Happy Pi Day! Apple Style

March 14, 2012

Okay, I really half assed this one. But it’s Pi day and I wanted to make pie! Okay, I wanted to put up a pie blog on pi day. See, I don’t really like pie that much.

So last night I whipped up some dough from Vegan Pie In The Sky (my first time cracking it open). Either I didn’t chill it enough (very possible) or I overworked it. The dough was just “meh”. Probably all on me, since I was pretty apathetic during the whole process.

Then I had a bunch of apples to use up. It was that or mangos. I wasn’t stopping at the store. No apple pie recipe in the book though. Huh. Okay, so I threw some apples, sugar and cinnamon together. A bit too much cinnamon. Dotted it with margarine, put a lid on it and popped them in the oven.

It’s not that the pie isn’t edible, it just isn’t amazing. And it is more of a cinnamon pie. Oops. At least I got a chance to use my mini pie pans! I have a lot of left over dough and it is pretty easy to work with. Thinking it might need some chocolate. I’ll let you know.

    Did you look up apples in the back? I’m pretty sure there are several apple-based recipes.

      Yep, but I wanted just plain apple pie. Next time I should just crack open the recipes that my grandma passed down. Oh, to be so lazy!
