Making Apple Pie!

cP1020299

On a lovely fall morning at the Center, with a kitchen full of ingredients, we made four delicious apple pies. At one table, flour and shortening, water and salt, and an egg were stirred into pie crust.  The dough was rolled out into four shells and four tops, ready for filling. Another table was surrounded by children peeling, coring and cutting up apples, then adding the spices and sugar needed to make a fabulous filling. The pies were piled high with fruit, covered, given a light dusting of sugar, and put in the oven to bake. A long, fragrant hour later, everyone sat down to incredibly delicious hot apple pie, with ice cream!
