Benefits from eating apples
There are many suggested benefits from apples that often makes us think of the old saying that an apple a day keeps the doctor away. In some ways this saying might have more meaning to it than we actually thought.
This article on the benefits of apples states a wide range of possible benefits that have been researched.
But with all this research one of my favorite benefits is still sitting down with a big slice of apple pie fresh & warm right out of the oven.
Baking an apple pie in one of my own cast iron pie pans has to be one of my favorite. Put a little bit of ice cream on top of it and you wont get any better.
I dont really have an actual recipe for this but you can follow along.
First take a cup of flour 1/8 tsp salt and 1/3 cup of vegetable oil
Mix flour & salt together then add the oil
cut it with a fork until it is flaky, then add two tablespoons of water and roll into a ball
Roll out until round shape and approx 1/8 ” thick. roll on your pin & transfer to the pan.
Next fill with your apple pie filling.
Now you can do the top crust the same way or you can
weave the top like these pictures.
If you do the weave make a double batch for the top so you have enough extra.
When your done brush egg white on the top and put in a preheated oven at 425′ for 40 to 45 minutes
