Vegetable Potpie Vegetable Potpie Ken Ku

I was a little tired of eating out at restaurants all the time (haven't cooked for the past two months) so Jen and I decided to cook.  We spent the day trying to figure what we would make and ended up with pies.  Chicken vegetable potpie (sorry I'm vegetarian) and an old fashioned apple pie.  Of course we make everything from scratch and the results are delicious.  All the butter makes the pastry extra flaky and I almost couldn't wait for the pies to come out of the oven.  The anticipation is unbearable but I know when I take my first bite it will be worth it.

As soon as the vegetable potpie was in the oven, we started on the apple pie.  We decided to use mix two different types of apples today: Golden Delicious and Gala.  I have never made apple pies before and was pleasantly surprised when I found out just how simple it was.  There was really only a couple steps.  Peel and slice the apples, mix with sugar and spices, add in some lemon zest and juice, toss, let it sit for a couple minutes, then mix in the corn starch.  Put the pastry into the pie plate, fill with apples, top with the top of the pie, bake.  Cool then enjoy.

So...maybe that was overly simplified but it really was easy.

A la mode is my favourite way to enjoy apple pie.
