Pie crust as it should be

It’s all because my boyfriend likes apple pie.

And because my past apple pies, while tasty, didn’t knock my socks off.

So I went to the Food Network website, which is often where I begin searching for recipes when I want to try something new.

And there it was—Apple Pie As It Should Be. That recipe title alone—kind of conceited, kind of intriguing—got me curious. When I saw the addition of red wine vinegar in the buttery crust; I was ready to bake.

Usually, I think of pie crust as something that holds the good stuff together. I often eat only part of it, sometimes none at all.

But not this one.

The filling of this pie was lovely; but it was the crust that delighted me the most. Slightly sweet, flaky and flavorful, it was everything I’ve ever wanted in a pie crust.

It’s just too good to keep to myself.

So cradle your next pie filling in something special—pie crust as it should be.

Enjoy!
