Autumn is here and that means it’s apple pie time. I always make it with an oil crust because if nothing else, it’s just easier. You can pat it into the pan but I find that rolling it between sheets of wax paper is the best way to use an oil crust, especially for the top. My apples of choice are granny smith ? and my thickener of choice is tapioca but flour works too.
Homemade apple pie is something special. We were at a social gathering last night and when desserts were set out, I told some friends I had just made an apple pie and it was cooling on the counter at home. If they wanted to, we could skip the prepared desserts and go to my house for apple pie. “Homemade apple pie? Let’s go!”
That’s the power of homemade apple pie. My husband’s two favorite desserts are my Fresh Strawberry Cake and Homemade Apple Pie. Nothing compares. I love this delicious pie and I must admit I like the power. I think I hear him in the garage right now cleaning things up. ? Click here for the recipe. – Jenny Jones

Jenny Congratulations on you and Denis getting married!!❤❤ speaking of strawberry cake, have you ever tried making this amazing cake into cupcakes? Our family is way too big for one cake and they all LOVE this recipe. So I was wondering if I made cupcakes and waited for them to cool off of course ?? chopped up strawberry filling and put In Turkey baster and filll cupcakes with filling then iced with heavy whipped cream topping with a sliced strawberry on top do you think it will work??? I thought 24 cupcakes would be better then 8 or 10 slices of cake for my family. Do you advise or not? Thanks in advance!!
Greeting from CT, Jenny! The apple pie recipe sounds so good. I want to thank you for encouraging us to cook and bake accurately. Aerating the flour, measuring with correct spoons and cups, proper leveling. I have to tell you that I’m sometimes appalled by some other cooking videos where people are measuring somewhat carelessly – either not quite filling the cup or spoon, or heaping it up or scooping flour right out of the bag and leveling it with a finger (a pet peeve). I even saw one person shaking baking powder right out of the can into a bowl of flour. What!? When I was teaching my boys to cook, I always told them to measure ingredients over the counter or sink, NOT over the bowl with other ingredients, in case of spilling or pouring too much and ruining what you already did. Here’s to delicious – and careful – cooking and baking!
