Feeling adventurous and ambitious, I baked an apple pie. Pie making is perhaps the most challenging endeavor I have ever taken in my short but glorious baking career. (Ahem...) It was serious business, that required tedious and meticulous preparation and execution. The dough for the pie crust must not be over worked, the butter must be well chilled and the pie making dos-and-don'ts list goes on and on. In the end, it was risky business too, as chances to suceed and to fail are equally just as great. It would certainly be disheartening, if not annoying to find that the pie turn out crappy after slaving for hours kneading and whisking and cutting and chopping.
In the end, mine turned out like this: dough was not enough for the crust, pie crust slightly burnt and the apple filling was a tad too moist and too sweet. Well it was tasty nonetheless, according to me!
