Apple Harvest And Apple Pie Making

This year I have decided to make apple pie with the children. Mind you I have two babies in my care right now so this is going to be simple apple pie:)

Also keep in mind I have never made a apple pie before in my life!

First we took Jada apple picking at our favorite local apple orchard. We went 2 weeks earlier this year so we didn't get our favorite apples but we still had fun and came home with a large bag full.

See I do my child's hair once in a while ha-ha!

I had to crop this picture to hide my baby bump. I am in that awkward stage of just looking very fat!

Now onto the apple pie baking................................................................

First we cut and washed our apples

Then stirred the flour, apples, sugar and cinnamon together

Remember I said this had to be simple? well I bought 2 pie crusts from the grocery store. So everything in the bowl went into the shell. We topped it off with some butter then put the top crust on and slit some holes in it for vents.

We baked it for 40 minutes at 350F

It's not the best looking pie but it is so tasty and as promised it was simple:)

Oh, this pie looks wonderful. It's so nice when they can help and feel good about it. I'm sure you're baby bump is cuter than you think, but I remember what you mean. Congrats!

I wish we were lucky enough to live where we could go and pick our own apples! Such fun. I just posted on my blog about our cooking lesson for making apple pies with my cooking group. Hope you can use some of the ideas to follow up with literacy with your little one.
