It’s Pie Day Friday again! Thank goodness.
This week in Seattle has been pretty dark and rainy and a little bit tired, too, so a fat slice of Apple Crumb Pie seems like the right thing to do today.
I brought this pie to a big family dinner last weekend. All of the cousins can’t be together on Christmas, so we celebrated a few weeks early with big plates of homemade macaroni and cheese, fake Santa beards/reindeer antlers, and plenty of pie to go around. Plus ice cream, because warm pie duh and also because Christmas.
I love the warmth and comfort of homemade apple pie. On a chilly, windswept and drizzly day, is there anything better? Flaky, all-butter crust meets spiced and yielding apples meets crisp and oat-y crumbles. Say it with me: YES PLEASE.
And I love how easily this pie turns from dessert into breakfast, without even batting an eyelash. It just makes sense and feels right so let’s just hold hands and eat some pie, okay?
Ice cream optional (but not really).
