There have been some very delicious looking recipes for apple pie posted by some fellow bloggers recently and has resulted in giving me a craving for them. When it comes to baked goodies it’s very rare that I will rush out to buy them – part of the satisfaction for me is in the anticipation while making the dish ( a bit like foreplay). I was chuffed when I came across this simple and easy recipe for an apple pie by Jeremy Mansfield as I find making pastry to be tedious.
It’s pretty impressive and heartwarming to see how successful his career change has been as a cook book author – his first cook book is listed as the no. 1 bestseller locally. The recipe for the easy as apple pie is from his second cook book and all his recipes have an interesting and funny story. Browsing in a kitchenware store recently – I also came across his line of crockery .
This recipe is delicious and quick and easy.
