Apple Pies

A Poem by Maria
"

I really love baking and one of my specialty is Fresh baked apple pie.

"








How I love a scrumptious apple,
red and shiny with a crunch.
And they come in all colors,
and texture too.
Granny Smith are the best
for Apple Pies...
Yet I love to mix them up,
and make my own pies.
Always start with the pie shell,
Flour, water and sugar
plus some cinnamon.
You cannot forget the butter 
of course, as its a very 
important element.
Once its done and kneaded through,
I put it aside.
Wash them apples and 
core them through
before the slicing begins...
Sugar, cinnamon, Nutmeg
and a tad bit of lemon juice
go into the mix.
At times I might add
some extra things,
like almonds, walnuts 
or raisins too.
I let it sit for an
hour or two, 
before rolling out the dough
and placing them
inside the pie dish.
I take my time, to stretch it out,
gingerly, and tenderly.
I place the apples on the inside,
and make puncture holes on top,
after covering the top,
I add a smudge of butter
and sugar on top.
And then into the 
oven it goes, for 
up to 35 minutes or so.
I let the top turn a tad bit
brown, before bringing out the pie.
Oh how it smells and warm 
to the touch, as everyone
awaits it to cool down,
just a tad bit.
And onto a plate, a slice 
goes on, with some
rich, vanilla ice cream scoop.
After that, it can last up to a day
or two, depending on how
much you eat in the day.
The aroma fills up the entire house,
and everyone, savors what is to come.
I love to bake my apple pies,
from scratch, and make em
with much Love.

I envy you this, my husband is a phenomenal baker and loves baking anything with 15 or more ingredients and at least 20 steps! I would be completely insane just gathering the ingredients! Your apple pie sounds scrumptious. I'm a Bisquick kinda baker myself....

Thank you once again, you are an excellent writer yourself, my friend. Good afternoon to you. :)
This poem really brought back some fond memories for me. When I was little, my family and I would go to my grandmother's house. In the backyard, everyone would get together at the picnic bench with tall trees an woods as a backdrop. My grandmother would bring out the apple pies still hot and smelling great. I'm glad I read this, thanks.

A poetically culinary lip-smacking good write – could almost ‘smell’ the bake and feel the ice cream melting! Delicious … :-)

You just did a brilliant job of describing such a popular and delicious dessert! The texture and aroma is there leaping off the page. I haven't had it in awhile but it's in the cards now. Outstanding use of imagery. Great work!

YOU'RE KILLING ME!!!! I'm coming right over!!! This is a great description of baking a pie. You've managed to add just the right amount of ingredient details -- not long & drawn out, but a quick summary that makes for good reading flow. So many awesome touches, it feels like I'm watching you bake. My mouth is watering. I'm so jealous. I can't make a pie to save my life! *gobble! yum!*
