VeganMofo: Apple Pah
So, last night I baked a pie. Despite the fact that making homemade pie crusts is a very simple task, I still used a pre-made crust for the bottom. I'm lazy. For the top lattice crust, I used the pie crust recipe from The Joy of Vegan Baking. The apple pie filling recipe is also from The Joy of Vegan Baking. Overall, this was a tasty pie. The granny smiths were nice and tart. I know I've been hard on this cookbook in the past, and I'm afraid that once again I was unmoved by a recipe from it. Even after sitting overnight, the pie filling simply did not firm up. I don't know what it is, but every recipe I try from JOVB is lackluster at best. And I see other bloggers raving about it, so it must be me! But I will give it this one credit, which is the lattice crust was perfect. Nice and flaky!
Regardless, we still got some nice hot apples and crust to enjoy with a scoop of vanilla So Delicious. How bad could that be?
