Passing on Delicious Traditions

My sweet and super creative friend, Luna, wanted a little lesson in pie baking! I have done many events with her and she is a phenomenal florist! We finally had a day off at the same time and couldn't wait to get some baking going. After my Pie with the Queen lesson I felt totally prepared for some Sunday Funday Tipsy Baking lessons!

We started with some huge Washington Apples from Costco. These bebes were juicy and delicious!

We sliced them up and added 2 tablespoons of Tapioca, 1.5 teaspoons cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, 1 cup sugar, splash of vanilla and a squeeze of lemon juice to get the flavors going.....instantly made the whole house smell DELISH!!!

Then for the dough! The most important part! Fruit can do it's job easy...but the crust needs much work and help! We just had to bust out the Sauvignon Blanc to make it happen!

We used Granny's Recipe, of course!

Stirring up the filling again...maybe an excuse to smell this deliciousness!

Luna loves photography and I think she is hired full time for my blog...if only I can pay her in sweets! I think this is my favorite pic that I have posted!

After covering the pie with crust we made the slits for steam.

Ready to eat with some vanilla ice cream! YUMMMMM!

Thanks for joining me Luna! I can't wait to learn how to make your Abuelita's tortillas, frijoles y arroz! I was just so entertained to know that both of our grandmother's secret ingredients would be lard! ;) I guess we are both carrying on the tradition of knowing what makes things delicisous! I love it!

Cheers to carrying on delicious family traditions, no matter how fattening!!


Tipsy..and Luna!
