Apples, Cinnamon, Buttery, Flaky Pie Crust… It must be fall!
We think of apple pie as all-American but you may be surprised to learn that the first recipe for apple pie goes back to 1381 England. Geoffrey Chaucer’s written recipe must have been delicious, it included apples, figs, raisins, pears and a pastry shell with absolutely no sugar.
Dutch apple pies date back to the 1600s and also included lemon, cinnamon and sometimes raisins and icing. I’ve just started a Dutch apple pie… no crumbles on the top yet, but it’s coming along nicely. Here’s a sneak peek…
Can you just imagine the warm fragrance of apples & cinnamon baking in the oven? There are several pies in progress on my tile and I will list them in my Etsy as time allows. Until then, enjoy a slice of real apple pie this fall and give a nod to Geoffrey Chaucer for a brilliant idea!
