Wait, no pumpkin pie? That sounds very un-American to me. Is Bruce a socialist? *snork*

Apple pie is going to be easy as pie.

The most important thing is to use those Pillsbury pie crust things that are in the refrigerated section. They are easy to use and they taste real. Don't use those frozen pie shells. They're awful.

I don't have a tried and true recipe for you because I haven't made one in a long time but I'm sure someone will come along with a recipe. I just had to post and hear myself speak. I'm good at that.

Costco has a very good apple pie. *g*

Pillsbury pie crust things are an absolute must.. ABSOLUTE!

Apple pie: Apples peeled, cored & sliced sliced -- you will prob need about 4 or 5 apples depending on the size of them. ( By the time I'm finished the pies are usually overflowing and making a mess. But of so good.)

Mix the sliced apples with appox 1/2 cup of sugar & 1/2 cup of cinnamon.( you may need a bit more.keep those 2 items even.) Make sure when you put the crust on the top that you fork the edges. ( you know press the edges together with the fork .. <g>.) Put a few cuts in the top crust to let the air out.

325degrees.. for about an hr or until top is a light brown / let cool a bit .. serve with ice cream or whipped cream .. whichever you prefer.

*** For the crust follow the directions on the package******

Have fun enjoy.

**Mrs Smith's frozen Dutch Apple pie in the freezer section is very good too.) That way you'll have more time together. Sh! just take it out of the box, ditch the box, put the pie in a pie tin heat & serve. No one's the wiser . giggle


(((((((((( hugs)))))))))))

I usually make homemade crust, but store bought's fine. Let's face it: Thanksgiving is busy!

Here's what I do: 6 apples, peeled and cored, 3/4 C sugar, 1/4 C flour, 3-4 T cinnamon, dash of nutmeg, and (ta-da) 1/4-1/2 C apple juice or cider. Mix together, bake in crust at 425 for 15 minutes, then back down to 350 for another 1/2 hour.

Note: If you do a top crust like I do, you can either do a lattice top or solid top with a few vent holes (done with sharp knife). During most of the baking, I usually have foil loosely over the top of the pie to keep it from burning, then take foil off for the last 15 minutes.

Yummy.

rofl good choice (((((((((( Melynn)))))))))))), (((((((((( PBS)))))))))))))) &

(((((((( rjs ))))))))))))), it's been so long since I made one..knew I'd forget something. See forgot the flour & the nutmeg ....

It's like one time making my fudge thought I'd cut down on the sugar... BIG MISTAKE..... ended up with liquid fudge. Oh my/ Should have poured it into glasses, top with whipped cream, and called it my new recipe.

ROTFLMAO!!! Irish and PBS, you're too much! My younger two sons won't let me forget about the time I forgot to put flour in the pumpkin bread! I'd forgotten to buy baking powder, ran to the closest store (thank goodness it was open for Thanksgiving) and bought the b.p. I wanted to remember that before I left, I'd added everything up to the flour...when I came home, I thought it was "everything up to and including the flour. Flattest. Pumpkin bread. Ever.

PBS, when my entire family used to all get together, my mom and grandma used to roll their eyes and crack on one aunt who always brought Mrs. Smith's frozen apple pies for holiday meals. Aunt E. didn't bake much, but she wanted to bring something. I always felt kind-of bad for Aunt E., since she was pretty cool in a funny sort-of way. So, while I liked Mom's homemade pies, I always made sure to have a piece of Aunt E.'s pie and thank her for bringing it.

Aunt E. died years ago...But I can never, ever look at a Mrs. Smith's pie (esp. apple) without getting kind-of teary-eyed.

awww..that's totally a sweet story RJ!! Mrs. Smiths for sure! and I'll think about your aunt E too!

my granny made EVERYTHNING for thanksgiving dinners when she was alive..wouldn't let anyone else help..and with 8 kids and a million grandkids, there were plenty of us to help! But I have lots of special memories of her cooking too...

I love the holidays..and am so looking forward to this coming one as our first one together!

I'm sure you'll both have a great Thanksgiving.

I've got to share a Thanksgiving story. Before Friend-Hubby and I were officially a couple, I'd invited him to Thanksgiving dinner. Just before he was to be here, I had to run to the store and told my oldest son to keep an eye out of our guest. Well, (future) friend-hubby didn't see my car in the driveway and thought I'd stood him up. I got home, never saw him, and figured he'd stood me up. Next morning, I went to pay my lease for the cab and was told by the owner's mom, "I hear you stood someone up yesterday!" Nothing like a bad case of mis-communication. We were married just before the next Thanksgiving, so he got his turkey dinner. We used to kid that some people will go to extremes to get a turkey dinner.

F.-H. died 2 years ago, the week before Halloween, so I knew that that Thanksgiving'd be difficult. The first week in November, I had a little extra cash, my favorite store was having a sale on turkey, so I bought one for my younger 2 and me. The next day, my oldest son's MIL called from TN to say that a friend of hers'd be calling me that evening. Friend called and informed me, "I just called the Publix near you and ordered a large turkey dinner for you with all the trimmings." She'd already charged it, so I couldn't say 'no'. All I had to do was pick it up the day before Thanksgiving.

Great, I thought. I'll save the turkey I bought for Christmas.

Well, the next day, I'm on the phone and my youngest tells me, "S. and C. (our next door neighbors) are out walking their twins. S. is carrying a box. They're coming up the driveway." Another frozen turkey and trimmings. Then another neighbor brought a frozen turkey. FOUR TURKEYS!!!

Next day, I told a friend who still drives cab. He looked at me kind-of funny before saying, "I'm glad you told me. I was planning to order a turkey dinner with all the trimmings from Publix for you!" Needless to say, I thanked him profusely for the thoughts, but also asked him to use that money for Christmas presents for his family.

Just when you think you have people figured out...

What a wonderful story ((((((((rjs))))))))))))), People can be pretty amazing at times. After my father passed away.. my mom decided that on Thanksgiving we should get together as usual. The thing she did was to call her fav restaurant and set up the time for dinner. Then call each of her kids and say ... dinner is at ... time , and being held at Stephan James House.

We were there. It was great. No cooking, no clean up & a great time. Then we would all go back to her house. My old bedroom became the playroom for the kids. She would have surprises for all the kids. The adults would have a toast to family that were here, and one for those who passed on.

Very thankful for those memories. Very thankful for the family here in WOW. How blessed I am to have each of you here.
