2017 has given me the gift of Valentine’s Day and Pi Day with my favorite toddler. A BIG Thank You to Bonny for alerting me to this double goodness and then sharing a delicious recipe for Apple Hand Pies.
I’m honestly not sure Charlie even knew about Pie before today (and I’m positive he still doesn’t know about Pi) – but I think he might remember now! We followed the recipe pretty much as written (except that I bought Pillsbury pie crusts). We peeled and chopped apples and then cooked them in butter with a little sugar and cinnamon. Charlie kept a healthy distance from the stove.
And was happy to find a spoon to put the filling into the waiting crusts.
Of course he loved watching the baking.
(this wave was for his mama)
Note that I have no photo of the unbaked pies to share … here they are just out of the oven.
We waited until after nap to try one.
Wow! It was delicious.
Pi Day is still relatively new for me. I learned about it from Katie and Sara who both took pies into math class during high school. I guess it’s a big deal at Georgia Tech, too. I got a big kick out of their Instagram feed today, giving away pies. The rest of my Instagram feed has been (mostly) full of knitting, pies and snow. Of course on any day it’s mostly full of knitting. The pies are fun. and for all of you with snow, I wish I could share one of our pies with you! Stay warm!
