You know that deep dish apple pie that Costco sells? I usually daydream about it at least twice a day, seriously. It is so perfect. Plenty of soft apples spiced up just right inside of a thick flaky crust, the perfect apple pie. Last time we were home I bought one for dinner, my dinner, with a tub of vanilla bean ice cream. It was the perfect dinner, dessert, and breakfast the next day. And no, I didn’t share if you were wondering. So my apple pie craving has come to Costa Rica and I just had to have it out last night. I was feeling lazy but knew that an apple pie wasn’t going to bake itself so I put on a good TV show and started.
Delicious Rating: First the crust. Very simple with a food processor and by far the best pie crust I have ever eaten in my life, no joke. It is flaky, soft, crusty, and tastes amazing on its own which I think a pie crust should be able to do. The Apple Pie filling is delicious to in this easy recipe. I cut the apples up thinly and tossed with a few ingredients. Let them sit while I rolled out the crusts so that all the juices could flow. I didn’t add all the juice to the pie so that it wouldn’t be overly soggy. It was perfect. I am thinking another tomorrow… This is my 98th recipe so two more to kick off the 100th Recipe Giveaway!
