Back in September we went to visit my Grandparents who live on Vancouver Island. We arrived right at the tail end of harvesting season so my Gramps and I decided to visit some orchards and pick some apples. Well, needless to say one thing led to another and before you know it there was just over 200 lbs of freshly picked apples, pears, and squash in the back of my car, all ready to be made into something delicious. As you can imagine, the next few weeks were filled with apple everything. I made apple crisp, apple sauce, pear sauce, apple butter, and many, many apple pies.
The thing about having over 100 lbs of apples is that by the end of it, you get pretty darn good at making pie.
My go to crust for throughout this entire ordeal was this old fashioned all butter pie crust. It's simple, it only calls for 3 ingredients, and honestly it makes for a pretty darn great tasting crust. It rolls out beautifully, makes for a flaky pie crust, and browns just the right amount in the oven.
PS - If you're local, be sure to check the "Classes" tab at the top of this page to sign up for this month's pie making class using this crust!
