apple pie It’s Pie Day today!!

No, not Pi Day. That’s not until March. This is actual Pie Day.

Does you know wear you’re mittens are?

I no wear mine are…. :-) (And Know. I don’t knead no spell-check)

apple pie We got the idea for this pie from the wonderful article “Home for the Holidays” by Roberta Corradin published in SAVEUR Magazine #134. The recipe that she and her mother use for their pie is here: Torta di Sant’Antonio (Sant’Antonio Apple Tart).

We only loosely followed the recipe by reducing some Sangiovese and then tossing it into the sliced apples before adding them to a cheddar cheese pie crust. The crust was just regular pastry with some grated cheddar cheese thrown in.

I must say, it was pretty spectacular pie. We really should make it again.

Because we made the pie pictured here last October (I meant to post about it earlier. I really did).

For cheddar cheese pastry, add 1/2 cup grated old cheddar cheese to the flour before cutting in the shortening.
