Apple Pie - Fruit Pie Dessert.
If not in season, my kids love to eat fresh apple but when it's abundant they don't bother to get even a slice. Kids are always unpredictable when it comes to taste! Just being a mom, I have to find ways for them to eat nutritious snacks without spending too much on food rarity. When apples are everywhere, that's the time I have to make an apple pie. So I wanna share an easy apple pie recipe that I always do even though apple pie is an american classic dessert but all the ingredients like fresh apples and others are available just around the local grocery store. So there's no excuse why anyone or any mom can't do this nutritious fruit pie for the whole family. If you're that passionate mom, you can try this pie recipe with other season fruits around like buko (young coconut), langka (jackfruit) or mango. One key to have successful fruit pie is patience of kneading. I myself having a lot of sweats when it comes to kneading (masa). I do believe yummy food comes from hard labor. No wonder how desserts like cake recipes and pies are heavenly delightful! Just be patient and enjoy kneading! =)

Here's How To Make Apple Pie:

5 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup  
1/4 teaspoon fine salt                                       
2 cups butter/margarine 
1 large egg, lightly beaten
4 tablespoons or more cold water

rolling pin for kneading (Masa).
