At one time we had a cherry, pear, peach, prune and of course 3 apple trees! They were beautiful, expertly pruned by him and produced the best fruit I've ever had. Sadly, over the years, many of these beautiful tree's had their day in the sun, but the mighty apple still remains. Every fall means bushels of apples which we use to make apple sauce, apple crisp and of course apple pie. I used the recipe from Williams-Sonoma's, The Essentials of Baking cookbook. If you love baking then you need this book in your life.

I will never make another apple pie without these two gadgets. The apple slicer is from, of course where else? Williams-Sonoma! It cores and cuts the apples. You can choose how thick or thin you want your apple slices from two different settings. I have pictured here the thinest setting.
I found the pie crust cutter at Home Outfitters.
The pie was excellent and nothing makes your kitchen smell more welcoming and cosy :)
