4th of July Apple Pie

I love how pie crust is an artistic medium. I made two of these pies to give to friends. They were very impressed!  I made apple pie so the name would rhyme and added the stars and stripes to make them beautiful and patriotic. 

I brushed on a little milk and sprinkled with generous amount of sugar to give the crust a crispy crunch. Milk can make a crust brown too quickly, so make sure to lightly rest a sheet of foil over the pie when it looks just right. Then finish baking as normal. How have you prettied up your pies? 

Have a great 4th!

  1. I love your 4th of July pie! I will try that next year. My signature "design" is the cut out a heart shape, place it in the middle of the top pie crust, and to cut 1/2 inch lines (for venting) at the 2, 4, 8, and 10 o'clock sides. Or 12, 3, 6, and 9 o'clock sides. Lisa Stephens
