I'll Show Him...

About a week into Ronnie's TDY trip to Paraguay, he told me that some one's wife had baked an apple pie and sent it into the office. He told the guy, "You're so lucky, I'll never get homemade apple pie because my wife doesn't like baked fruit." Well, in my defense, he never asked me to bake an apple pie. Just because I won't eat it, doesn't mean I wouldn't make it for him. So, I was on a mission to make an apple pie before he got home. I searched for recipes and finally decided on the ones I would use (there was one for the crust, one for the filling and one for the topping). I made the pie and brought it into work for friends to try. Being that I don't like apple pie, I couldn't be a taste tester. Everyone who tried it really liked it. I was pleased. In addition to the cookies I made, I also prepared the crust for the apple pie I would make for Ronnie.On Thursday evening, I told Ronnie I had a surprise for him, but I needed his help. I got out all of the ingredients, started peeling the apples then called Ronnie into the kitchen to ask for his help.I gave him the bowl of apples and read off all the ingredients he needed to mix in. I think he then realized what we were making. He made the filling while I started to roll out the dough for the crust.Instead of a crust topping, the recipe I used was a struessel topping.I popped it in the oven and out came this beauty:I was so proud. Ronnie really liked it, too!
