Apple Pie

The baking bug is still on. It has been a quite a while since we last had an apple pie . And since there were lotz of green apples left in the fridge which no one seems interested to eat, I cut them up and cook it with some brown sugar , add in some ground cinnamon and nutmeg….hmmmm the aroma of this fragrant spices filled the kitchen the whole evening. Prepared the pastry dough in a whiff and ta ta tada…the apple pie is ready for baking. I added in some sultanas into the apple fillings since I have lotz of them in the fridge. (",) This dessert is best eaten with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream….yummy yummz
