It's Pie Time

pie timeLast week I wrote a blog on finding windfall apples in my neighborhood and the pie I hoped to make with them. Actually, the day after writing the blog I brought two schnitz apple pies into the office to share with my cohorts. The pies were a hit and I now plan to make an apple dessert each fall from found apple (apples I didn't grow, but are from abandoned apple trees) to share with the staff.

Schnitz pie was my father’s favorite pie. He was quite disappointed when I learned to enjoy it, as that meant one less piece for him! You might notice that the photo of the pie is not s pristine as I would have preferred it to be. Before I could locate a camera, the pie had been ravaged by my office mates – I guess I should take that as a compliment.

Here's the recipe.

Line a pie pan with crust - store bought or homemade.

Sprinkle a quarter-cup of brown sugar and a quarter-teaspoon of cinnamon onto the crust.



Peel half a dozen good-sized apples and slice them thin into the crust. The apples should fill the pie pan.

I have been all over the net to find that pie. I had the instructions once, then in a number of moves it just vanished. It is a great pie.
