Re: Proverbs 3.14

In all honesty, the pie seems to have turned out pretty good. The only thing is the upper crust fell down in the middle even though I put in a lot of apples - I used the Cortland and Granny Smith varieties. Before choosing the Betty Crocker recipe, I researched apple pies and found it is alright to use tart apples because you put sugar on the apples anyway. I used about 1/2 the butter called for but other than that I adhered strictly to the recipe - I especially like the taste of the lemon and cinnamon. The last time I deviated from the recipe by substituting baking soda for flour which resulted in an unmitigated disaster of epic proportions which scarred me psychologically - it took all these many months for me to finally come to grips with that failure sufficiently enough to attempt another pie. I am now taking the pie with me to New Jersey to share it with my family. I made it for my Mom's birthday. Please monitor this thread periodically for updates and I will let you know either late tomorrow or more likely Monday if it was indeed a success. I know my family at the table will tell me it is good even if it is not but I can count on my little sister afterwards to tell me the truth whether or not I want to hear the answer.
