In the States, my family always buys our pies from the supermarket for Thanksgiving, but pies aren’t as easy to find here in Japan so when I came across an amazing apple pie recipe at Brown Eyed Baker, I had to try it! It was my first time baking a pie from scratch, and although it didn’t turn out perfectly, it was mouth watering.. and that’s the point, right? :)
Making dough wasn’t that bad! I always bought the Betty Crocker Pie Crust in a box, but it’s 800 yen (about $9) here so I figured I’d try a fun, cost-saving experiment.
The pie flattened out despite the apple-domed center, and I think the apples were too juicy, which didn’t allow the bottom dough to harden well. Still, the pie tasted scrumptious, and there’s nothing like vanilla ice cream to correct every error!
