April's Pie Dish Winner & New Giveaway
In April I hosted a giveaway sponsored by CSNStores. The prize was an Emile Henry Pie Dish that is sold at the Cookware.com store. On April 12, I picked the winner and informed neonsafari (Ron) that he was the lucky person….he and his wife were both excited by that news! Recently he posted this picture of his yummy looking apple pie on FaceBook and I asked if I could share it, along with the recipe, with my readers and he was kind enough to allow me to do so. I love pie and especially apple pie and this almost made my mouth water.....his wife Sue posted later and said that the pie was delicious!

1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie
1/2 cup unsalted butter
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
8 Granny Smith apples - peeled, coredand sliced
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Melt the butter in a saucepan. Stir in flour to form a paste. Add water, white sugar and brown sugar, and bring to a boil. Reduce temperature and let simmer.
2. Place the bottom crust in your pan. Fill with apples, mounded slightly. Cover with a lattice work of crust. Gently pour the sugar and butter liquid over the crust. Pour slowly so that it does not run off.
3. Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Continue baking for 35 to 45 minutes, until apples are soft.
Ron couldn't have timed this any better, as I've recently been in contact with CSNStores and have been offered the opportunity to host another giveaway. This time the winner will win a $60 gift certificate that can be used toward a purchase at any one of their 200 stores.
Stay tuned for more details......
