I will tell you what's not to love. The hundreds of apples that fall from the tree daily and immediately begin to rot and turn to mush. The man from the city who gives you a warning that if you don't clean up the apples you will get fined.
So we have spent many a day helping our Granny out, picking up rotting apples, only to have them replaced with new fallen apples next day. The upside is that we have gotten to pick lots of fresh apples too. Not a bad deal.
Martha Stewart's pie crust Pate Brisee with Bobby Flay's Apple Pie recipe. Although it was much easier, I don't I don't like this recipe as much as the recipe that sautes the apples in a little butter first.and reduces the juices.
After so many pies this summer, I really am enjoying a good apple crumble more. Cook's Illustrated has a great crumble recipe.
