  1. This is my fave idea ever!!! It’s so beautiful and simple and I bet it made a huge (and yummy) impression! Thanks for the idea!

  2. That looks fun, tasty, and beautiful!

  3. We all love apple pie and I just love this recipe, it looks very simple too.

    When my mom was alive she used to make baked apples with cinnamon and brown sugar. I’ve tried a few times to find a good baked apple recipe but none ever came out as good as hers. Maybe this Fall that’s what I’ll do with apples. I’ll try again to find a recipe that we all really like. You inspired me.

  4. How fun! I learned to make apple pie without peeling the apples from you! I NEVER peel the apples anymore!

  5. THAT LOOKS SOOOO YUMMY!

  6. Okay, this may be a silly question, but what do you mean when you say, “Fold it upon itself?” Thanks….

  7. Great Idea. BTW I love the CD case mountain. Pretty cool!

  8. @Lana – to make it “flake” as this is a pressed crust not a rolled one, you fold it so it has something to “flake” Basically I flatten it out once into a big circle and then fold it till it is in quarters, then flatten it out again by pressing on the dough with our palms. Does that make sense? I wish I had a person who would take photos of me while I do some stuff! Alas, it’s just me 🙂 Hope my description helps.

  9. Interesting point of view.Thanks for the post. – I dont have to attend every argument Im invited to. – W.C.Filelds 1880-1954
