Grandma's Apple Pie


What better way to show off in the kitchen then buy making a homemade pie? This may not belong in the "health" section but I live life on the edge. It's all about balance, right? Over the holidays, it dawned on me that this is something I have yet to learn how to do. I called Nick's Grandma and she invited me over to teach me how to make the most amazing Apple Pie I've ever had. If you want a visual tutorial the video below will show you how to do it step by step.
