Apple Pie revisited

You know how they say things often look better in the morning? Well the pies did. The above picture doesn't do the pie justice. In fact it doesn't look much better than the picture I took the night before, but believe me, the morning after I baked the pies, everything settled down and the pies looked very yummy. I delivered them to the school and the next day, one of the volunteer moms said, "You made those pies?" (with wide, unbelieving eyes) and I said "Yes. Did they taste okay?" and she shook her head up and down vigorously and said, "Yes!" I feel better now.
Just a little something I'm working on. It's much prettier than the apple pie. A lot more work. I will write an epic about this let me tell you. Is it fairworthy? Definitely. Will it win the BIG ribbon? I'm hoping, but only the judges can say for sure. Three months till entries are due and counting.
