THE Rogers Family Apple Pie

Its Mark's favorite dessert, passed down from Grandma Rogers. Mark's mom is a pro at making it. I have observed her in action several times, hoping to soak up her apple pie making abilities. I have been attempting it once a year, for his birthday for about 7 years now. It is quite the daunting task. BUT this year, I slayed the beast. I was able to fold up that pie dough and place it in the pan with no issues (except having to patch it together some here and there. ) This is the first time I have done it without help, and that I haven't gone crazy.

If there was something I could tell my newly married self it would be this: ask for more help with cooking and baking. No one is supposed to have it all magically figured out!

All I can say is: I tried and tried when you were growing up to interest you in the culinary arts! Start Hopey and Anna young!

Wow! It was good! Thanks for persevering, Stephanie. I know it is a labor of love.

By the way everyone -- this is the best Apple Pie in the world. Perfect ratio of crust to Apples.

WOW -- it's looks wonderful I think you have passed me up in the apple pie making dept. You are right, no one has the cooking thing magically figured out. I have never been a very good cook, but it was worse the first years of marriage. Ask Steve some of the stories. love you
