It’s hard to beat a great slice of pie–especially if it’s apple pie–and this time of year, there is no shortage of apples in Washington State. So many delicious varieties are available now and with a husband in the biz, I get to try varieties both unique and still under development. Even now, I’ve got a bag of Pink Pearls tucked away and I find myself with a severe case of decision paralysis when it comes to what to do with them. A pie? A tart? Chutney? But I digress. This recipe is all about the ubiquitous Golden Delicious. While many bakers immediately reach for a tart apple when baking a pie, my husband surprised me when he came home with some of the most mammoth Goldens I had ever seen and, with a smile, requested pie. Come to find out, Golden Delicious apple pie is actually a favorite around the office and he was eager to give it a whirl.
