I almost forgot to mention this. For Christmas day I baked another pie, and this time, I remembered to take a picture to help prove I really did make it from scratch.
Ok, so I admit there's not 100% proof here in this picture. All you see are the apple guts and the finished unbaked pie. But there is a rolling pin in the background with some flour on it. Next time I'll get some step-by-step pictures of the whole process, ok?
