My girls and I had a great time making apple pie together. They helped me peel the apples, mix the filling, make the crust and roll it out. Usually, when I make a pie, they aren't all that interested in helping. They might add a few ingredients and then get distracted by something more interesting. But this time, I loved it that they seemed to want to learn how to make a pie and to spend time with me. I felt so honored that my teenager and almost teen wanted to spend their day that way.
Even my son helped out with decorating the top crust. We put it in the oven and eagerly awaited for it to be done. After about 40 minutes, the top was golden brown and tempting us with its aroma of cinnamon and sugar. We could hardly wait for my husband to get home so we could eat dinner and then have a slice. It was worth the wait.
