Laura's Apple Pie recipe here

Readers have asked me to share Laura's famous apple pie from Gold in my Pocket so here it is. Enjoy.

3/4 cup sugar
3 T flour
1/2 t cinnamon
1/8 t allspice
6 c sliced peeled apples
pastry for a double crust pie

Combine first six ingredients. Transfer onto a the bottom crust in a pie plate. Place top crust over filling, seal, and flute. Cut four slits in top for steam to escape.Bake in a medium hot oven (about 350 degrees) for 55-60 minutes or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly. 

Safe from the storm

Thanks for the inquiries but we weathered yesterday's storm with only minor problems. There are a few downed branches and lots of damaged plants but that's nothing compared to people's property in the towns north of us. Again thanks for asking and thank goodness for blue skies today.

Summer's here and that means summer reading

Only a few days of school left and then it's on to my balcony with ice tea and a stack of books. To me that's heaven. If you like action and a bit of history in a fresh setting check out Gold in My Pocket.
