Thanks to a truly remarkable group of volunteers who mix, cook and bake night after night, RMH families never go hungry.
And my oh my do our volunteers do a GREAT job! We have some of the BEST cooks in the Triad donating their resources, talents and time to serve delicious meals and big helpings of love in our dining room each and every night.
Speaking of big helpings, take a look at this pie.
This is not your average apple pie. This pie is a Ronald McDonald House-sized pie. The photo really doesn't do it justice. I didn't even know that they made pie tins this big! Here's a close up, try not to drool...
This pie was lovingly baked by a volunteer who is new to our Meal Program.
Carol Nelson was once a caterer and she now enjoys volunteering her time and talents with local organizations. Last week she cooked a wonderful meal for our families and graciously shared her pie recipe with me to share with you. So, without further ado, I give you the most gigantic apple pie ever! The recipe is pretty straight forward so if you have all the ingredients handy, you could be eating one big slice of pie in about 60 minutes.
Prepare to unbutton the top button on those jeans!
5 or 6 tart apples sliced thin
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 teas nutmeg
1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 Tablespoons butter in small bits
3 tablespoons milk
Pie crust dough (refrigerated) for lattice top and bottom
Toss all ingredients together and place in pie crust. Cut remaining dough into strips and place in criss-cross pattern to form lattice top. Brush with some melted butter or spray with cooking spray.
Bake at 350 degrees until apples are done. (45 minutes to one hour)
