Four and twenty kitties, baked in a pie..

Just kidding, I didn’t bake any cats into pies today. I made my very first apple pie from scratch! Me the girl who used to define “apple pie” solely as what they sold in McDonald’s Hong Kong can now produce a circular pie!

I used Smitten Kitchen’s apple pie recipe with her recommended changes, and also her flaky buttery pie dough. If any of you are looking for a recipe and a walk through, she is definitely your gal! Just don’t be like me and apply egg whites after the pie’s been in the oven for a good 8 minutes.  I had some dough left over and she did say to get crafty so kittiez it was!

Apple pie with a cat.. or two

Sing a song of sixpence,
A pocket full of rye.
Four and twenty blackbirds,
Baked in a pie.

In the 16th century people thought it was funny to put live song birds into a pie so they fluttered out when you cut into it. What if one of them got nicked? …Poor little birdies.
