Apple Slab Pie update.

Well, I made the pie and it turned out pretty decent. It's not an award winning pastry, but I won't get any complaints from the guys I work with. I used this recipe: https://www.bakepedia.com/apple-crumb-slab-pie-pat-crust/

I followed the recipe except for the filling. The only thing I did differently was to add a couple tablespoons of cornstarch and I cooked the filling in a large skillet until the juices were thickened and the apple slices had started to soften a little. I was surprised that the pastry did not get soggy at all.

If I make it again, I will probably only make about half the amount of crumb topping that it calls for and add a little more sugar to that mixture.

A reminder from Robert Reich.



Robert Reich
Your reminder that the Constitution doesn't set a limit on the number of Supreme Court justices. Lincoln added a tenth justice in 1863.

Republicans are packing the Court right now.
Robert Reich
Does a 6th GOP justice -- nominated by an impeached president who lost the popular vote by 3M, confirmed by GOP senators representing 15M fewer Americans than their Democratic colleagues, after Obama's pick couldn't even get a vote -- justify expanding the size of the Court?

I haven't checked the math on this, but it's a sobering thought.

200,000 Dead Americans at a height of 5 foot 9 would stretch, head-to-toe, 217 miles.

It would take over 3 and a half hours to drive past them all at 60 MPH.

In that time 150 more people would die. Another 862 feet.

Has anyone made apple pie with a no roll, oil based crust?

I have a bag of Granny Smith apples that I would like to use for Apple slab pie with a streusel topping. I will precook the filling to reduce the moisture, but I don't know how the pastry would hold up to a fruit pie.

I'm open to suggestions.

Scientific American Endorses Joe Biden

Scientific American has never endorsed a presidential candidate in its 175-year history. This year we are compelled to do so. We do not do this lightly.

The evidence and the science show that Donald Trump has badly damaged the U.S. and its peopleóbecause he rejects evidence and science. The most devastating example is his dishonest and inept response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which cost more than 190,000 Americans their lives by the middle of September. He has also attacked environmental protections, medical care, and the researchers and public science agencies that help this country prepare for its greatest challenges. That is why we urge you to vote for Joe Biden, who is offering fact-based plans to protect our health, our economy and the environment.


Long article, but we'll worth the read.

The pecans won't start dropping for another 4 to 6 weeks, but the squirrels are already harvesting.

I just hope they leave enough for my holiday baking.
