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.

Replying to
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.
