ENGLISH APPLE PIE
Summer desserts beg to be cool and easy to prepare. The less time spent fussing in the kitchen, means the more time you have to spend the longer days outdoors with family and friends. The perfect compliment to a traditional summer barbecue is a traditional summer dessert: apple pie.
Start with fresh, locally grown apples that hold their shape when cooked. Golden Delicious apples are an excellent, sweet choice. Mix them with tart Granny Smith apples and you'll have the makings of a delicious pie.
