My friend Kevin shares his apple pie recipe. It is notable that as a New Yorker he has access to an abundance of farm fresh apples in the city and is a short drive away from any number of pick your own orchards. Try to stay away from Commie Apples, like those pictured here, as they will lack the flavor, texture and entrepreneurial spirit of good old freedom loving American Apples.

“It’s easy. Peel and slice all different kinds of apples from the farmer’s market. Toss with 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/4 cup white sugar and two tablespoons of “apple pie spice mix” that you found by chance at a spice and tea shop when you were in Philly for a wedding. Then pile the apple slices as high as possible in a pie shell. This is actually kind of fun and lets you get in touch with your inner child. When the apples start to slide off the pile and onto the floor, you know you’re done. Cover with a second pie crust and baste this mountain of raw goodness with milk and sprinkle with sugar. Then bake for 10 minutes at 450 degrees, then another 50 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove from oven, let it cool just to the point where you don’t burn your tongue, top with ginger ice cream and enjoy!”
