How to Bake An Apple Pie and See the World Too.....

 Here's the final day of our quick study of what Geography is.  We sang the Continent Song and colored/labeled a sheet displaying the continents. 

We read How to Bake An Apple Pie and See the World Too...and then baked our own apple pie.

Lydia mixed the crust.
 Joey actually peeled the apples.
We made homemade butter using whipping cream.

We used regular brown sugar to create a more caramel flavor.

We didn't grind our cinnamon though like they did in the book.  We just used plain ground cinnamon.
 
Just before we put it in the oven.


Our finished pie.

Our pie was actually gluten free.  We didn't follow the recipe completely.  Our crust was made with Gluten Free Bisquick, Crisco Butter Shortening and small amount of ice water.  The filling was 5 apples and a layer of cinnamon, fresh whipped butter and brown sugar.  We covered it with the same Gluten Free Bisquick crust.  Baked it at 400 degrees for about 35 minutes. 

It was very tasty...MMMMmmmm.  What a way to end the week of geography study.  Next week we will be off to China!
