Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry.
I don't make this style of pie often, but it's nice once in a while. I used less than a half cup of sugar, and just a soupçon (how many times do you get to use that word?) of spice: cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg. Another word I could use to indicate a small amount would be une pointe of spice.
We ate about a third of it. More for today!
Too much cinnamon and the pie would become, as one of my friends calls it, une tarte à la canelle (a cinnamon pie). I like the spices, but I also like to taste the apples.
Note from the front office: I hate typos. I make lots of them and I frequently manage to publish my post before I find them all. Today I noticed two spelling mistakes more than an hour after publishing. How embarrassing! They're fixed now.
