Jeanne again …
Up until this morning, I was assigned to make an apple pie for our family dinner tomorrow.
But then I heard an article on NPR … it was a 100 year birthday tribute to Julia Childs,’ featuring her Thanksgiving Dinner. I started salivating at the sound of this dessert. So I had to go ahead and find it online.
I had all the ingredients.
Click HERE if you’re salivating now, too, and want Julia’s original recipe!
NOTE: Or click HERE for the version I made … because I made a few changes: I used less sugar. I didn’t put the glaze through a sieve, or add sugar to the glaze. I used more lemon. I didn’t pre-bake the shell. In the past, I’ve found that if it’s thin enough, and if it’s chilled enough (I put it in the freezer while I prepped the inside of this beauty), there’s no need to pre-bake. But I guess the real test will be tomorrow when we cut into it 🙂
