"The Forbidden Apple" Pie begins.
The Spiteri Apple Tree, planted in 1996
Paula Dean closely monitored the making of this crust, with chunks of frozen cubed butter, teaspoons of cold water, flour, sugar, salt, and good ole' Southern love.
Paula actually let my husband knead the dough, because of his rather picturesque model hands.
Again, I am not sure if this shot is more of the apples or of my husbands beautiful hands.
After a brief introduction, the apples and dough meet and get married.
Once again, as Paula was holding my husbands wrist, Nick and Paula detail the outer edge of pie.
Before leaving San Bruno, Paula took this last picture of Nick. Paula insisted on having doubles made of this picture, since she had to catch her flight back to the Food Network.
