RECIPE BACKSTORY
This is the first pie in my pie a week challenge. This is the standard apple pie recipe many people grew up with, my grandmother always added a pad of butter before putting her masterpiece in the oven. On this particular one, I wanted to make the vent like the Apple logo because the Macs are taking over our house. I am aware I flipped it. :P
