A tribute to Steve Jobs and a Apple Pie

Everywhere i look around my home, i see an apple product. Ipad, Iphone, Ipod, Apple Tv, Air port Utility, Mac Book, it's everywhere! We still have our old Ipods(saved in a box) from like 8 years ago that were huge!!! Went thru every generation Iphone there is! I use my Mac Book for all my work, my Iphone takes all my blog pictures and the husband uses his Power Book and Ipad for his...We wouldn't know how to live without these products. And all thanks to an amazing, smart man, Steve Jobs!
Steve Jobs fought a terrible disease with amazing strength until this past wednesday when the disease won and took down a man that will be remembered forever, that changed this world, to a better one, must i add. And he sure put a "ding" in the universe like he wanted to!
Today I bake an apple pie in his honor to thank him for all his hard work!
A few of his quotes:
"And no, we don't know where it will lead. We just know there's something much bigger than any of us here."
"Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn't matter to me. Going to bed at night saying we've done something wonderful, that's what matters to me."
"Design is a funny word. Some people think design means how it looks. But of course, if you dig deeper, it's really how it works." 
"For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: 'If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?' And whenever the answer has been 'No' for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something." 

"I want to put a ding in the universe." 

"My favorite things in life don't cost any money. It's really clear that the most precious resource we all have is time." 


Traditional Apple Pie , recipe from food network's website by Tyler Florence




Ingredients



  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup shortening (recommended: Crisco)
  • Ice water
  • Filling, recipe follows
  • Serving suggestion: warm with vanilla ice-cream

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
In a medium-mixing bowl cut the shortening and salt into the flour by hand or with a pastry blender hands until it's the texture of cornmeal. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of ice water over the mixture and mix just until the dough is moistened. Repeat by adding 6 to 8 tablespoons water (one at a time) until all the dough is just moist. Take care not to over mix.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Divide the dough in half and roll into a ball. Roll 1 ball into a circle to fit a 9 to 10-inch pie plate. To transfer the pastry to the pie plate, wrap it around a rolling pin and ease it into the pie plate. Be careful not to stretch the pastry. Trim it even with the edges of the pie plate. Add the apple filling into the pastry lined pie plate. Make sure they are laying flat. Cut butter into small pieces and put on top of the filling.
Roll the remaining pastry into a 12-inch circle. Place on top of the filling. Trim off 1-inch beyond the edge of the pie plate. Crimp the edges as desired. Cut slits to allow steam to escape when baking. Sprinkle a little sugar and cinnamon over the pie.
Cover the edges with foil to prevent over browning. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for another 20 to 25 minutes, or until it is golden brown. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.

Filling:

  • 1/2 cup to 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 6 to 7 cups apples cut into thin slices (recommended: Green Golden and Jonathans)
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons butter
In a medium bowl combine the apples, with the brown and white sugar. Add flour, cinnamon and continue mixing until they are well coated
