Worm Burner and I made this lovely apple pie. He was in charge of the apple picking, ingredient measuring, and crust pinching. I manned (womaned?) the rolling pin and the apple slicer. Together we made quite a team, not to mention dessert.
There's a lot of literacy skills and math that goes into an apple pie. That giant cookbook was definitely not written at the fourth grade reading level, and the difference between a tablespoon (big T) and a teaspoon (small t) is substantial when you're talking about nutmeg. But Worm Burner managed to plow through it and the result was a slice of fall happiness.
Worm Burner is as skilled with the power tools as he is in the kitchen. I'm thinking he's going to make some lucky girl a fine husband some day.
