When it comes to dessert, there’s lots to love. And we endorse French pastries, Italian cookies, and Japanese mochi. But has anything, anywhere bested fresh-baked apple pie topped with a scoop of ice cream? No.
A pie-making day sets up the ideal all-hands kitchen project. From crimping crust to peeling apples, from slicing to stirring, this process can give just about everyone a job. Straightforward lessons on safety—peeler handling, knife skills—contrast with the sloppy-gloppy fun of mixing up flavors. Time in the oven demonstrates the essentials of baking (and patience).
And like all good things, it finishes with ice cream. Our video, made with our friends at Tillamook, shows how it’s done.
