You Want Pies With That?'s theme this month is Pies as a Fashion Statement. My Answer? Warm Sweater Apple Pie. It's getting cold around here and its starting to be sweater weather. So I thought, how about a pie that looks like a sweater? Not with arms and all, but looks like it has been knit. And what's more cozy and fall-like then apple pie? This was a big "concept pie" for me that didn't necessarily come through in the execution, but oh well, it happens.
I enlisted the help of my sister-in-law, who is a master knitter (shameless plug for her etsy shop, yarnbeast.) We actually tried to put the dough on needles and knit it, but, well, dough is not a fiber and does not like to be knit. This is as close as we came. It looks like a sweater I might make myself, totally imperfect, full of bumps and dropped stitches. The edge looked like a nice ribbed cuff before it went in the oven, but dough is a fickle creature.
