Homemade Irishstyle Apple & Clove Pie
I been making apple pie since I was ten years old helping my grandmother and my own mum in the kitchen, in some families it's a secret they would not tell any one outside the family.
There is nothing nicer than walking into a traditional Irish kitchen and smelling the wonderful aroma of freshly baking apple pie.
Except that is a slice of apple pie straight out of the oven with a dollop of freshly whipped cream. Hope you like and enjoy...and shooosh!! it's a secret.....
