Apple Pie (шарлотка-из-яблок)

My Mom gave us a simple and nutritious recipe on how to make an apple pie (or-шарлотка-из-яблок).  First, we needed to slice some apples, so we used our Apple Slicing Activity.  


DSC_0083-001This apple slicer is a good quality slicer, but it was hard for Julia to slice the apple all the way down. She would have to do a lot of wiggling and apply a fair amount of pressure to push it all the way down. The apples were pretty crisp and hard (:
