Lexington

            The Battles of Lexington and Concord fought on April 19, 1775, kicked off the American Revolutionary War. Now known as the "Horse Capital of the World", Lexington became a city of Kentucky in 1792 when Kentucky became a state.

            The scent of the Lexington candle is Apple and Bourbon in which the city is known for. You can’t go wrong when you choose an apple pie. Below will be a recipe for an apple pie

Southern Living Granny Smith Apple Pie

Ingredients:

  • 5 (15 ounce) packages refrigerated pie crusts, divided
  • 6 medium granny smith apples, peeled and sliced (about 6 cups)
  • 1 1⁄2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3⁄4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1⁄2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1⁄3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Directions:

  • Unroll and stack 2 pie crusts; gently roll or press together.
  • Fit pastry into a 9 inch deep-dish pie plate.
  • Toss together apples and lemon juice in a large bowl.
  • Combine brown sugar, granulated sugar, and next 3 ingredients; sprinkle over apple mixture and toss to coat.
  • Spoon into prepared pie crust.
  • Unroll and place remaining pie crust over filling.
  • Fold edges under, and crimp; cut slits in top for steam to escape. (I also cover the crimped edges of my crust with foil to prevent burning).
  • Bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes. Reduce temperature to 350 degrees, and bake for 30-35 minutes.

Hope you enjoy.
