English apple pie
Thanksgiving with friends and their children and dogs was wonderful. When I arrived the two dogs, who had just met, were racing after each other in the cold. I brought an apple pie, the result of combining recipes from Englishwomen Delia Smith and Val Ivey. It was pronounced delicious. As usual Delia offered expert practical advice from her Complete Illustrated Cookery Course, while Val provided the crucial tablespoon of vinegar in the crust.
Correction: I've just learned that the dogs have been pals for five years.
