*Happy 4th of July* ALL of you :) Let's celebrate this wonderful Day...I remember on the 1st of July 2001 we moved to the States, we got stationed in Colorado Springs, CO...since 15th of December 2005 I'm a proud American Citizen...I love this country with all my heart. I saw on TV that the Statue of Liberty will be open to the public again...the 1st time after September 11th, 2001...I wish I could be there...maybe one day :)

Tomorrow,we are blocking our Street off and have a BBQ with our Friends/Neighbours :)

Here is a 4th of July Apple Pie Recipe

2 cups White flour
1 teaspoon Salt
2/3 cup Shortening
5 tablespoons Ice-cold water
8 Apples, pared and cored
2 tablespoons White flour
1 cup Sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons butter


Preheat oven to 400degrees F.
Mix together the flour, salt, and shortening until crumbly. Add the water and mix well.
Thinly slice the apples.
In a medium-sized bowl, combine the flour, sugar, and cinnamon; add the apple slices and mix well.
Take 1/2 of the pastry and roll flat; place pastry in a 9" pie plate.
Fill with the apple mixture and dot with butter.
Take the remaining pastry dough and roll flat.
Place pastry on top of pie; crimp along the edges to seal.
Take a knife and cut slits into top of pastry to allow steam to escape. Bake for about 50 minutes or until crust is golden.

Let cool and serve pie with a dollop of whipped cream or ice cream.
