Apple Pie Perfect
We welcome Ken Haedrich to the Apple Journal virtual kitchen

Greetings apple pie bakers. Apple Journal is pleased to present a series of articles about apple pie written by my friend Ken Haedrich. Perhaps you know Ken from his articles in magazines such as Better Homes and Gardens and Bon Appetit. Ken loves apple pie, enough to have written an entire book on the subject, Apple Pie Perfect (Harvard Common Press.) It is, as far as I know, the first and only book devoted entirely to this favorite American dessert. (Yours truly contributed a special section to Apple Pie Perfect, on antique apple varieties.) Ken will be adding new stories and recipes to this site each month, so check back here often for his latest. Meanwhile, I suggest you visit his web site - applepieperfect.com - where you can find out more about Ken's books, order copies of Apple Pie Perfect, and read his tips for making the perfect apple pie.
