Make Today A Kawaii Apple Pie Day

Posted on May 13, 2021 by

Apple pie was around long before America even had apple trees. However, eating apple pie all-year-long became so common in America that by the 18th century anything that was considered typically American was described “as American as apple pie.” With today being Apple Pie Day, I felt it was my duty to bake one up (but in a kawaii way, of course). I also added a few of my favorite apple-pie-themed finds!

First, the pie! Traditional American apple pies have a lattice crust, but you can cute-ify the crust using a small, kawaii cookie cutter to make a bespoke design. I chose stars and I am so pleased with the delicious results. Read my full tutorial for all the details.
