Lockhart Pie

Who would say I am not one heck of a good cook?
As usual I was rushed as I was packing our camper for a long weekend at Lockhart Provincial Park. In went the usual camping fare; wieners, hamburgers with all the fixin’s and watermelon for dessert. I had baked an apple pie as a special treat for my Husbands’ birthday and in it went as well.

The days were filled with lazing on the beach and some equally lazy attempts at fishing. Saturday evening came and I decided I would serve up my famous apple pie to our fellow campers. To my horror, when I went to serve it, the pie was raw. I had left the fully baked one at home in the freezer and took the raw one camping with us. Not one to give up easily, I found 2 flat rocks and positioned them in such a way I could place the pie on a slant close enough to the campfire that it would get full benefit of the heat from the fire.

In no time the whole campsite was filled with the aroma of fresh apple/cinnamon pie baking over an open fire. The crust was crispy brown and the filling was sweet and juicy and did it ever go well with a scoop of vanilla ice cream another camper was willing to share with us providing she got a piece of pie in return.
We still talk about the best apple pie I have ever baked and it was done over an open campfire.
