Story - Cooking

Cooking has become a popular activity for both adults and children. Many children enjoy learning to cook at an early age. Now, there are many shows to watch on television about cooking. There are many items you need to use in a kitchen to make a pie.

To make an apple pie, you will need to take a pie crust. First, use a peeler to peel several green apples. Then cut the apples into cubes. Place the cut apples in a strainer. Wash them. Next, mix some sugar, flour and cinnamon with the apples in a mixing bowl. Mix them with a wooden spoon until it is well mixed. Pour the mixture into the pie crust. Bake the pie for 30-45 minutes.

After the pie is baked, you may want to make cream for the topping of the pie. You will need to use a whisk and strongly mix heavy cream with sugar. It will form stiff peaks. Scoop the whipped cream onto the piece. Then use a spatula to serve the pie.
