Mother's day!

Yesterday while going around with my boyfriend on my white Vespa I bought this beautiful flowerpot for my mama. There was a desk in a lot of squares around the town, each plant corresponded to a donation agains cancer! a very good cause! gift and donation...two things in one! 
The only little problem to transport it up till home! there were 12 km to do and only a Vespa as mean of transportation! I hoped for all way not to arrive home without flowers on the plant! 
As you can see...everything gone right!
This wasn't the only gift for my mom, this morning a woke up very early to make an Apple Pie, and let me tell you, it was delicious!

Here the recipe:

1) ingredients for the crust:
- iced water - 50ml
- butter - 150 grams
- flour "00" - 300 grams
- a pinch of salt

2) ingredients for the filling:
- 6 medium-sized apples
- 1 tablespoon of flour
- granulated sugar - 100 grams
- 1/2 lemon juice and some skin
- a pinch of salt 
- a bit of nutmeg

Put together the first ingredients to make the base of the pie, mix together and create a consistent dough. Put it in a pellicle and let it for 30 min into the fridge. In the meantime peel the apples and cut them, mix the pieces together with the flour, lemon, sugar, salt and nutmeg. When the dough is ready, use more then half to make the base of the baking pan, put the filler inside and then cover with the remaining dough. Use a fork to make some holes. Put everything into the oven:
- 20 minutes at 200°C
- 20 min at 180°C
- and finally other 20 min at 170°C.
Complete with some sugar on the top!

here some pics!
Hope you had a beautiful mom's day!!!
