In the video below, A&M are joined by legendary baker and cookbook author Dorie Greenspan. As they bake Midge's Brown Butter and Cheddar Apple Pie, Dorie shares loads of expert baking tips. Our favorite moment: when she validates our go-to dough-rolling method (between two floured sheets of plastic wrap) -- it's how Jacques Pépin rolls too!

This week's videos were once again shot and edited by filmmaker Elena Parker. For more of the marvelous Dorie Greenspan, follow her on Twitter @doriegreenspan and pick up a copy of her just-released cookbook Around My French Table.

For those who want to try making their very own apple pie, it would be best to be guided by a video or comprehensible recipe blog so that you can so it right. Baking at home can also become a social activity for family and friends, making the entire experience more memorable.

I just loved these videos with A&M and Dorie Greenspan. Great interaction and wonderful techniques.

My 13-year-old son and I are going to make this pie together. Coincidently, he told me last weekend he wants to make a homemade crust "with cheese in it" and that he's never had apple pie (!!!!!). So this recipe is perfect. He loves apples, so we're going to go to the market, choose the apples and the rest of the ingredients and make a fun day of it.

I'm switching over to plastic for rolling out crusts as of today. Thanks for being so honest about being a pastry "winger," Amanda. Even after years and years of cooking, crusts still make me nervous.

How long did you wait before slicing the pie, once baked? What is the recommended minimum time for allowing this pie to sit before cutting? Thank you. ;o)

I am having trouble hearing all the comments. Is it me? Or can your videographer improve the audio?

What a fun video! I've been reading AMFT nonstop for a week now. I love the technique and running commentary from everyone!

Two questions: Do you need to seal the two crusts? Also would have loved to have seen the first slice. I am working on perfecting pie techniques and find recipes vary tremendously in accuracy re: thickeners (type and amount). I realize that fruit varies, too, but for many of us this is as critical as the crust.

Thanks.

Hi Midge...how exciting it is to watch A&M with Dorie Greenspan making our pies! I could smell the browned butter through my computer!
