French Apple Pie

I didn’t know what the Hunger Games was up until a month ago. I sat down and read all three books in a week. I am a fan. So while I fed on every piece of the Hunger Games that I could google, I found this: 

I am sure I am not alone when I say Jennifer Lawrence is freakin’ hilarious. Once I got past the adorable cast, I couldn’t help but drool over the mean french apple pie. The minute I heard him say it, I knew I had to bake it. They are right, the French really love butter. It is the crumble on the tart that melts your heart away. . .

Josh: “Brown sugar and butter crumbles..”
Elizabeth: “yes. yes.”
Jennifer: “Ahh oui”

Katniss Everdeen Braid – Hunger Games [Tutorial with Pictures]
