Just a quick note to say that through years of research of my friends and I, we have irrefutable and conclusive evidence to be certain of where the best apple pies in the world can be obtained.
And the winner is......
Terigal Pie Shop, the Esplanade, Terigal. Open nearly 24 hours.
Now this is our local, post surfing pie shop, but we have eaten apple pies in over 10 countries and in more than 40 places in Australia (including the controversial 'frozen pie') but have not found anything that comes close.
* The apples are fresh.
* No skin
* Apple is firm but not hard.
* Right balance of cinnamon.
* Dusted with sugar on top.
* The crust is not too thick, but thick enough that you can eat it with one hand and it doesn't collapse (unless you are a rookie apple pie eater...).
