Autumn = Apples and that equation gives you opportunities
to make some great dishes using apples. They are in season
right now and you'll find low prices at the grocery store if
you don't have access to an apple orchard. Here's my recipe
for apple pie the easy way. It is delish!!!
1 refrigerated pie crust brought to room temperature
3 large apples. I used 2 Granny Smith and 1 Honeycrisp,
peeled and sliced thin
1 can (21ounces) apple pie filling
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3 Tbsp. sugar
2 Tbsp. cold butter diced
1 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
6-7 Tbsp. very cold butter diced
1/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Place piecrust into pie dish and press into place
and put into refrigerator.
Mix together the ingredients gently till combined.
Put into pie crust and place back into refrigerator.
Place a baking sheet in the oven to preheat.
Mix together topping ingredients. Using a pastry
blender (or food processor) mix together until
Take pie from refrigerator and place topping
evenly over the apples.
Place the pie on the preheated baking sheet (add
parchment paper) and bake 45 minutes. Cover
the top after 15-20 minutes to prevent the top
from over browning.
Let set up for at least a few hours, but may be served
Top with ice cream or whipped cream.
Refrigerate leftovers and reheat if desired.
This is really very easy to pull together and just
tastes so good.
