Apple Pie ala Foamheart

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 

What did I do today?

 

 

Friend brought over some of the most beautiful 'Honey Crisp' Apples I ever saw!

 

Ingredients:

4 or 5 Granny Smith apples peeled & wedged
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cap maple extract
  eggwash
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
2 tablespoon cornstarch
1 9 inch pie shell
  Preheat oven 400 Degrees

Directions:


Combine apples, cinn, sugar, maple extract, and spice.

 

Place in pie crust top with crust. Paint with eggwash. Slit vents. dust with cinnamin and white sugar.

 

Bake for approx 60 to 70 mins.

 

Notes:

You can also add raisins and/ or whole pecans also.If you have never tried, you diffinately need to try adding crumbled bacon too!!!! ZOMG!!

 

I usually mix up my apples but this time I went all honey crisps, It has loads and loads of juice....LOL

 

Pie crust, use your own or buy them, The last ten years of her life, my Mom bought 'em. She said no one even noticed a good pie crust anymore. I make my own and I bet you'd notice!

 

Besides if you don't make your own, you don't get the scraps! Come on how many here had Moms that made these?If you were good while she was making the pies, and were very very lucky she'd have a whole cookie sheet full without a home.

 

 

Its that time of year..... I am anxiously anticipating the pie pumpkins!!

LOL.... people get pretty strange about their pie crusts....

 

I was talking with Disco and he told me if ya put butter in a pie crust its called cookies! LOL

 

Case, no I have not. I use 1/2 butter for flavor and 1/2 lard for tender/flaky. I always bought Phillsbury until one day I thru necessity had to try making one and after that it was just a challange! LOL

 

IMHO Crust really does make or break even the best pie filling. Its why we see Apple brown betty's out there...LOL J/K J/K

 

You gonna get me in trouble.

 

Edit

I had to look it up, I have duck fat! but that stuff is like gold and I hord it!

Give schmaltz a try, especially if you're making a pot pie of some sorts. If you want some really awesome oatmeal or chocolate chip cookies try schmaltz in place of the fat required, just saying!

Ah, Foam, you almost brought a tear to my eye. My mother rarely made pie but when she did she would cook the trimmings like that. Great looking pie but many thanks for the memory.

Great looking pie Kevin!! And Case, I can't say I've ever tried chicken fat in pie crust. I just rendered some this evening so maybe I'll give it a whirl. I usually go with lard and butter. I must say, however, White Lily flour makes the best damn pie crust I've ever tasted. I didn't think the flour mattered until I tried White Lily.

And Disco, my mom did the same thing. She for some reason called them tootsie rolls. Good memory.

I understand, we didn't get sweets much. I was amazed the first time I saw a layer cake at a church coverd dish supper. I had never seen one all stacked up like that! If Mom made one, it was on a cookie sheet. Pies were for the hoildays.

 

And thank you, the pie was mighty tastee, but this time the crust was the star. I am patiently waiting till some day when I get a great pie and a great filling at the same time...LOL

Thank you thank you. You know, I would have not thought of a pie had I not been given the apples. BTW they are not local they are bought. I just never think  of a apple pie. And I don't know why cause this one is plain simple easy and over the top! Maybe it was the apples, more likely that crust!

Thank you

 

You know, funny you say that, I meant to, to try it. I forgot and fell into old habits. Just lay the cut-offs on a cookie sheet and dust with cinnamin and sugar, or nutmey if ya don't like cinnamin.
