Starting slow with an easy pie that always tastes good. Or at least, it's hard to mess up and usually pleases a crowd: Apple Pie (with a twist of course). Leslie and I stopped by the local market for some ingredients. With not much time before our scheduled dinner party, we opted for the pre-made Pillsbury Crust. Yeah, yeah, yeah.
8 Apples (assorted: fuji & green apple)
1 Tablespoon Cinnamon
1 Teaspoon Organic Vanilla Extract
1 Tablespoon Honey
1 Tablespoon Butter
1 Tablespoon Flour
- Wash, peel and cut the Apples into cubes. Place in a large bowl.
- Stir in the Cinnamon, Honey, and Vanilla.
- Rub a stick of Butter on a glass pie dish, coating the bottom and sides. Take a tablespoon of Flour and cover the butter with it. Discard the excess.
- Put the bottom Pie Crust into a glass pie dish.
- Pour contents into the pie dish, on top of the dough.
- Chop the Butter into little cubes and scatter them over the contents.
- Put the top Pie Crust on. Ventilate with a neat design of your choice.
- Scramble an Egg in a small bowl. Coat the top of the crust with the egg batter.
- Cover the edges of the Pie with aluminum foil to prevent burning.
- Bake at 400 F for 20 minutes; decrease heat to 350 and bake for another 35 to 45 minutes (until golden brown and contents are bubbling out).
