Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I did a different take on a classic, apple pie this week. It’s pretty basic, but super yummy. I used McIntosh apples, but feel free to use any baking apple. (Here is a list of all the different types) Don’t use eating apples, those have too much water content and will turn your pie into mush. Instead of the traditional lattice pattern on top, I sprinkled it with oatmeal and brown sugar. The open pie top, gives it more of a rustic feel, and the apples get their moment to shine.
1 pastry dough
2 lbs McIntosh apples (or any baking apples)
2 tsp lemon juice
½ cup white sugar
2 tbsp cinnamon
1 tbsp nutmeg
¼ cup all purpose flour
4 tbsp butter, melted
3 tbsp oatmeal
3 tbsp brown sugar
- Roll out the pastry dough into a circle, and place in pie dish. Refrigerate while you make the filling.
- Pre heat the oven to 450 F
- Peel and de-core the apples. Slice as thinly as you can.
- In a large bowl add the sliced apples, lemon juice, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, flour, and butter. Mix until all the apples are fully coated.
- Place the filling in the pie dish and sprinkle the oatmeal and brown sugar all over the top.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes
- Serve and enjoy!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
