Finally it’s that time of year when the sweaters come out, the fall candles are lit, and the apple and pumpkin picking begins! I must say one of my favorite things to do is eat haha, so when my favorite seasons fall/winter come around I’m all about cooking up my favorite meals and treats! Well, it was a boring Sunday night of studying for my History test for me until I saw my sister playing with a bag of apples from Costco because i haven’t made it apple picking quiet yet:(. I decided to make an apple pie before she ruined them all haha. My favorite apple pie recipe is by Martha Stewart and that is:Ingredients:
-2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
-Pate Brisee (Pie Dough)
-12 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
-3/4 cup sugar, plus additional for pie top
-Zest and juice of 1 lemon
-1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
-1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
-Pinch ground cloves
-2 tablespoons unsalted butter
-1 large egg, beaten
1.Heat oven to 375 degrees. On a lightly floured surface, roll out pate brisee into two 1/8-inch-thick circles to a diameter slightly larger than that of an 11-inch plate. Press one pastry circle into the pie plate. Place the other circle on waxed paper, and cover with plastic wrap. Chill all pastry until firm, about 30 minutes.
2.In a large bowl, combine apples, sugar, lemon zest and juice, spices, and flour. Toss well. Spoon apples into pie pan. Dot with butter, and cover with remaining pastry circle. Cut several steam vents across top. Seal by crimping edges as desired. Brush with beaten egg, and sprinkle with additional sugar.
3.Bake until crust is brown and juices are bubbling, about 1 hour. Let cool on wire rack before serving.
It makes your home smell amazing and tastes so good! I can’t wait to make a pumpkin pie, caramel apples, christmas sugar cookies and much more this year!
Hope you all have a great year filled with treats and good eats!
