Homegrown Wild Apple PieYes, I have made apple pie before, I know. This one is special though...becaauuuuse the apples came from my own front yard. Exciting huh.
Anyway, here's a recipe for the apple crisp pie I made:
SIMPLE APPLE CRISP PIE
4-5 cups apple slices, use a smacky-type apple that is a little tart.
1/4 cup lemon juice and 1 Tbs. mayo, whisked together in a large bowl.
1 cup organic cane sugar
1/2 stick butter, melted
1-2 tbs pumpkin pie spice mix or a combo of cinnamon, ginger, allspice, nutmeg etc...
2 frozen Marie Calendar pie shells (I know, I cheated this time to make it easy)
THE OAT CRISP1 1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup flour
1-2 tsp. Penzey's Cake Spice
1 tsp cinnamon
1 stick and 2 tbs butter.
-Preheat oven to 375
-While slicing your apples toss them in the bowl with lemon juice and mayo to prevent browning.
-Toss all apple slices with sugar and pumpkin pie spice mix, let sit for 10 minutes.
-Mix your oat crisp in a separate bowl. Combine oats, brown sugar, flour, and cake spice
-In the microwave, half melt your butter (you want some butter solid but soft and some melted)
-With your hands, mix in butter evenly with dry ingredients, set aside.
-Drizzle the 1/2 stick of melted butter evenly over both pies.
-Crumble Oat mixture evenly over both pies.
-Take them out of the oven and let them cool.
THE END! See you soon ;)
