Thanksgiving Dessert-Apple Pie
Apple Pie is a classic dessert that is served during Thanksgiving dinner next to pumpkin pie. here is my delicious and very easy to make crust-less apple pie video and recipe, that was published before on my blog, but I thought it is appropriate to publish it again for the holiday. Enjoy! This is a very simple Deep Dish Apple Pie recipe with NO bottom crust, only a layer of top crust that adds so much flavor, crunch and beauty to this desert. This quantity will serve four people, with second helpings! PIE FILLING INGREDIENTS: -8 sliced apples -Lemon Juice -1/2 c. sugar -1 teaspoon cinnamon -4 tablespoon butter -1/2 a cup raisins or/and walnuts (optional) TOP CRUST INGREDIENTS: -1/2 cup brown sugar -1 cup flour -1 teaspoon cinnamon -1/2 cup melted butter Direction Peel and slice apples. I use whatever apples available. Add lemon juice as you slice the apples to prevent their discoloration. Mix sugar(brown, white or both) with Cinnamon, mix into the apples well. Add butter on top of the apple mix. Cover with Aluminum foil. Cook on the stove top covered for 35 minutes or until all liquid is absorbed. DO NOT ADD ANY LIQUIDS such as water. Top crust : Mix melted butter and sugar. Add flour until the mix forms crumbs like consistency. Sprinkle your crumbly mix on top of the cooked apples. Broil the top for few minutes until it is browned nicely. Serve hot with Vanilla Ice Cream. Simply Delicious!!
