We are up to our ears in apples here. The local store has some really great deals, and who can pass up a bushel of apples for $2.99??!
There are cons to this pro…like two large bowls of ripe apples. So imagine this- homemade apple cider (you can expect that recipe before Christmas), pancakes and warm apples, apple cake, and apple pie – not that I’m complaining 😉 In fact, I wouldn’t mind making this pie again.
I started with a sweet butter crust. My secret is a tablespoon of icing sugar rather than plain sugar. It’s so fine and adds just the slightest bit of sweetness.
Next up, I let the apples soak up the brandy mixture while I let the crust rest in the refrigerator.
The finished product is a perfect pie – no runny filling and a perfectly sweet and flaky crust. Top it off with homemade ice cream or whipped cream if you so desire.
p.s. Here is a great tutorial for a perfect lattice top.
