My Grandparents were over the other night for dinner and I made a really yummy apple pie with these super fresh Mac's I picked up at the Market. I've always been a bit wary of adding too much cinnamon to my pies but accidentally dumped way more on my apples than I normally would and it tasted amazing. From now on I'm adding twice as much cinnamon as I think I need! I've used a homemade pastry recipe but I can't share it with you as it's a family secret. This recipe from Martha Stewart should do the trick though.
Pie crust - top and bottom
5-6 apples, preferably McIntosh's
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
3 tbsp cornstarch
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Peel and core your apples. Cut them into slices about a 1/4 of an inch thick. Toss the apples with the sugar, cinnamon and cornstarch.
Place the sliced apple mixture into the prepared pie crust and place the top crust over, pinching the edges of the pie together to make a seal. Egg wash the top of the pie and sprinkle with coarse sugar if desired.
Bake for approximately 1 hour, or until the crust is golden brown and the liquid inside the pie has thickened and is bubbling.
