Tuesdays with Dorie: All-American, All-Delicious Apple PieOctober 26, 2010 at 12:01 am | Posted in groups, pies & tarts, sweet things, tuesdays with dorie | 22 Comments
Wasn’t I just whinging about having too much kitchen crap? Know what did I do right after that? I bought a new half-size deep dish pie plate! Makes a lot of sense, right? Oh bother…at least I think it will get good use. In fact, I was able to use it right away for this All-American, All-Delicious Apple Pie that Emily of Sandmuffin picked for TWD.
I haven’t made a double-crust apple pie in a few years, and this one was so good (the “all-delicious” is an apt description) that it actually made me feel a little sad thinking about what I’ve been missing. This was a true deep-dish pie– it was positively stuffed with apples. In mine, I used a random mix of red and green apples that my husband and I proudly picked ourselves during an orchard outing to Warwick with the in-laws a couple of weeks ago (I probably have enough apples in the fridge to make 20 pies!). I also used flour to thicken mine, although the recipe calls for tapioca…I didn’t want to buy any, but an equal amount of AP flour worked just fine.
These last couple of pie-crusted treats have turned me on to a bad little habit…purposefully leaving myself one last mini-slice to have for breakfast with a cup of coffee. Very naughty.
