I found this recipe in the French language Metro newspaper.
- 2 pie crusts
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/3 cup 35% cream
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 6 apples, peeled and sliced
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 tablespoon flour
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1 egg, beaten
- Preheat oven to 375F.
- Prepare base pie crust as per package instructions.
- In a saucepan over medium heat, mix together sugar, vanilla, cream and brown sugar. Cook for 7 to 8 minutes, then set aside.
- In a large saucepan, melt the butter of medium high heat. Add the cinnamon, nutmeg, flour and cornstarch. Add apples. Mix until apples are covered, but not too soft.
- Pour the apple mixture over the base pie crust. Add reserved sugar mixture.
- Cover with second pie crust and seal edges. Use the beaten egg to egg wash the pie crust.
- Bake 40-55 min or until golden (ours needed just under 40 minutes).
Verdict: This was a tasty pie, but not the best apple pie I’ve ever had. It didn’t really have a distinctive taste that would set it apart from other pies.
