Apple Pie

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
  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Prepare base pie crust as per package instructions.
  3. In a saucepan over medium heat, mix together sugar, vanilla, cream and brown sugar. Cook for 7 to 8 minutes, then set aside.
  4. 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.
  5. Pour the apple mixture over the base pie crust. Add reserved sugar mixture.
  6. Cover with second pie crust and seal edges. Use the beaten egg to egg wash the pie crust.
  7. 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.
