A dessert fit for a hobbit!
For those wishing for an autumnal Sabbath Feast dessert, or for those who cannot wait for dessert, here is something that works perfectly for second breakfast or elevensies.
Makes 1 (9-inch) pie
Note: The apple mixture for this recipe is prepared first and set in the refrigerator for 8 hours or overnight.
4 pounds of Granny Smith apples (or a variety of pie-making apples, include both sweet and tart), peeled, cored, and sliced
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
¾ cup plus 3 tablespoons sugar divided
¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, divided
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
¼ teaspoon of ground allspice
1/8 teaspoon salt
Pie crust (see note below)
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon water
Pie Crust Note:
I have used Pillsbury piecrusts, and they work well. But my favorite homemade piecrust recipe is from Sister Pie. I have their cookbook (YUM!), but the recipe is also online if you look up Sister Pie crust recipe.
I discovered this recipe in Victoria Magazine (September/October 2009) and have been using it ever since then every fall, especially for my Thanksgiving Day pie. This recipe can also be found online at https://www.victoriamag.com/deep-dish-apple-pie-recipe/ (this link includes their Sweet Pie Dough).
