Apple Pie


I prefer pumpkin pie on thanksgiving, but I always like a small dollop of apple pie on my plate for good measure.  You will note that these are mini pies.  Baking times/instructions are virtually the same for both, you just have to cut the pie crust to fill the jars (short, half-pint jars). 

I played around with some recipes and this is what I got (it was good!!):


Preheat oven to 375.

First, make the crust. Roll half of it and place on the bottom of pie pan. Brush edges with egg wash.

Chop the apples into ½ inch slices.  Toss with brown sugar, corn starch, lemon, and spices.  Mix in the heavy cream and vanilla.  Cover with the other half of the pie crust, and cut slits on top to allow steam to escape. Brush with egg wash and sprinkle with sugar. Bake for about one hour, until the crust is browned and the filling is bubbly. Allow to cool and serve a la mode!!
