Tres Bon!! This is a yummy rendition of the standard apple pie. I think it came from a Woman's Day magazine years ago.
- 2 9-inch pie shells
- 6 medium granny smith apples
- 1⁄2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 3 tablespoons butter, room temperature
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄2 cup golden raisin
- 1⁄4 cup sliced almonds
- Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
- Place one crust into a pie pan.
- Sift the brown sugar and the flour together.
- Peel and core the apples, and cut into thin slices.
- Mix the apples and the raisins with the brown sugar/flour and pour into the pie crust, being sure to distribute the apples and raisins evenly within the crust.
- Dot the butter evenly over the apples and sprinkle with the cinnamon.
- Sprinkle the almonds evenly on top.
- Top with the second pie crust, folding the edge under the bottom crust edge.
- Flute and seal the edges.
- Make 3 or 4 small slits in the top crust to allow the steam to escape.
- Bske at 450 degrees for 15 minutes then reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees and bake for 40 to 45 minutes more until golden brown.
This was great tasting. The golden raisins added a unique flavour to the filling. This is definitely a keeper. Thanks for sharing. UPDATE: try using Homemade Pie Crust you'll save some $ and it is real easy. Use the food processor and simply pulse adding 1 tablespoon of water at a time until a dough ball is formed. Just divide in half, flour the rolling pin and surface and roll out your top and bottom crust. You can use the pie dish to check size just go about 1 inch larger on both crusts and you'll be fine...super easy
Loved this recipe. A nice change from the norm with the addition of the raisins and almonds. I will definitely make this again. Thanks for posting!
