Ready In:
1 pie




  • Sift flour with salt into mixing bowl; add almonds.
  • Cut in shortening. Blend egg and water; sprinkle over flour mixture while stirring with fork until dough is just moist enough to hold together.
  • Divide in half; form into balls. Flatten to about 1/2-in. thickness; smooth edges. Roll out one portion on floured surface to a circle 1-1/2 larger than inverted 9-inch pie pan. Fit loosely into pan.
  • Cinna-Apple Filling: Combine sugar, pineapple juice and cinnamon candies. Bring to a boil, for 5 minutes.
  • Prepare apples; coat with flour. Add sugar syrup; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened. Pour into pastry-lined pan.
  • Roll out remaining dough. Cut into strips 3/4 inches wide and crisscross over filling to form lattice over top.
  • Trim and seal ends. Fold bottom crust over to cover; flute.
  • Brush strips with reserved egg white, slightly beaten. Sprinkle with mixture of sugar and cinnamon.
  • Bake in hot oven 425 degrees 10 minutes, then at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes until crust is golden brown.
  • Makes 1 9-inch pie.

    This makes a very pretty and absolutely delicious pie. I had pie dough that I made ahead and had frozen and used it instead of the pie-crust recipe included with the recipe; however, the results were most likely the same. The red hots make such a pretty color that peeks through the lattice top. Great pie for the fall and winter holidays. Thanks for sharing this "oldie but goodie"!

    Oh my, this was truly wonderful & a fitting finale served w/vanilla ice cream for our annual holiday dinner party last nite. I love using cinnamon candies as an ingredient & always bring a supply of them back w/us from the U.S. I have long-admired cooks who turn out *from scratch* pies so easily as that has always been a challenge for me, so I have made only a few in my lifetime & never 1 w/a lattice crust top. You definitely would have ROF & LOL if you could have seen me struggling to get the lattice right. I know I did not succeed very well, but the finished product looked pretty & tasted divine! This is definitely an all-occasion pie (for me at least), but would be special to accompany Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine or Easter meals. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. It is a definite keeper for me & sure to be repeated. :-)
