Anyway, today I decided to do some baking. I was really craving some apple pie but I wanted to add a twist and make it something fun and very seasonal. This is my own, home-made recipe for Flaky Caramel Apple Pie.
- 5 medium apples
- 2/3rds a cup sugar
- 1/2 a stick melted butter
- Dash of ground nutmeg
- 1/4th a teaspoon of lemon zest
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- A pinch of salt
- Mixing Bowls
- A pie pan
Now this pie is completely made from scratch including the crust, but I used this recipe for that.
Preheat your oven to 425°.
Step 1: Slice and then peel the skin off of all your apples.
Step 2: Seperate the majority of the slices into one bowl and about 1/4th of the apples into another bowl.
Step 3: Add all of your dry and wet ingredients to the main bowl. Stir until fully mixed.
Step 5: Pour your cinnamon-sugar apple mixture into you prepared bottom pie crust. Add 1 caramel apple slice per slice of pie. I had seven so there are seven slices of pie.
|Here's where my pie started to go a bit wrong. My top crust kept crumbling so I kinda just jammed it on there.|
Step 7: Bake for 30-45 minutes, check on it at 30.
I had a lot of fun baking this pie, and it turned out to be super delicious. It didn't even make it a full day...I may have had it for breakfast and dinner and a snack. My inner fat kid is strong.
I don't bake super often but if people like this maybe I'll do it more! I hope everyone is getting into the holiday spirit! We'll see if I have that bad done next week, if not I'm gonna post about my Halloween decor.
Til Next Time,
