Roasting Pan Apple Pie – Cookie Madness
It’s about time for a “favorite apple pie” replace, so right here it’s — Roasting Pan Apple Pie.
The identify comes from the truth the apples are temporarily broiled in a roasting pan, then the entire different components are blended proper in the similar roasting pan.
I’ve already made this one thrice this week, and Sue used to be sort sufficient to check it in her kitchen as smartly, so it’s an attractive cast recipe should you’re searching for a elementary apple pie.
Here are a couple of fast notes:
Shallower Pie Pan — I’ve been the usage of steel pie pans from Dollar Tree in recent years. They are shallower than my standard Pyrex so the filling piles upper. Also, the crust turns out to brown completely. Best of all, they’re best $1 so you’ll give away entire pies and the recipient may have their very own new pie pan.
Buttery, flaky crust — Use your favourite. The one beneath requires most commonly butter and somewhat shortening and is beautiful dependable.
Apple Type — Granny Smiths for probably the most section, plus a couple of a laugh sweeter apples like Opal, Fuji and/or Honeycrisp.
Filling — Broiling the apples to melt and unencumber juices helps to keep the pie from sinking such a lot below the highest crust. Plus the apples don’t get too delicate, which is an issue with some cooked fillings. For Roasting Pan Apple Pie you simply put the apples in a roasting pan below the broiler for six to eight mins, then combine the apples and the entirety else all in combination within the roasting pan.
Flavor — Just some cinnamon and a great deal of lemon juice works for me. I additionally use 2 tablespoons of butter to tie all of it in combination.
Thicker — There are extra fascinating thickeners, however all function flour is handy and works simply effective.
By the best way, that is an offshoot of my outdated favourite, Broiled Apple Pie. The Broiled Apple Pie may be superb, however calls for lots extra sugar.
