{ Apple Pie with a slight twist }

It's the weekend !! It's been rather cool here the last few days & I'm perfectly okay with that!! Cool weather means Fall has  { in my book } officially started! It was quite chilly again today so I decided to make a delicious apple pie! This apple pie is extra sweet / gooey & made with a 'secret' ingredient! Keep reading & find out  what the simple secret is ;) !

 



Recipe

  • 1-2 bags Apple of your choice { I used Paula Red}
  • half stick Butter
  • 4-5 tablespoons Cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons Vanilla Extract
  • 2 tablespoons Sugar
  • 3 tablespoons HONEY<~~
  • 1 pinch Nutmeg 
  • Crust of choice
* Garnish with some thick vanilla ice cream & a tall glass of milk!  *

After you've peeled & diced or halved the apples mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl. Make sure all of the apples are coated nicely with the mixture. If the apples seem to need more just add an adjusted amount of each ingredient to the bowl. Now set your mixture aside for a few minutes & get your dish ready with the pie crust. I used store bought , because homemade is a bit to flaky & thin for this hearty apple pie recipe. You can use any crust { store bought or homemade }. Line the dish & fill the pie just over the rim of the dish!  Add a few butter squares  around the dish & then cover your pie & pinch edges closed! Last ,but not least put a few slits in the top of your pie & sprinkle some cinnamon on top. Bake on 350 until golden brown!



Side Note: I always use a cooking tray to set my dish on while baking just in case some pie filling drips out !!
