I love the week of Thanksgiving because it turns almost every American into a Foodie! People were buzzing around the grocery store today, overhearing several people talking about what they are going to bring to the table this Thursday. It all sounded delicious!
I am very pumped to be bringing stuffing, homemade cranberry sauce, sweet potatoes, and apple pie to my new extended family’s table this Thanksgiving. Because it is my first Thanksgiving with them, I wanted to bring a wow factor. Pie. People can be wowed by pie.
I found a berry pie on Pinterest [ http://pinterest.com/pin/185210603395127508/ ], modified it for an apple pie, and had our friends Dan and Beth be guinea pigs. It was a hit!
Inside Out Apple Pie
- 3 cups granny smith apples, cut into small pieces (skin off)
- 1 prepared round of pie dough
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 Tablespoons Cinnamon
- 1 egg white
- 4 tablespoons butter
- Sparkling sugar (or granulated if you prefer)
Place the round of pie dough on a parchment lined baking sheet. Wash and dry the apples, then cut them into very small pieces. In a medium bowl, toss apple pieces with cinnamon, sugar, and 3 tablespoons of the butter. Place apple mixture in the center of your pie dough. Carefully fold the edges of the pie dough around the berries, pinching it together to keep the edges in place, being careful not to tear the dough. Whisk the egg white into the remaining bit of butter. With a basting brush, spread the butter/egg mixture all over the edges of the pie crust, then sprinkle with sparkling sugar.
Bake in an oven preheated to 425 degrees for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown.
Whatever you are bringing to the table this Thanksgiving, I wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving. 🙂
