This was the best pie on the PLANET, people, and Dawg and I made it from SCRATCH!
For any extra filling or crust dough you notice you have, set it aside to make mini pies or apple pie empanadas another time. Today you’re making the most delicious cinnamon apple empanada crust pie.
6 Macintosh apples, peeled and sliced
6 Granny Smith apples, peeled and sliced
1.5 cups firmly packed light brown sugar
3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
6 tablespoons water
3 tablespoon butter
Place butter and water into pan, heat on low. Add rest of ingredients, stirring to coat apples. Continue heating on low for 6 minutes, stirring often. Let rest.
4.5 cups flour
1.5 cups milk
3 tablespoon sugar
1 cup melted butter
Add all ingredients in bowl, mix on medium until combined and a firm dough consistency. Cut dough in half, roll out half of dough with rolling pin. Line bottom of pie tin with rolled dough, covering sides of pie tin with dough. Place apple mixture in pie crust, filling to brim of the tin. Roll out the other half of dough, place on top of pie. Pinch edges to make the pie look like a pie! Slit top of pie to vent, preferably in the shape of a smiley face. Place cookie tin under pie tin to catch the bubble-overs.
Bake pie at 425 for 15 minutes then 350 for 30 minutes. Cool for at least 20 minutes before serving.
Yes, our Christmas was absolutely fantastically amazing. We spent it in sweatpants on our couch then later in sweatpants on Dawg‘s mom’s couch. We had Christmas Crunch, hot cocoa, pigs in a blanket, and filet mignon. Zomg. Hope your day was spectacular too.
And for all my Boxing Day celebrators: HAPPY BOXING DAY! Make this pie.
