-tee hee-

my inner geekiness told me to let my love for numbers out and by golly, i’m letting it show!

and in honor of pi day, i’m sharing with everyone, my 2nd favorite pie to bake Dreamy Apple Pie (the 1st favorite being pecan pie). this pie’s recipe is from one of my favorite bloggers, ms. pioneer woman. if you’re ever curious of trying out photoshop actions, she has some free ones available on her site that are fabulous and totally usable for daily photos.

i’m not one to not share recipes. i figured, the more people know how to bake a bombdizzle pie, the more chances i might have a pie or two being sent my way 😉

enjoy…

ingredients:

  • 1 whole unbaked pie crust
  • filling
  • 3 whole Large (4 Or 5 small) granny smith apples, peeled, cored, and sliced thin
  • ½ cups brown sugar
  • ½ cups sugar
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ⅛ teaspoons cinnamon
  • topping
  • 7 tablespoons butter
  • ¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cups brown sugar
  • ¼ cups pecans (more to taste)
  • dash Of salt

preparation instructions

preheat oven to 375 degrees.

roll out pie dough and place it in a pie pan. decorate the edges as desired.

(or do what i do and buy the pie crust already laid out in the pie pan)

add apple slices to a large bowl. in a separate bowl, mix together cream, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon flour, vanilla, and cinnamon. pour over apples. pour apples into pie shell.

in the bowl of a food processor (or you can mix by hand) combine butter, flour, sugar, pecans (chop if you’re not using a food processor), and salt. mix until everything comes together in clumps. pour topping over apples.

attach foil to the edges and lay a piece of flat foil loosely over the top of the pie. place pie pan on top of a rimmed cookie sheet and bake for one hour. at the end, remove foil and allow to finish baking and browning. can bake for up to 15 or 20 minutes more if necessary.

remove from oven when pie is bubbly and golden brown.

serve warm with hard sauce, whipped cream, or ice cream.

again, here’s the original link to pioneer woman’s dreamy apple pie.

have a nice day!

  1. Mmm mMm looks yummy! I remember I had your infamous pecan pie back in Woodside a few years ago. I’m looking forward to remember how it tasted and write a review on it however, I’m gonna have to re-taste it once more (hopefully sometime soon). Tee hee. 🙂
