TWD: All-American, All-Delicious Apple Pie


Emily of Sandmuffin chose All-American All-Delicious Apple Pie for this week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe.

The fun thing about apple pie is that you can change it up by using different varieties of apples. I used a combination of Honeycrisp, Granny Smith, and Red Delicious.


Granny is the only one of those that you hear being recommended for apple pie. The others bake up soft, as you can tell by looking at the cut slice... no distinct slices of apple that you can tell.

But you know what, I liked this version just fine. The taste was outstanding and I liked the slightly pinkish tint.

I was half lazy this time and used a store bought bottom crust. I made a full batch of Dorie's pie dough, though, and used half for the top crust. (I'm saving the other half for the cranberry galette coming up next month.)


All in all, this apple pie was a winner in my book.

Thank you Emily for choosing this recipe. You'll find the recipe on Emily's blog or in Dorie Greenspan's book "Baking, From my Home to Yours".

Great pie and I'm just curious about the MC crust and if you liked it as well as the top crust? Either way, its beautiful.

I will try this one again, with less lemon, I thought the zest was way overpowering. But next time more cinnamon, no zest and lots of fun different apples.

Looks delicious! How do you get your filling to turn out like that??? Mine just has apples spilling all over the place, nothing staying in a nice neat shape like yours. Ah, well...
