Apple Pies For Fall

Venice, CA

Thanksgiving isn’t complete without an apple pie for dessert am I right?!!!!  How cute are these pie making accessories and apron all from the Martha Stewart collection created for Macy’s?!  I was in h-e-a-v-e-n when they arrived.  This will be darling for Christmas baking as well. And such a great activity to do with family and loved ones :)  It took me a while to figure out how to peel the apples, but once I did, this apple peeler made it seamless – and fast.

The Martha Stewart Collection for Macy’s has so many quality pieces – from baking supplies, to dishes, barware, bedding, towels and more.  I have my eye on this bar set for my new bar cart!

I loved how the recipe for the pies was at the bottom of the pie dish – talk about easy peasy.  This pie dish and these festive dish towels would make such a nice hostess present if you’re heading somewhere for the holidays or have a Secret Santa party to attend!  Shop everything I used for my apple pie making below!

Apple Pie Recipe

Pie Ingredients:

2 tbsp unsalted butter
1/2 tsp ground spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, allspice, clove)
3 lbs Granny Smith apples peeled, cored and cut into wedges
1 tsp grated lemon zest and juice
pinch of salt
1/2 cup sugar
3 tbsp flour
2 tbsp heavy cream

Dough Ingredients:

2 3/4 cup flour
1 tsp sugar
4 tbsp vegetable shortening chilled
1 tsp salt
12 tbsp unsalted butter, chilled, diced
6 to 10 tbsp chilled water

Instructions:

Combine the flour, salt and sugar for the dough in a food processor.  Add the butter and process until the mixture resembles coarse meal (for 8 seconds.)  With the machine running, slowly add the water, and pulse until the dough holds together (no longer than 30 seconds.)  Add more water if it’s crumbly.  Divide dough into 2 balls and chill for 1 hour.  Then roll out dough to to be 12 inches and 1/8 inch thick and fit over the pie plate.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  In a large bowl, combine apples, sugar, lemon, spices, flour, and and salt.  Pour onto the pie plate with dough.  Dot with butter.  Roll second disc of dough and lay over. Cut vents into top crust. Trim edges and seal with finger.  Chill for 30 minutes.

Remove pie from fridge and brush with heavy cream and sprinkle with sugar.  Place on a baking sheet to catch any juices that may overflow.  Bake until golden – about 45 or 60 minutes.  Cool for 1 hour before serving and enjoy!

    Every year for Thanksgiving I buy apples and ingredients for apple pie, and it continues to be the only item not made on Thanksgiving. I am aiming for Saturday morn!

    I love this post. There’s something comforting for me about an apple pie in the fall, mostly the memories attached to the smell of them baking. Thank you for bringing the warmth of that in a healthy way.
