Apple Rosette Pie

Cooking, Dessert

One of the lovely Cooking websites I follow is Bake at 350. Miss Bridget is a talented and marvelous baker! … yummy stuff with GREAT directions – for those of us domestically challenged folks!!

Well, she has decided to hostess a monthly meme called Flavor of the Month! July 2009 is the month of PIE… and you all know how much I love pie… ((Especially now as I am 8 months pregnant and craving all sweet baked goods known to man!!)) Her rules were simple — create anything related to pie… So I’ve decided to share my favorite recipe for an Apple Rosette Pie!

Grandma’s scratch pie crust
1 c. flour
1/3c. crisco
add water until workable

7-8 apples (I prefer Granny Smith or Macintosh)
-slice them on the stem axis
-thinly slice them again
-boil them in water until flexible (2-3min)
-blot them dry on paper towels
-place them in the crust, saving the most flexible pieces for the center
-use broken pieces for the center

In a skillet (on medium),
combine these until it makes a syrup,
then drizzle over the apple pieces.
4Tbs butter
1c. brown sugar
1/2tsp. cinnamon
1/2tsp. nutmeg

Bake at 425* for 30 minutes… serve and enjoy!

    Absolutely stunning! This looks like the perfect apple pie for me, because I rarely eat the crust and go straight for the apples.
