You know when you have a craving for something but don’t realize you haven’t enough ingredients until you’re almost done making it?
That’s exactly how my Open Face Apple Pie was born!
If you’d like a top on your pie make sure you have enough flour before you start making it! (to make a top crust use the same recipe as below, roll the dough out on wax paper, cut into strips & lay them criss cross on top of your pie & sprinkle with cinnamon)
First: The Super Easy Pie Crust
2 cups of flour; a pinch of salt; 1/2 to 2/3 cup of oil; milk to make 1 full cup (added to the oil). Mix everything together in your pie plate (or ceramic dish) then press the dough out & up the sides of the pie plate. Finished!
Onto the Apple Filling:
4 – 6 Apples ; 1/2 cup brown sugar; 1/2 cup white sugar; 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon; 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg; 1/4 teaspoon ginger; 1 tablespoon vinegar Peel & cut apples into small wedges. Add sugars, spices & vinegar to apple wedges. Put evenly into pie crust. Bake at 400F (200 celsius or gasmark 5) for 30 – 40 minutes – until crust is golden brown.
Delicious even without a top!
