French Apple Pie

Does anyone have a recipe for French Apple Pie? This is a two crust pie with a dense filling of apples and raisins. The top has a white icing. Not a soft, thick cake type icing -- it is thin and sort of brittle. This used to be a very popular pie but now you can't find it anywhere, not even on the recipes sites. It seems to be a thing of the past. Thanks to anyone who can help. By the way, this is not the same as Dutch Apple Pie.

You might want to try a different name when looking for recipes. What I think of French Apple pie is a great recipe (that I lost BOOOOO HOOOO!) of piled high apples with a yummy crumb topping. That is what I have seen alot of "French" Apple pie recipes as.

Hope you find it!

"Here's the French Apple Pie recipe from my Betty Crocker Cook Book copyright 1956. I'm writing it just as it is in the book. You might enjoy the products that are mentioned. You need three recipes, the (key) Apple pie recipe which is used for several variations of apple pie, the Pastry for One-crust pie, and the French Apple Pie Recipe. Good luck with your pie making!"

Apple Pie Recipe (key)

"From about 1630, Apple Pie was served almost daily in New England . . . when the newly planted orchards were bearing fruit."

Know your apples! Select tart, firm, juicy apples, such as Jonathans, Winesaps, Greenings, Duchess, Wealthies, or Roman Beauties. 1 lb apples equals 3 medium apples or 3 cups sliced apples.

Peel apples, quarter them, remove cores, and slice 1/4 " thick. If apples are dry, sprinkle with a little water. Use the smaller or larger amount of sugar according to sweetness of apples and desired taste. For more tartness, add a little lemon juice.

Apple Pie Filling 9" pie 8" pie

Mix 3/4 to 1 cup sugar 1/2 to 3/4 cup

1 tsp. cinnamon or nutmeg 3/4 tsp.

Mix lightly through 6 to 7 cups sliced apples 4 to 5 cups

Heap up in pastry-lined pie pan.

Dot with........1 1/2 tbsp. butter 1 tbsp.

Cover with top crust which has slits cut in it. Seal and flute. Bake until crust is nicely browned and apples are cooked through (test with fork). Serve warm or cold . . . may be topped with cream, whipped crean, or ice cream.

Temperature: 425 degrees (hot oven).

Time: Bake 50 to 60 minutes.

* * * * *

Standard Pastry for One-crust Pie (8 or 9") Make with solid shortening.

Mix 1 cup sifted Gold Medal Flour

1/2 tsp. salt

Cut in with pastry blender 1/3 cup lard (or 1/3 cup plus 1 tbsp. hydrogenated shortening such as Spry, Crisco, Swift'ning, Snowdrift)

Sprinle with 2 tbsp. water

Mix with fork until all the flour is moistened. Gather dough together and press into a ball.

My words follow. "At this point the cookbook has pictures on how to roll out the dough. If you wish to roll the dough out between wax paper, wet the cabinet lightly, place one sheet of wax paper (just larger than the width of the paper, or a 12 inch square) on the wet counter. Place the ball of dough on that sheet of wax paper and place another piece of wax paper over the ball. Use a rolling pin to flatten. You may have to roll in several directions to get your dough round. Your dough round should be just a bit larger than the top outside of your pie pan. When the dough is flat enough and round enough, carefully peel the top piece of wax paper off. Replace gently and turn the two pieces of paper and dough over. Peel off the other side. You will still have the back piece of paper on the dough as you lift the dough onto the pan. When the dough is positioned over the pan, remove the last piece of paper. Use your fingers and flute the edges of the dough at the top of the pan."

This is a great recipe given to me by my Mother in law. This is my husband's favorite pie and I love making it for him. Even if you don't like raisins too much, they are not overwhelming.

The difference between French apple pie and Dutch apple pie is strictly in the crumbled topping. The Dutch apple pie topping is made with flour and butter, while the French apple pie topping adds crushed walnuts to the topping mixture. This information comes directly from Marie Calleders, and no one knows more about pies than Marie Callender!
