Fall has arrived and so have a selection of good pie apples. Thru experimentation I have found these three tips to help make your warm Apple Pie delicious and almost perfect every time!
1. Use a variety of apples, like a tart Granny Smith or Pippin with a sweet Golden Delicious or Jonagold.
2. The secret to a crispy pie crust? Place the pie on a preheated cookie sheet and bake in the lower third of your oven.
3. For best results, cut the fruit uniformly in size - I get perfect wedges with Oxo's Corer/Wedger ($11.50; oxo.com), or if you have a Linen's and Things store, they usually offer a 20% off coupon in the Sunday morning ads. Use it and save more on the Corer/Wedger.
Now go bake a great apple pie. I can smell it baking now. YUM!
