Open one can of crescents, take two triangles of crescents, so they look like a rectangle. Sprinkle lots and lots of cinnamon and sugar, take your apple, peel it, and cut it in 4 pieces, yes 4 pieces. Place each piece on crescent and roll it all up. Place as is in sprayed cake pan.

For a quicker and easier apple pie, follow the recipe for mixing the apples with spices, flour and cinnamon, but only make 1/2 the crust recipe. Put the fruit in a pan or pie dish and cover with the top crust. You still get the flavor of homemade pie but without the calorie and fat laden bottom crust. This can be adapted for any recipe that calls for a top crust.

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!"

* * * * *

French Apple Pie.
"From a famous Hollywood tearoom."
Make Pastry for One-Crust Pie. Line pie pan. Add filling as in (key) Apple Pie recipe below, except use minimum amount of sugar. Sprinkle with Crumb topping below.

Crumb Topping 9" pie 8" pie
1/2 cup butter 1/3 cup
1/2 cup brown sugar (packed) 1/3 cup
1 cup Gold Medal Flour 3/4 cup

Serve warm with cream or ice cream.

* * * * *

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."

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!

Gravenstein apples are considered to be one of the very best apples for both cooking and baking. I can't think of any apple recipe where Gravensteins wouldn't be a great apple of choice.

Wish we could grow apples in sunny old Florida, but they love the colder climates. They are a fast growing apple tree too for anyone wanting to plant great all-around apple tree. They produce for a lot of years as well. Both tart and sweet, they make great applesauce and delicious apple pies.

A friend brought us some home grown apples. I had enough to make an apple pie and prepare 3 more batches with all the ingredients to freeze and make pies later on. The pie was so good that I have already pulled out a frozen mix and made another one. While the oven was heating, I made the pie crust. It was quick and easy and tasted just as good if not better than the pie made with the fresh apples.

Ingredients

  • 6 cups apples thinly sliced
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • Dash nutmeg
  • Dash salt
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • Pastry for 2 crust pie (see below)

Pie Crust:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (sift before measuring)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup Crisco shortening
  • 7 Tbsp. cold water

Directions

For Pie Crust: Mix flour and salt. Blend in Crisco until its crumbly. Add water and mix with spoon. Add a little flour until you can form dough into a ball. Divide the dough into 2 balls and roll for bottom crust and top crust.

Combine sugar, flour, spices and salt. Mix with apples. Pour into unbaked pie crust and dot with butter. Place crust on top, trim and seal the edges. Cut six slits in middle for steam to escape. Bake 400 degrees F for 50 minutes. Let cool before cutting so the juices will set. Slice and serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.
