I received an email from Duncan Hines about their new line of cake mixes awhile back. I finally picked one up to make for the family.
Last night, my mom brought me a huge sack of apples from their apple tree. Today I made my first apple pie of the season. I think it came out beautifully! I hope it tastes just as good!
Here's the recipe:
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
6 to 7 cups thinly sliced peeled tart apples
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Pastry for double-crust pie (9 inches)
1 tablespoon butter
1 egg white
In a small bowl, combine the sugars, flour and spices; set aside. In
a large bowl, toss apples with lemon juice. Add sugar mixture; toss
Line a 9-in. pie plate with bottom crust; trim pastry even with edge.
Fill with apple mixture; dot with butter. Roll out remaining pastry
to fit top of pie. Place over filling. Trim, seal and flute edges.
Cut slits in pastry.
Beat egg white until foamy; brush over pastry. Sprinkle with sugar.
Cover edges loosely with foil.
Bake at 375° for 25 minutes. Remove foil and bake 20-25 minutes, until bubbly and crust is golden. Cool on a wire rack. Serves 8.
