American Apple Pie

Our mixed spice does the trick nicely for an Aussie apple pie but we asked Herbie for a specific American apple pie spice blend to make an extra fragrant, spiced apple pie. The blend can also be used in an apple crumble or apple muffins.

Ingredients

  • Granny Smith apples, peeled and sliced  ·  5 pounds 
  • lemon juice  ·  2 tablespoons 
  • raw sugar  ·  3/4 cup 
  • Herbie’s Apple Pie Spice  ·  3 teaspoons 
  • sheets sweet shortcrust pastry  ·  2 
  • egg  ·  1 
  • raw sugar, for dusting  ·  2 tablespoons 

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Combine apples, lemon juice, 6 oz sugar and apple pie spice and mix well.

Place one sheet of pastry in a 10 inch pie dish, then fill with apples. Cover with second piece of pastry and brush with beaten egg and sprinkle with extra 2 tbsp sugar. Make 5 x 1 inch slits in the pastry top to let the steam escape.

Bake for 50-60 minutes until crust is golden and apples are tender when pierced.

Serve warm with vanilla ice cream and Caress Cuvée Blanc.
