Dried Apple "pour-through" Pie

Author/Submitted by: From The Farmers' Market - ISBN
Servings: 8
Categories: Desserts / Pies & Pastries

1    basic pastry dough for two-crust pie
1  qt  apple cider
3/4  lb  dried apples
1/4  c  sugar, (plus 1 tbs or more
    to taste)
1  tbsp  cornstarch
1/2  tsp  cinnamon
1/4  tsp  nutmeg, freshly grated
1  tbsp  lemon juice
2  tbsp  unsalted butter, cold, cut in bits
1  tbsp  milk
3  tbsp  heavy cream
    vanilla ice cream or
    sharp cheddar cheese

1. Divide the dough into two slightly unequal portions. Roll out the larger piece on a floured surface to a thickness of 1/8 inch. Fit it into a deep 9- or 9 1/2-inch pie dish. Roll the smaller piece of dough to a circle 1/8-inch thick and transfer it to a foil lined baking sheet. Place the pastry dough in the refrigerator while you prepare the filling. 2. Bring the cider to a boil in a large saucepan. Add the dried apples and simmer, covered, until they are softened but not mushy, 25 to 30 mins (timing may vary; add water to keep the apples covered with liquid, if necessary). Drain the apples, reserving the cider. 3. Preheat the oven to 425F. Sift into a mixing bowl the 1/4 cup sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Add the drained apples and toss gently. Add 1/4 cup of the reserved cider (chill the remainder for drinking) and the lemon juice, and toss again. Add more sugar to taste. Pour the mixture into the pastry-lined pie dish, mounding the apples in the center. Dot with butter; then lay the top crust over loosely. Trim off excess pastry, leaving a 3/4-inch border. Turn the edges under the edges of the bottom crust, forming a smooth border on the rim of pie plate. Crimp or flute the border. 4. Brush the pastry lightly with milk, then sprinkle with 1 Tbs sugar for a light glaze. Cut several slashes in the top crust to release steam. 5. Place the pie on a baking sheet and bake for 15 mins. Lower the heat to 400F and continue to bake until golden brown, about 30 mins longer. About 5 mins before the pie is done. Dribble the cream into the slashes to the top crust, then bake 5 mins longer. 6. Cool on a wire rack. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or =============== Reply 20 of Note 1 ================= Board: FOOD BB Topic: FOOD SOFTWARE Subject: Z MC2 APPLE PIE 3 75
