Slice of Apple Pie
Courtesy of Arthur Bovino

In 2006, this classic American apple pie recipe was selected as one of the top 25 dishes of the year by USA Today. It's as scrumptious as promised, and even more so with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt on top of a warm, buttery slice.

INGREDIENTS

For pie dough:

  • 1 pound cold butter, chopped into small pieces
  • 1 pound all-purpose flour
  • 4 ounces cake flour
  • 1 ounce sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1 cup heavy cream

For the pie:

  • 2 ounces butter
  • ½ cup brown sugar, plus more for sprinkling
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 5 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and cut into 8 wedges (preferably chilled)
  • 2 ounces apple sauce
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • ½ cup brown sugar, for sprinkling

DIRECTIONS

For pie dough:

In a mixer with a paddle, mix butter, flours, sugar, and salt just until combined (make sure not to overmix). In a bowl, mix egg yolks and cream together. Add to the flour mixture. Mix very quickly, just until everything comes together. Chill dough before using.

For the pie:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a sauté pan, melt the butter.  Add the brown sugar and cinnamon sticks. Cook until caramelized, and then add the apples. Cook until they are just soft but retain their firmness (chilling the apples before cooking helps this process).

Roll pie dough out until 1/8-inch thick and line the pie tin with it. Add apple sauce to the bottom, spreading it out with a spatula, and then fill the pie tin with the cooked apples. Cut out one round piece of pie dough and place on top. Whisk together egg and milk to create egg wash and brush it over the pie. Sprinkle some brown sugar on top. Bake for about 30-35 minutes or until golden brown.

Just watched the Blue Duck Tavern's Pie on Cooking Chanel Unique Eats program. I found this Daily Meal site by googling the recipe. I am excited about getting the recipe, except it looked like a different kind of pan (not the typical pie pan), but the recipe doesn't say what it is. Any idea?
Thanks so much for all this!
