I'm Caught Up - Apple Pie!

Posted by - Gerri



I'm finally caught up with the Have the Cake blog. This evening I made the apple pie and have a few more day to knock out the boscotti.

I altered the "Gingery Apple Crumb Pie" recipe in the November 2009 issue of Real Simple. http://http//www.realsimple.com/food-recipes/browse-all-recipes/gingery-apple-crumb-pie-recipe-00000000022648/index.html.




This recipe calls for a flour bottom with a crumb topping, but I used a Crisco-based flour crust instead.




I used a ginger spread instead of the grated ginger and used Rome apples instead of Granny Smith.



I also sprinkled some dark brown sugar over the apple mixture before putting on the top crust.





It was simple enough and I like the sublte ginger flavor. Now, if Tom hadn't eaten all the Ciao Bella Tahatian Vanilla Gelato, I'd have something really good to go with this!
