Coffee is great on its own, but having coffee with something else – like a dessert – is just heavenly. The taste of coffee fits well with many things – such as cookies (which are good for dipping), coffee cakes, always with any chocolate (it’s a classic flavor combination) or every pie.
Everyone has their own special recipe for their favorite cake. Of course, there are all types of pies, such as lemon meringue, peach, cherry, pecan, pumpkin … I could go on forever. It seems that every type of fruit has been turned into a ride at some point. But there’s also my favorite – apple pie. And no one does better than my mother. For those of you who haven’t been lucky enough to taste this sweet cinnamon-y goodness, I include the recipe here. This circle is not that difficult to master, and once you have created it, you are sure to add it to your favorites list as well.
Make this circle and get a generous slice of your next cup of coffee, hopefully in a special coffee mug customized to your own interests. Special mugs or cups that reflect your own life make it enjoy your coffee and pie moment so much more satisfying. I hope you enjoy this circle as much as I do.
Waste Apple Pie
2 ½ cup flour
2 TBSP. white sugar
5 TBSP. COLD water (approx.)
2/3 cups of abbreviation
1 tsp. I ran
1 pound bag of solid cooking apples (spy, grandma forge, etc.)
2 TBSP. + 2 TBSP. cinnamon
2 TBSP. + 3 TBSP. white sugar
2 TBSP. corn starch
Egg wash – made from beaten egg + small amount of water
Sugar to be sprinkled on top
Preheat oven to 450 F.
Measure all pastry ingredients except water in the food processor. Pulse a few times until the mixture is the size of small peas. Add just enough cold water until the dough forms a ball through the top. (Do not mix too much or the pastry will be hard.) Cut the dough into about one-third – two-thirds are used for the bottom crust and one-third for the top. Roll out two-thirds of the dough onto lightly floured surface and place a pie coated with dough. Sprinkle 2 TBSP. cinnamon and 2 TBSP. sugar on bottom of crust. Peel apples and slice and place them in pie crust. Sprinkle cornstarch over apples, then 2 TBSP. cinnamon and 3 TBSP. white sugar. Roll out the dough to the top crust and spread them over the pie.
Shrink edges for sealing. Brush egg wash over top crust and sprinkle with a little white sugar. Cut ventilation holes in the top of the crust with a sharp knife.
Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes.
