The bushels of apples are starting to show up at the farmer’s market, which means it’s time for apple cider, applesauce, and of course apple pie.
Apple pie is one of those staples that brings to mind Grandma’s house, holiday celebrations and the warm feelings of being with family. So imagine the kind of comfort and happiness that an apple pie might bring to the kitchen of a Ronald McDonald House.
Baking is a great way to give back to RMHC. Get a group of friends together, and bring some homemade comfort to children and families staying at your local Ronald McDonald House. We’ve got the perfect recipe to use.
Apple Slab Pie - Just like Grandma's
Buttery Pastry Dough
Three big granny smith apples, peeled, cored, sliced and then halved
2 tablespoons cinnamon
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
Egg wash (1 egg plus a bit of water, whisked together)
Vanilla Glaze (1 cup confectioners sugar, 1 tablespoon milk, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Butter a 10 by 10 by 3 inch pan.
Mix together apples, cinnamon, sugar and lemon juice. Set aside.
Split dough into two pieces - one bigger, one smaller. Roll out large piece of dough and lay in pan, letting the extra crust drip over the side. Fill with apples. Roll out the small piece of dough and drape over the apples. Pinch together the two crusts and trim the edges with a knife. Brush the top with egg wash. Bake for 45-55 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Let cool and drizzle with vanilla glaze.
