Abby’s Savory Apple Pie

(As featured in Rekindled, Fountain Creek Chronicles, book 1)


1 Package Pillsbury Pie Crusts
(okay, Abby didn’t have Pillsbury, so you can make your own if you want) 
9-10 apples, two kinds, one of them being Granny Smith

1/4 C Apple Juice
2 T Lemon Juice

3/4 C Sugar

1/4 C Corn Starch

Dash of salt

1 tsp Vanilla

1 tsp Cinnamon

1/2 tsp allspice

Preheat oven to 425. Roll one crust out into pie plate. Peel and chip apples into a large mixing bowl. In separate bowl, combine all dry ingredients and stir to blend. Combine all liquid ingredients in another bowl and stir to blend. Spoon dry mixture into pie dish, then pour liquid mixture over apples. Place second pie crust on top, crimp edges and cut four slivers in the top in order for steam to release.

Place pie in oven and bake for 15 minutes. Then remove from the oven and cover entire pie with foil. Cut slits in center of foil and peel back so that only the outer edge is covered (to prevent it from burning). Or they have these really cool “pie edge protectors” that work wonders. Reduce heat to 375 and continue baking for 45-55 minutes or until golden. Enjoy!
