Bookish Baking: Dean Winchester Worthy Apple Pie (Supernatural)

Okay, so, not a book, I know. so not exactly bookish. But Apple Pie is basically a requirement for any American holiday, and Supernatural is a pretty popular fandom and I’m going with it.
This recipe is adapted from various I’ve found online.
Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 3-4 Large apples (I prefer Honeycrisp – Granny-Smith is also popular, but you can use any kind you prefer)
  • 1/3 cup whiskey (The alcohol bakes out, and basically every recipe I found online included it)
  • 1 T Corn starch
  • 1/4 cup Light Brown Sugar
  • 1/2tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 3tbsp Cornflour
  • Pre-made pie crust and pastry sheet (or you can make your own, this recipe seems good)
  • 16 oz sugar for Caramel

 

Instructions:

Pie

  1. Peel, core and slice apples thinly (or to preference, the thinner the slice, the more cooked the apples will get)
  2. In a large pot, cook the apples over medium heat.
  3. Mix the dry ingredients, once well mixed, stir in whiskey. Add to apples.
  4. Cook down, until thick rather than liquid – whiskey should mostly cook down.
  5. Spoon apple mixture into crust, cut extra pastry sheet into a lattice and lay over the top.  If you choose to simply cover the top with the pastry sheet rather than a lattice, poke holes into the top to allow steam to escape.
  6. Brush the top with a little milk and/or butter, and bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes at 370 F/190 C, or until the pastry is golden.

Caramel

  • In a small saucepan, add sugar, and just enough water to dissolve. Stir.
  • Stop stirring and leave on high heat until color is desired.
  • Add 1 T of butter  after it’s taken off of the heat and stir SLOWLY stirring quickly may pop air bubbles and lead to some extremely nasty sugar burns.
  • Let cool while out cooks, pour over the top when served.
