Apple Crisp Pie

This week I have an abundance of apples at my house and realized that I’d better do more to use them up.  These extra large honey crisp apples are delicious to eat plain (sweet and crisp), but I’d never used this variety for baking before.  Seems like Granny Smith are the most often recommended type for recipes.

The October/November issue of The Cooking Club just happened to have a section with apple recipes.

The recipe for spiced apple crisp appealed to me since it doesn’t need a top crust and I had a deep dish pie shell in the freezer.

The pie turned out great.  The apple slices kept their shape and the pie was easy to slice.

This pie was delicious with a nice cup of tea.  A dollop of whipped cream or some vanilla ice cream would also be a nice with the pie.

After the success of this recipe, I’m ready to move on to the Apple Ginger Cake and Salted Caramel Apple Bars from the magazines Apple-licious recipe section.  They will be a nice compliment to my Thanksgiving Pumpkin Pie.

How about you – what’s your favorite way to use up an over abundance of apples?

Oh my, this looks deelish! I like to use apples in tea breads (loaf style) and cobblers. And I love that teacup cloth (or napkin?) underneath your apples!

Apple pie is always my favorite way to use up apples. I often make the filling and freeze it, then thaw it into freshly made crust whenever we want a pie during the winter. I have several waiting in the freezer now. The apple with caramel bars sounds intriguing. Your pie is beautiful too.

This year I froze some apple pie filling (minus the crust), and it's worked out wonderfully! I just mix the apples, sugar, spices, and freeze.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I love apples. A friend and I canned 29 quarts of applesauce in early November. My favorite apple dessert has to be apple dumplings. They are time intensive, but oh, so yummy! I also enjoy apple crisp and Dutch apple pie. We also like to eat baked apples as a side dish with dinner sometimes.
