Sweet and Savory: Summer Apple Pie Recipe

Selecting the Apples

Choose the right apples. Opt for a mix of tart and sweet varieties like Granny Smith and Honeycrisp for a balanced flavor and perfect texture.

Preparing the Crust

Prepare a flaky crust. Use cold butter and a touch of salt in your pie crust dough. Chill the dough before rolling it out for the best results.

Sweet and Savory Filling

Create the filling. Combine sliced apples with brown sugar, a pinch of salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a hint of black pepper for a surprising savory note.

Adding Citrus Zest

Enhance with citrus zest. Grate some lemon or orange zest into the apple mixture to add a fresh, zesty element.

Thickening the Filling

Thicken the filling. Use cornstarch or flour to absorb the apple juices and create a thick, luscious filling.

Assembly and Decoration

Assemble the pie. Roll out the dough, place the bottom crust in your pie dish, add the apple filling, and cover with a lattice or full top crust.
