easy as apple pie

This pie is insanely good and very easy to assemble. Prepping the apples is time consuming, but the rest is quick. The vinegar really brings out a sweet, intense, apple flavor. MMmmm!!

5 granny smith apples
juice of a lemon
1 cup sugar
2 Tbsp flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
kosher pie crust (or 2 - see below)

Core and peel apples and cut into thin slices. Put apples in a bowl with cold water and lemon juice to keep from turning brown.

Meanwhile, sift sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt into a large bowl. Add vinegar and mix well. Drain apples and add to sugar mixture, making sure all apples get coated well.

Pour apples into pie crust. Cover edges of crust with aluminum foil to keep from burning (remove 10 minutes before pie is finished baking). Bake for 45-55 minutes or until apples are soft (easily pierced with a knife/toothpick/fork).

Instead of adding a top layer of crust to the pie, I cut long, narrow strips of dough from a second pre-made pie crust and arranged it in a lattice over the top of the apples.

Hi There

I just stumbled upon your blog and think it is an excellent read for foodies and especially like the photos and design of the blog.I started off as a blogger myself and realise the importance of a good clean design like you have here. I have now bookmarked it for myself to read and have added you to our new list of "all the food blogs in the world" on which we have been compiling for the last month! Hopefully it will send you some traffic in the long run. Looking forward to reading your thoughts on food so keep up the good work and talk soon. Cheers
