Grandma always made the most mouth-watering apple pie, didn’t she? She’s passed her recipe down to you, but you’d just love to add your own unique spin to the recipe and make it “yours” for the next generation to enjoy and cherish. Apples and cinnamon just seem to be the perfect pair, and adding Cinnamon Imperials
to the traditional apple pie recipe is a great way to spice up that ol’ recipe just a bit and ensure your family’s next generation will be begging you for your secret apple pie recipe!Makes 8 servingsIngredients:
• 24 oz. bag of Cinnamon Imperials
• ½ cup sugar
• 3 tbsp. flour
• ½ cup brown sugar
• ¼ tsp ginger
• ¼ tsp nutmeg
• 7 cups apples, thinly sliced and pared
• 1 tbsp. lemon juice
• 9 in. pie crust
• 1 tbsp. butter
• 1 egg white
• 1 pastry for double-crust pieDirections:
Combine the sugar, brown sugar, flour, ginger, nutmeg, and Cinnamon Imperials
in a small bowl. In a separate large bowl, blend the apples and lemon juice together. Add the sugar, flour, spices, and Cinnamon Imperials mixture in the small bowl to the apples and lemon juice in the large bowl. Be sure to blend the mixture together well. Line a 9” pan with half of the pastry, and carefully pour the mixture into the crust. Place a few dots of butter around the top of the apple mixture.
Use a rolling pin to roll out the remaining half of the pastry, and place it on the top of the pie. Cut a few slits in the top to achieve that good old fashioned American pie look. Whip the egg white, and brush over the pastry top. Then, simply bake at 375 degrees for about 35 minutes, and then increase the temperature to 400 degrees and bake an additional 10-15 more minutes. Allow it to cool, and enjoy a slice of Cinnamon Imperials apple pie and all the compliments that will come rolling in!
