Edie’s Apple Pie
We enjoyed a perfect Fall weekend this passed Saturday and Sunday; full of crisp apples, crunchy leaves under our feet and a warm Autumn sun.
The weather was just right allowing a light weight flannel to make the perfect outside layer. Weekends like that are perfect for going apple picking…which obviously means a fresh apple pie baking in the oven that evening.
Our very own switchboard + guest service employee, Edie Buningh, has provided us with one of her very own pie recipes for your baking pleasures!
Edie’s Delicious + Healthy Apple Pie
2 cups white flour (sorry, whole grain does not work)
1/4 cup toasted wheat germ
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup olive oil (not extra virgin)
5 tablespoons cold water
6 -8 Macintosh or tart apples
1/2 cup honey or maple syrup
2 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Mix flour, wheat germ and salt together.
Pour oil and cold water into a cup – DO NOT MIX
Pour water and oil mixture into dry ingredients and mix lightly with a fork.
Form into 2 balls and slightly flatten
Roll out between waxed paper to two 12 inch crusts; roll well the first time, does not re-roll well..
Peel (optional), quarter and slice apples. Sprinkle 1/3 of the flour on bottom crust and layer on half the apples, half the honey or maple syrup, and half the cinnamon. Sprinkle on 1/3 the flour. Repeat with second layer. and dot with the butter. Apply top crust. Flute edges and cut some slits in the crust.
