open apple pie

Thanksgiving is for making pie, right? It is for me. I made 2 pumpkin yesterday and today I wanted to make apple. I found this recipe in The Mennonite Treasury of Recipes. Open Apple Pie. Did you notice the 1/2 cup of cream you pour over the pie just before baking? Yep, 35% cream. That's a Mennonite recipe for you. Delicious!

Open Apple Pie

9" unbaked pastry shell

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup flour

4-5 large cooking apples

Mix flour and sugar and cover bottom of shell with this mixture. Arrange sliced apples over this and cover with the following:

3/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1 tsp cinnamon - I used 2

1/4 cup butter

Pour over all 1/2 cup cream. Bake at 350 until crust and top are golden brown.
