ABC October 2013 - Crusty Apple Pie

This bake is for Avid Baker's Challenge October 2013, a baking event hosted by Hanaa from Hanaa's Kitchen where we bake recipes from King Arthur Flour for this year

Another keeper recipe. I love it!
Not only it's delicious, but it's easy to make, too. It's so me, huh? :)

Fresh from the oven
After 1 hour of anxious waiting - time to slice!

Yum yum yum!

I make half recipe using 6 inches pie pan
For full recipe, you may view in Hanaa's blog HERE

I omitted buttermilk powder and for the cinnamon sprinkle I used a mixture of cinnamon and packed brown sugar
I used 3  medium organic New Zealand Fuji apples, mixed with a dash of salt and a tsp of lemon juice
Sprinkled the top of the pie with demerara sugar (inspired by Joyce from Kitchen Flavours)
Oh, and I used my ten fingers to do the mixing for the crust :P
Baked in preheated oven of 240degC for 15 minutes and reduce the temperature to 190degC for 35 minutes

I cut the first slice after 1 hour and oh my, it's so good!
The crust was so crusty (explained the name LOL), flaky, buttery and crisp, too
The demerara sugar added a nice crunch in every bite
The apple filling was soft, sweet and mixed with cinnamon, it's just perfect!



  1. yum yum like your crusty apple pie and i will follow you.

  2. Alice, your apple pie looks so good! I would love a slice (or two) with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream!

  3. OMG Big Yumms! Love that criss-cross pattern!

  4. Look at the sugar crust, oh, looks so good!

  5. oh man.. i don't need to read your description... i can tell it is C-R-U-S-T-Y!!!! i love to bake this but nobody in my house (or around me) loves pie :(... so so so... can i be a parasite of your pie? o(^_-)O

  6. Love the rusty look of your pie. Plus the sparkling sugar on top! Looks really flaky!

  7. Hi Alice,
    You are making me crave for it again! It is delicious and the sumac adds a wonderful crunch to the crust, righto!
    Thanks for the mention!

  8. Love the pattern of your top crust, Alice. I'm glad you enjoyed this recipe. I loved it too. With the weather getting colder here, I just might have to make it again :-)
