Shredded Apple Pie…

I found this wonderful recipe on Life As A Lofthouse’s blog. It is a recipe from a steakhouse down south, that went out of business.  I thought it looked so yummy, that Morgan and I just HAD to try to make it.  You’re supposed to serve it with caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream, but I only had whipped topping tonight.  Next time I will be equipped!  The pie is REALLY RICH, so the whipped cream was probably plenty.  FYI…I don’t skimp on my dessert recipes, so no low fat, or no fat ingredients here.  You can do that if you want…but like I said…no skimping here!

Here we go…

(In my best Julia Child voice) First…you peel the apples…The recipe calls for Red Delicious, but I used Honey Crisp.  They are so sweet and flavorful.  I don’t care for Red Delicious, personally. To each his own… :)

Then you shred the apples…being very careful not to shred any fingers.  Morgan wanted to do this part, so I only had her shred until she got close to the core.  I wanted her to have enough apple to hold onto, that her fingers would not come near the grater…She did a great job!

Next you mix all of the ingredients together, and bake all of this yummy goodness! Pay no attention to the dirty oven :(

Just out of the oven…beautiful! We put foil around the edges of the crust for the first half of baking time, so the crust would not burn.
