It’s just not Thanksgiving without apple pie, am I right? Here’s a fun twist on the classic, a Dutch Apple Pie baked with a pecan crumble topping.
When I decided to share a week of Thanksgiving pies with you, I had the crazy notion to bake them all in one day. 5 pies in one single day. What was I thinking? I got up early, had prepared all of my pie crust the night before, and got baking.
One thing I decided going in to the day was that I was going to forgo the in-progress shots that I usually take as I bake a recipe. There just wouldn’t be enough time. However, as I finished sprinkling the crumble on top of this apple pie, I just couldn’t let the beauty of the scene go undocumented. A quick upload to Instagram and into the oven it went.
My husband was able to entertain the toddler all day so I could focus on my work, but I did manage to get him rolling and playing with some leftover pie crust dough. Having him alongside me in the kitchen, helping me, is maybe the only reason why I want him to grow up.
When the pies were all baked and the day was done, a slice of this pie is what I chose to cozy up to. Call me old-fashioned, but you just can’t beat warm homemade apple pie. Topped with ice cream, of course.
