I doubt there are many of us who haven’t been touched by cancer in some way, shape or form. If you haven’t been, consider yourself lucky. This week, the #SundaySupper crew and Chantel (innovative cookware retailer) are encouraging everyone to #BakeForACure.
#BakeForACure is about sharing awareness and appreciation for those affected by cancer and the medical professionals who treat them. Bake something and take it to a medical cancer treatment professional or someone who has been affected by cancer. Let them know that you appreciate all they give and do, both physically and emotionally, in the face on cancer.
What did I bake? My Deep Dish Caramel Apple Pie – for my mom.
All that ooey gooey goodness. Yup. That’s the good stuff.
2 – 9″ Pie Crusts
2 Tablespoons Lime Juice
10-12 Fuji Apples (depending on size)
1/4 Teaspoon Ginger
1/8 Teaspoon Cloves
4 Tablespoons All-Purpose Flour
2 Teaspoons Cinnamon
1/2 Teaspoon Nutmeg
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
2 Cups Sugar
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
Grab your favorite deep dish pie plate (I prefer stoneware – easier to clean) and an apple peeler/corer/slicer (if you have one – if not, you can peel and slice by hand.)
Place the lime juice in a large mixing bowl.
In a second bowl, mix together all of the dry ingredients.
Peel and thinly slice your apples, adding them to the bowl of lime juice and tossing them to coat. Once you’ve peeled/sliced all of your apples, gradually stir in the dry mixture. As you mix, you’ll notice that the apples start to release their natural juices. This is exactly what you want to see!
Place the bottom crust into your pie plate. The crust will not go all the way up the sides. This is fine. Pour the apple mixture onto the crust. Spread the apple mixture, leaving a bit of a mound in the middle.
If you want to add a design to the top crust of your pie using a cookie cutter or other method, do this before placing the crust over the filling. Once the crust is placed over the filling, gently tuck the edges down the side and pinch the top and bottom crusts together. The crusts will meet inside the pie plate and will not make a traditional pie crust edge.
Place the pie in a preheated over for 40-45 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown. I advise that you place a cookie sheet lined with foil on the rack under your pie. The caramel goodness tends to bubble a bit and will make quite the mess if it ends up in the bottom of your oven.
Allow the pie to cool slightly before serving.
