Ultimate Autumn Apple Pie | Dash of Jazz

Ultimate Autumn Apple Pie

This pie wins Fall. It just does! Every other pie can pack up and go home now. The showstopper is here. Can you tell that I’m super proud of this little creation of mine? It’s got apples, pears, cranberries, walnuts, maple syrup, and a gang of spices that mix together to make the best Fall flavor medley you ever did taste. The bottom is a classic, buttery, flaky crust and the top is a sweet oat streusel. If you’re trying to impress anybody with a dessert this season, this is the recipe to whip out. Make this pie if you’re not the only one trying to be the only one. Make this pie if you wantย a ring by spring. Make this pie to get that promotion you’ve been wanting at work. Of course, I am not guaranteeing any of these specific outcomes for you but the point is that this pie can’t hurt your situation at all…unless you’re allergic to goodness wrapped in comfort, baked with love. ๐Ÿ™‚

All jokes aside, I set out to tweak the comforting classic that is apple pie by incorporating different autumnal flavors and came up with this. I knew I wanted it to invoke all those flannel scarf, crisp air, grandma’s baking feelings of Fall with both the flavors and appearance but since I’m not skilled at making pretty pie crusts like Jojo Romancer (she’s a legit pie genius) I decided on a crumb topping which was the perfect way to incorporate oats (another element I envisioned). On top of everything else, it doesn’t take all day to make (about 30 minutes prep and 1 hour in the oven) so there’s absolutely no excuse not to try it!

I’d love to knowย what you think of this pie. For what occasion would you bake it? Thanks for reading!

Instructions
  1. Mix sea salt and flour in a bowl, work in butter with hands until a coarse meal is formed, then add water and continue to mix with hands until a ball of dough is formed. Wrap in plastic and stick in freezer while you make the filling and topping. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix apples and pears with sugars, spices, and sea salt in a large bowl. Add flour, cranberries, and walnuts. Mix well and set aside.
  3. In a smaller bowl, mix topping ingredients together until thick and fully incorporated. Set aside.
  4. Roll out crust then place into an 8-inch pie pan.
  5. Add filling then drizzle with maple syrup.
  6. Spoon topping onto pie and spread, if necessary, to evenly cover filling.
  7. Bake for one hour. Bottom crust should be firm and golden and filling should be thickened and bubbly. The topping should be golden brown and firm to the touch.
