Apple Slab Pie
When it comes to baking with apples, the Granny Smith is a standout! Not overly sweet, this light green gem melds well with all those fragrant autumn spices I love. And the apple’s firm structure means it will keep its shape even when baked.
Every fall I make sure to grab a bushel of Granny Smith apples so I can bake up a few batches of my apple slices. I like to think of these apple-filled delights as an apple pie you can eat with your hands!
How to make a great crust for Apple Slab Pie
In addition to Granny Smith apples, you must make your own crust. I use a favorite recipe that includes good-ol’ Crisco™ plus egg yolks. Those two ingredients are the key to this crust recipe: flaky and rich in flavor but firm enough to hold all those delicious Granny Smith apples in place.
