Hi! Thank you for stopping by to watch me, Leah, cook kosher. I've been the owner operator of my boutique catering firm in Seattle, Leah's Catering, for the past 14 years.
Yom Kippur ended a few hours ago. Just as there are those who immediately do some token gesture toward building the sukkah, my thoughts turn to apple pie. I love apple pie in the sukkah and always make sure that I make my own "personal pan". Giving birth to Aviva quite a few years back on the first night of Sukkot, I remember laying in the hospital thinking of the apple pie I left in the sukkah. Caught unexpectedly delivering 2 weeks early on yontif, there isn't any kosher food in the hospital. This is where having non-Jewish family members comes in handy. I ask my mother to bring me something to eat; the pie in the sukkah. How much do I want? The whole thing.
As a kid, I always enjoyed making the Dutch Apple Pie. Bringing a flaky crust together with slightly tart apples and a crumb topping is simple yet impressive. Yes, get that potential baker in the family baking this pie for the holidays.
We uploaded an assortment of my favorite apple pie recipes in step-by-step video format a couple of weeks ago. Someone pointed out that I didn't post the recipe. Whoops ~ sorry about that! Glad we caught it in time for Sukkot; we love our apples in the Northwest.
|Number of servings:||1 pie, 6 - 8 servings|
|Skill Level:||2 (1 Easy - 5 Hard)|
|Estimated POINT value:|
1 single pie crust, unbaked
Preheat the oven to 375'.
Make a single pie crust using the Perfect Pie Dough recipe. Chill until ready to fill.
Peel the apples, core and slice into even pieces. Toss with remaining filling ingredients. Add apples to the pie crust.
Make topping: Combine the flour and sugar. "Cut" in the margarine or butter.
Place crumb topping on top of the pie. Place the pie onto a baking sheet pan or cookie pan to catch juices as the pie bakes. Bake for 40 - 50 minutes until the apples are tender. You may want to cover with a piece of foil if the pie browns too quickly.
