TWD - All American, All Delicious Apple Pie
Does anything say Fall quite like an apple pie? I think not! Dorie's version called for a double crust but as you can see, I went the streusel route. The crust is my least favorite part of the pie so I just couldn't go there. I will say, however, that I loved the trick of sprinkling the bottom crust with graham cracker crumbs to keep it from getting soggy. Totally worked.
I used four different kinds of apples, per Dorie's suggestion, and also threw in two pears because I had a few extras that needed to be used. I loved the combination. I also substituted cornstarch for the tapioca called for because that's what I had on hand.
I didn't already have a tried and true family recipe for apple pie so I guess this one will have to do! It's really delicious!
