Apple Pie

Apple Pie with Cider Ice Cream

This is another of my favourite recipes.  I just got fresh, fresh, Ontario apples at our market and they were outstanding in this pie.  I heard on a radio program once that most of the apples we can buy in our supermarkets are at least four months old by the time they hit the shelf.  I know apples keep if properly stored but it sure makes a difference if you can source some fresh apples in season from an orchard or market near you.

This pie uses my Easy Pie Crust recipe and the filling is generous.  I was afraid that my top crust was going to be too thin by the time I got it big enough to cover the mound of filling but it forced me to roll it out thinly and it was wonderful.

I like this recipe because it cooks long and at a bit lower heat.  Often pie recipes start the first 15 minutes at 425 degrees and then reduce to 350 or 375 degrees. I find my crust is always too brown when I do this.  With the even temperature on this bake time my crust was a light golden brown.

You will want to bake this with a pan underneath to catch any juices.  There is so much filling in this pie you will definitely need it.

I served it with Apple Cider Ice Cream for a double apple hit!

Apple Cider Ice Cream

Apple Cider Ice Cream

This is a great ice cream flavour for fall! It goes well with apple pie, cobblers or crisps. This uses heavy cream and egg yolks so it is quite rich.  You only need a small amount to satisfy!

Instructions
  1. Combine apple cider, sugar and cinnamon stick in a sauce pan over medium heat. Bring to a boil and simmer until it is reduced to 2/3 cup. This may take 25 minutes or more.
  2. Remove from heat and remove cinnamon stick. Stir in milk and then cream. Mix well. Then add the cinnamon and egg yolks. Whisk until well incorporated and smooth.
  3. Return sauce pan to medium heat and cook, stirring often until the mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. This may take about 20 minutes. Pour custard through a fine strainer to a medium bowl and cool.
  4. Refrigerate until chilled (a couple of hours at least).
  5. Process chilled custard in your ice cream maker according to machine's instructions. Transfer to a storage container and freeze at least 4 hours.

Cinnamon Ice Cream

Cinnamon Ice Cream

I don’t know why there isn’t a commercial version of Cinnamon Ice Cream (at least there isn’t in Canada that I have ever seen).   It is such a  perfect partner for apple pie, peach pie, berry crisps, cobblers.  In fact – I had Cinnamon Ice cream in an upscale restaurant years ago and when I couldn’t find any in the store that is what prompted me to go out and buy an ice cream maker.  It sounds kind of decadent to have an appliance so specific to one thing but what is nice is you can control the healthiness of your iced product – low fat frozen yogurt, sherbets, ices, and yes – even margarita mix!
