Apple pie is the ultimate holiday dessert and it’s only ever been available in a couple of flavours: chocolate or cinnamon.
So how can you make one without going overboard?
Here’s how to make the best one you can.
Find out what you want to make: This will give you a basic idea of what you’re looking for.
Once you’ve narrowed it down to a few key ingredients, you’ll need to find out what they’re actually good for.
For instance, if you want a sweet, fudge-like apple pie, you might want to check out these chocolate-flavoured pies.
Cook it up: There are a number of different types of apples to choose from, but you’ll want to choose the one that has the most apples in it.
For this recipe, I’ve used one of the smaller apples, the one with the largest, yellow flesh.
This will help you to get a good flavour out of the apple, so you’ll find that the pie tastes better the more apples you have in it, as the skin will caramelise as it cooks.
Measure out the ingredients: This is the hardest part, but it’s a key part of making a good pie.
You’ll need a good measuring cup and a bowl to measure the ingredients into.
Once they’re all in the bowl, you can then use a spoon or your finger to measure out the apples into the bowl.
Pour the apples in: Once all the apples are in the pot, you’re going to need to pour the apple mixture into the pot.
This is where you’ll start to get some of the caramelising effect of the apples as they cook.
This means you’ll end up with a very rich, dark-coloured apple pie.
Bake it: Once the pie is done cooking, it’s going to look a little bit like this: 5.5 from 1 reviews Chocolate-flavour apple pie recipe Save Print Author: Liz Lyle Ingredients 1 cup apple juice (you can use plain, unsweetened apple juice or puree it)
