Apple Pie

I like this Apple Pie recipe because it's a bit different than your classic apple pies.  This recipe includes different fruit juices incorporated into the filling which gives the pie a great hint of citrus taste.  I tried this recipe first but found that the filling was a bit too runny so I altered the recipe a bit and posted it below.

1/8 Cup orange juice

Classic Crisco Pie Crust Recipe

Apple Pie

1) In a large bowl, whisk together sugar, corn starch, orange juice, grapefruit juice, cinnamon, apple pie spice, and nutmeg
2) Add apples and toss gently
3) Make pie crust and line a 9-in. pie plate with bottom pastry; then lightly brush the pastry with 1 Tbsp butter (this helps from the bottom crust getting soggy)
4) Gently pour filling into prepared pie crust; then cut the remaining 1 Tbsp of butter and spread evenly over filling
5) Roll the remaining pastry on top of pie; then cut vents on top of pie
6) Bake at 425F for 10 minutes then reduce heat 350 and bake for 50 minutes or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly
7) Let pie cool then serve and enjoy!
