pie and people will show up fast like that? Hello It's Me. Guess what I made an

apple

pie. I'm sure you're dressed you know what there's nothing like

homemade

apple pie and don't be afraid of the

crust

because mine is an

easy

oil

crust

and I'm going to make it first so we'll start with the crust you're going to take two and a half cups of all purpose flour in a bowl and we're going to add two tablespoons of sugar and a half teaspoon of salt, okay everyone just give it a little stir, okay and now I'm going to add a half cup of milk and oil now, I mean I always use 1% milk to keep it low fat you can use whole milk if you want and I'm using extra light olive oil in the mix like this and you stir this with a fork it seems to stir easier with a fork than with a spoon, so you'll see how quickly it turns into a kind of ball.

And how it gets thicker and thicker this is so much healthier than the ones with lard and butter and stuff like that okay so once it starts to take shape we just transfer it to your work surface you don't have to be floured, it's okay. just get all of that out now you can see it's a sticky dough and there's oh this is sticky but the thing is you can press this dough into a pie pan but i have an easier way so let's get it to hold together now this is going to include the top and bottom crust, so we're going to cut it in two. half maybe a little larger in half this looks a little bigger and we're going to shape them both into a five inch disk ok this will be the top crust it's a little smaller just about five inches approximate puck like that okay now we're going to put this this one here on some wax paper and it's going to set that aside for a while okay just fold it cover it okay we're going to set that aside and this it also forms into a five inch disc ok same thing just shape it like this so that's going to be you started the rolling process ok ok the easiest way to do this is to roll it between paper waxed so I'm going to take two sheets of waxed paper one on the bottom one on the top and again like I said you can take this and pat it right on your pan but this is so much easier flourish the waxed paper just a little bit, put this on your floured wax a little bit and n the top so the wax paper doesn't stick this is a big saving for this type of pie crust ok take a rolling pin and just roll like this no it starts to move you can see the wax paper is getting going, this is my little trick, okay, I just take the corners like this and lean into them. lean on it and then you can roll like this it won't go anywhere so you wrote yourself I grab all four corners like this and keep rolling and if the wax paper moves you can pick it up and put it back down and you roll this because the wax paper will give you it will allow and it's 12 inches wide so just keep going until you get to the end of the little bit of extra flour here so we have the end of the edges the width of the wax paper.

Okay, now we're going to put this in the pie pan. I am now using a deep dish cake. pan there are a lot of

apples

in this cake so here's my pan ok now you can this will usually rise like this you floured your waxed paper it will rise if it breaks you can put it back together and just cover this in your pan for cake ok like I said this can be patted it's a very sturdy dough so just set it in place then start patting it like this make sure you poke the holes ok and I just flip ? like this with my fingers and just if there's some air I let it out like this and move on now me You can see this isn't a perfect circle so the nice thing about this kind of dough that you can pat is that you remove the excess like this and it you use to fill in where you don't have any crosses because it's never going to be a perfect circle look so if you can see against her beige in beige I know it's hard to see but there's not enough crust right here so you just take what that you cut and pat it back ok there it is just like you I can see it's not perfect in some places it's lined up nicely some it's a little uneven but that's ok everything will be covered.

I just cut off what was patched extra so it's done it's all done so now we go. to put this in the fridge along with the top which is now that five inch disk we're going to put this in the fridge while we work on the filling but don't put it inside the pan keep it separate these go in the fridge and then we'll do the filling ok so just wipe down your work surface a little bit and make sure you preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and now we're going to make the filling pretty

easy

you also need a really big bowl by the way I'm using a bowl this size and the reason is this recipe uses three

pounds

of

apples

ok these are granny smith apples and they are my favorite apples for apple pie but what I am going to do is gather the dry ingredients first and the reason is once the apples are cut it won't sit around as long and maybe turn brown so in a really really big bowl you're going to put 3/4 cup of sugar and 3 tbsp of t celery and let me show you that this is the tapioca at the minute available in stores if you can't find it you can use flour but I think this is better and the thing reads if you read the package you see it you have to shake it opens here on the side only you cap it cap that open with your thumb and you have to shake it right before you measure it which I did so make sure you shake your tapioca and three tablespoons well and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and a quarter teaspoon nutmeg now I know that It's not much but I don't want this to be a cinnamon pie I want this to be an apple pie where you really taste the apples so that's the dry ingredients and you just mix them well in the big bowl ok so all it's scrambled we put this aside and now we're going to work on the apples three

pounds

of apples when they're really really big like this it only takes about five of them to make a pie so the bigger the apples ace, there's less work, there's less apples to peel and stuff, but it's a bit of a messy job, so if I had gloves I'd wear but I forgot my gloves again if I had them I'd wear them but thanks ok so let's peel them and i have another glove please thanks they are pretty colors but they crumble easily ok so you need it a good vegetable peeler if you have one this is the kind of use let's get to the basics Peel the quarter apples and core them so now my dad used to be able to peel a whole apple like this one piece let's see if i can meet his expectations here i think i can do it look i'm doing it is for you dad okay so every apple is going to be peeled, what I like to do is peel them first because the less bug they are exposed to, the better for the shortest amount of time, so I'm going to peel them. all the apples and then I'm going to cut and core them ok here's the last one so like I said peel all the apples first and they won't be exposed to too much air for too long now take another sharp knife and you do this with each apple, you cut it in half and then into quarters and then you take a little knife and you just core the apple like this, so here's the last one. three pounds of apples like this should make about nine to ten cups of apples and I'll go ahead and measure them just to give you an idea but the slicing is really easy you basically take that big knife again and this is how I do it.

Just oh hello, whoops! look what happened ok so i cut it in half like this and usually a three one two three Now this seems to be about four cups so that's four cups going to go in the bowl and do the rest right so it looks like another four cups is correct, so that's eight cups. this should do as another cup or so you can see the apples didn't get too brown you know because I made the dry stuff first so they don't just sit around and turn brown. You want to do one inch pieces, there's your nine to ten cup apples and now we just stir this up really, really well, you're going to get under and try to cover the apples as much as possible and keep turning almost like you're folding them so that cover them as much as possible.
As it is possible, you know that people have apple pie in different ways. You know, some people have it trendy with ice cream. Some people actually put cheese on the cake. A slice of cheddar cheese on the cake. You know what I had with my cake. Another piece of cake. check by looking at the bottom of your bowl you'll see there's nothing there maybe a couple more turns just make sure the bottom of the bowl is pretty clear but you can see the apples are well covered it doesn't look like it. it's going to fit in the pie pan but it's so I'm going to take it out of the fridge and we'll put together this pie so now you take the pie crust out of the fridge and we're going to fill the pan and this is a bunch of apples and it's going to do a big pile of apples but they will cook so carefully make a big pile here and I always clean the bowl really well and get all the rest of the little tapioca and the juices and it's all good ok so there it is now your ca Right So I could do this with my hands you just have to move it around to fill all the little gaps maybe push it down a bit and it looks pretty good ok now what would normally happen in a lot of recipes. pieces of butter begin to splatter there.
I don't use it, you don't really need it, it tastes great without it, so now it's time to put the top crust on it, okay, let's prepare it the same way. we did the bottom one so i'll put this aside now we're going to do the wax paper and you can't reuse the other wax paper so you have to do this again with another paper ok take that five inch disk put it here flour the top a little bit put the wax paper on top and roll this out the same way you did the other one so you take off the paper on the top left and I'm going to put the cake back here take this off ok from the Same way, it just peels off, put this on top, okay, and again you can patch and fix whatever you can see.
I didn't put it. Never. lay it perfectly straight but do the same thing, cut off any excess here and you can use it for patching and you don't have to fill every hole because they need a little, apple pie needs a little air, you know? a little bit of vent so now I'm going to cut off all the excess there just secure it on the edge and what I like to do instead of the flute I just like to take a fork and give it a little pinch at the end see that so we're going to brush the top with a little bit of milk and this will help the crust brown so just use a soft brush if you don't have a soft one. brush.
I've actually done this with a paper towel like the quarter of the small end of a paper towel, anything just to put a little bit of milk in here. I don't even think maybe half a teaspoon of milk is needed. put it on the edges only on the whole body of the cake but not on the edges because you don't want the edges to brown more t have then they are going to do it so once you put the milk in sprinkle a spoonful of sugar and try again to avoid the edges, so I just cover the edge like this and just sprinkle the sugar along the turn. cover the edge sprinkle it on the same my pie isn't perfect but it will taste perfect that's all that matters ok that's all this will make you have a lovely brown crust ok and try again to avoid the edges. and also make sure you don't have too many apples sticking out here you might want to push these apples down if you have a little bit of apples raised on the edge and I'll show you why in a second that's ok that's ok the last step you have to take a small, sharp knife.
I don't like to do this with a fork. I like a sharp knife and it pokes a dozen little slits into the cake and I like to poke and twist it a bit just to get some air in there as the purpose of this is so you don't steam those apples they don't get turn into applesauce they need a little bit of ventilation so I just poke around and that's why this is okay because it already has some openings so I just do a few little dabs like that a dozen and then I also take a little bit outside from the center I cut like a small I don't make a half inch circle off center to let the steam out so the apples hold their shape and now it's ready for the oven so there's one more thing to do and I'm going to put a ring of cake here and this is going to protect the edges because it's a hot 400 degree oven it's going to protect the edges from burning if you don't think these are like five bucks if you don't have one you can make one out of aluminum foil , but it's not easy now you can see why I said push down the apples because if you have apples sticking out on the edge the ring will siton top. the ring to sit on and cover that edge, ok now it's ready for the oven in just in case it spills because it can spill, place it on a baking sheet like this. made last night of course I had to make another one because it takes 50 minutes to bake at least three hours to cool down so if you are tempted to cut the cake before it is really done or if it is a bit runny then do this thing called a pie door and fit it to wherever you cut your pie and once it's cut just put this in there and it pushes the filling back and holds it in so that's ok ok now this is my take on apple pie I got this theory and listen to me you have apple pancakes for breakfast you have your flour you have your milk you have your apples my cake has flour and milk and apples apple pie for breakfast you know I'm right all right here it comes I have no idea what to expect here, look at this look oh my god look at this look at those apples its the most amazing apple pie ever look at it i tell you people tell you you can you can do this you saw it wasn't that hard the crust is never easy a can ever buy anything like this anywhere at breakfast time oh i think we can all agree that everyone's favorite comfort food is macaroni and cheese but you don't have to eat the one on the box with my recipe it only takes 20 minutes to make a creamy delicious pot macaroni and cheese and mine low fat no butter and only four ingredients would you rather be more handsome or know how to make perfect hard boiled eggs ok i can help you with the eggs i'll go to show you how to make perfect, foolproof hard boiled eggs with no green ring easy to peel every time
