Honey Apple Pie

Happy Wednesday!

Have you noticed that Thanksgiving arrives earlier this year? Just a little over two weeks left. It’s these weeks leading up to the holidays that can often times be stressful. But it’s also pretty fun. I can already feel the holiday season in the air. Is that even possible? Lol.

I’ve been planning our family Thanksgiving menu for a few weeks now, trying to figure out what we want to keep and what we want to add this year. Brussels sprouts are a must in our house. Mashed potatoes, mac and cheese, pumpkin pie, fruit pie. You know, the classics. Sides and desserts are honestly the best part of Thanksgiving.

With Thanksgiving literally just around the corner, I’m about to share with you a brand new pie recipe: honey apple pie. If you’re a fan of apple pie, I promise you, you’ll love this caramelized honey version too.

Every year, I celebrate my blog anniversary with an apple dessert. So this year, this honey apple pie is perfect for both celebrating 5 years and for Thanksgiving dessert.

I love the crispness of the apples, the caramelized honey, and warm spices that make this dessert so perfect for fall. I want to savor every bite of this honey apple pie. And I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.

Preheat the oven to 400F.

Place a pie crust dough into a 9 inch pie dish and crimp or flute the edges to your liking. Refrigerate the pie crust in the dish while preparing the apple filling.

In a large bowl, whisk together all purpose flour, brown sugar, ground cinnamon, and ground ginger until combined. Add apples sliced into ⅓ – ½ inch thick into the bowl. Mix until all the apples are coated with the flour mixture.

Pour the apple filling into the pie dish and arrange the apples in an even layer so that they will bake evenly. Drizzle honey all over the top of the filling and let the honey fall into the crevices. Refrigerate while preparing the pie lattice.

To create the pie lattice, cut the pie crust into one inch strips. Weave the strips over and under to create the lattice pattern.

Mix together the beaten egg and a tablespoon of milk. Brush the eggwash over the lattice crust. This will help give the crust that golden brown look. Sprinkle coarse sugar over the crust.

Place the pie dish on a baking sheet so that if the pie filling bubbles over, it’ll fall onto the baking sheet instead of in the oven. Bake the pie at 400F for about 15 minutes, then lower the heat to 350F, and bake for an additional 45-50 minutes. The honey will bubble and caramelized, the apples will have softened.

Let the pie sit and cool for about 3 hours so that the filling will thicken before slicing into it. If you slice the pie before it completely cools, the pie will fall apart.
