Preparing apple pie for the holidays? It’s definitely a classic, but sometimes you want something a little different. Try one of these variations to make your pies even more mouth-watering!
Using a mix of apples in your pie can really balance out the flavors between sweet and tart. Try Fuji, Gala, Braeburn, and Granny Smith for the perfect mix or experiment with your favorites! For a heartier pie, mix in some walnuts and cranberries.
Adding a little heat in the form of cayenne pepper also helps to wake up the flavor. Try 1/8 a teaspoon to give your pie just a little bit of kick! Can’t get enough cinnamon? Use some red-hot candies for a more intense flavor.
If you haven’t tried a caramel apple pie, you’re missing out! Fill a pie crust with Granny Smith apples and pour butterscotch or caramel ice cream topping over them. Cover with a top crush and brush it with beaten egg wash. Make sure to serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream. You can also drizzle more caramel on top for a truly memorable dessert.
