Pie 6

Ingredients

 

PIE FILLING:

  • 7 tart apples, peeled and sliced into wedges ¼-inch thick (about 8 cups of sliced apple)
  • 2 teaspoons fresh ginger, peeled and grated
  • ¼ cup brown sugar, divided
  • ¼ cup cane sugar, divided
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ¼ cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons butter, finely diced
  • 1 egg, whites separated from the yolk
  • 2 Red Vines Gingerbread Twists, cut into 1-inch pieces

PIE CRUST:

  • 1 15-ounce box of refrigerated pie crust (two individual crusts), thawed according to box directions
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ginger
  • ⅛ teaspoon allspice

01. Prep the Apples

 

Place apple slices in a colander and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of brown sugar and 1 tablespoon of cane sugar. Toss to coat the apple slices in the sugar and set them aside to soften for 30 minutes. Drain the liquid and transfer the softened apple slices to a large bowl.

Add the ginger, remaining brown sugar and cane sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and all purpose flour to the apples and stir to combine.

02. Get Going on the Crust

 

Combine the brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, and allspice in a small bowl. Mix thoroughly. Sprinkle some of the cinnamon sugar mixture on a clean work surface and place one of the thawed pie crusts on top of it. Sprinkle more cinnamon sugar on top of the pie crust and use a rolling pin to flatten and press mixture into crust.

Lightly spray the inside of a 12-inch pie dish with cooking spray. Place pie crust in the dish and press to fit the crust flat on the bottom and sides. Layer apple slices in pie dish. Sprinkle the butter pieces atop the apples.

03. Weave the top crust into lattice pattern

 

Sprinkle more of the cinnamon sugar mixture on your work surface and unroll the remaining pie crust. Roll out the crust with a rolling pin so it’s slightly larger than the diameter of the pie dish. Use a knife or pastry cutter to cut the pie crust into strips about 1-inch wide.

Create a lattice pattern with the strips on top of the pie, weaving the pieces up & under one another until the surface is covered. Trim any excess pie crust hanging around the edges of the pie dish and crimp the edges together. Brush the top of the pie crust with egg white.

04. Place the Red Vines Gingerbread Twists

 

Press the Red Vines Gingerbread Twist pieces into the pie crust around the perimeter spaced about 1 inch apart. Put the pie in the freezer to set for 10 minutes. Preheat your oven to 375F degrees.

05. Bake!

 

Place aluminum foil around the perimeter of the pie crust to prevent it from browning too quickly. Place the pie on a baking sheet and bake for 35 minutes. Remove the aluminum foil and sprinkle any remaining cinnamon sugar on top of the pie. Bake for an additional 20 minutes until the filling is bubbly and the top of the pie is golden brown.

Ingredients

Makes 7 Large or 12 Small Cookies

 

SPICED SUGAR COOKIES:

  • 7 tablespoons (93 grams) unsalted butter, room temperature

  • 1/3 cup + 1 tablespoon (83 grams) granulated sugar

  • ½ teaspoon table salt

  • 2 egg yolks

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 cup + 1 tablespoon (148 grams) all purpose flour

  • 2 ½ teaspoon (7 grams) cornstarch

  • ½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

    FROSTING:

    • 1 cup + 2 tablespoons (180 grams) powdered sugar

    • 8 tablespoons (113 grams) butter

    • 1 tablespoon (15 grams) heavy cream

    • 1/8 teaspoon table salt

    • Orange food coloring (optional)

    • *Optional! Feel free to use a pre-made frosting instead.

    DECORATING:

    01. Make Cookie Dough and Cut Pumpkin Shapes

    In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the butter, sugar, and salt. Using the paddle attachment, mix until smooth and creamy—about 3 minutes. You can also do this by hand if you don’t have a mixer!

    Add the egg yolks and vanilla and stir to combine. Add the flour and stir on low speed until all the flour has disappeared into the dough.

    Remove the dough from the mixing bowl and place it on a piece of parchment paper. Place another piece of parchment paper on top and press down slightly. Use a rolling pin to roll the cookie dough out to 1/8” thick between the two layers of parchment.

    Place the parchment-lined cookie dough sheet into the refrigerator and chill for 2+ hours. Preheat the oven to 350F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

    Remove the parchment paper from the top of the cookie dough sheet. Use a pumpkin shaped cookie cutter to cut shapes out of the cookie dough.

    02. Bake Cookies and Let Cool

    Place the cookie dough cut outs onto the baking sheets, leaving at least one inch of space between cookies.

    Press the dough scraps together and reroll them until all the dough has been used.

    Bake for 12–14 minutes, until pale in the middle and light golden brown on the edges. Let cool completely.

    Add ½ of the powdered sugar and mix on low speed until combined. Add the remaining powdered sugar. Mix on low speed until combined.

    Add the cream and orange food coloring, if using. Turn the mixer speed up to medium-high, and blend until the frosting is very light and fluffy—about 5 minutes.

    04. Decorate Cookies with Candy Corn Licorice

    Cut the Candy Corn Red Vines into pieces approximately the same length as your cookies.

    Using an offset spatula or butter knife, dollop a small amount of frosting into the center of one cookie. Spread it around to cover the top of the cookie.

    Place pieces of Red Vines vertically on a cookie, lining them up side-by-side to make stripes on the cookie. Repeat with the remaining cookies.
