Apple Ginger Pie with Gingerbread Crust

With Red Vines® Candy

Pie 6




  • 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


  • 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.

06. Cool and Serve


Allow the pie to cool at room temperature for at least an hour before slicing and serving.

Graham Cracker Gingerbread House

Graham Cracker Gingerbread House

Graham Cracker Gingerbread House

With Sour Punch® and Red Vines® Candy

graham cracker gingerbread house with candy


  • 6 graham crackers

  • 1 cup of powdered sugar

  • 1 tablespoon of meringue powder

  • 2 tablespoons of warm water

01. Prepare Graham Crackers and Make Icing

You’ll need a total of six graham crackers to build a graham cracker gingerbread house. The two graham crackers you’ll use for the roof will remain whole (A). To make the sides of the house, use a serrated knife to gently saw off the ends of two of the graham crackers. You’ll make the cuts halfway between the middle and the end of each (B).

To make the front and back, repeat the cuts you made for the sides of the gingerbread house. Then, make diagonal cuts at one of the long ends to form peaks (C). Discard the tiny triangles you slice off.

To make the icing, whisk the powdered sugar and meringue powder together in a bowl. Drizzle in the water and use an electric hand mixer to whip for 5 to 6 minutes, until stiff peaks form. Transfer the icing to a piping bag fitted with a round tip.*

02. Assemble Gingerbread House with Icing

Set a piece of sturdy cardboard on your work surface. Apply icing to the long edge of a B piece and press it firmly into the cardboard until it stands up on its own. Apply icing to the side and bottom edges of a C piece and attach it to the B piece while pressing it down into the cardboard. Repeat with the other C piece.

Use icing to attach the other B piece to the cardboard and the front and back pieces. Finally, apply icing to the diagonal edges of the C pieces and attach the roof. Allow the frosting to dry and harden for at least six hours, or overnight.

03. Make Roof Shingles with Sour Punch Bites

To make the roof shingles, spill a bag of Sour Punch Assorted Bites onto a large cutting board and cut the pieces in half crosswise. Spread a layer of frosting on one of the roof pieces and apply the Sour Punch Assorted Bites in an alternating color pattern. Repeat on the other side.

Apply a few dots of icing on the top of the roof, where the two side A pieces meet at a peak. Trim a Red Vines Grape Twist to fit the length of the roof and press down lightly.

04. Decorate Gingerbread House

Get creative with decorating the rest of your graham cracker gingerbread house! Use Red Vines Sugar Free Strawberry Twists to outline the edges, more Sour Punch Assorted Bites for windows, and Red Vines Jumbo Twists for the front pillars.

*Note: Do not use store-bought frosting for this recipe. It will not dry and harden enough to keep your graham cracker gingerbread house sturdy for decorating.
