Apple pie is all I could think of. The air is nice and crisp early in the morning and late in the evening. The leaves are turning into this beautiful golden color, the sweaters are coming out of the closet. A great cup of coffee or tea with some apple pie is the perfect ending to a great day. It can be enjoyed after a great meal, or sitting in your favorite chair and enjoying a quite moment.
Here is my family favorite. As soon as they see me coming home from the store with extra apples, their faces light up as they know what they will get to enjoy.
From my family to yours, enjoy!
1 Pastry crust – I use Pillsbury
3 large eggs
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 large apples, peeled, cored and sliced
½ to ¾ cup heavy whipping cream
Preheat the oven to 400°. Roll out the pie crust in a 9 inch pie dish. Make sure the crust is all the way up to the rim. Poke lightly the dough and place in the hot oven for 5 to 7 minutes.
Remove and let it cool off.
In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, heavy cream, vanilla extract and the brown sugar.
Add the sliced apples to the pie dish. Cover with the egg mixture.
Place a pie shell shield to cover the border of the dough or make one with aluminum foil.
Lower the heat to 375°. Bake the cake for 40 to 50 minutes. The top should be nice a golden brown, and the middle should not be runny.
