Weather wise, I know what's coming. Soon the farm market will close down, the leaves will be off the trees, and the snow will begin to fall. But now is the best time of year for apples. Here in upstate New York we have many, many local varieties from which to choose and today I made a pie with my favorite pie apple, Northern Spy.
This week's Tuesdays with Dorie pick is All American, All Delicious Apple Pie. This is a two-crusted pie (which is how I've made it in the past) but today I decided to use a crumb topping (1 cup flour, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1 tsp cinnamon, a handful of chopped pecans, 1/2 cup buttter cut into the dry ingredients).
The house smelled terrific and the pie was beautiful and tasty. A perfect dessert for a fall day.
