* I'm including directions for a gluten free pie crust. If you are not in need of a gluten free crust, I have also made this all-butter pie crust recipe and I loved it.
German Apple Pie
recipe adapted from cbsop.com via The Blond Duck
6 medium apples, peeled, cored and sliced, I used granny smith apples
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour, I used brown rice flour
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 cup heavy cream
(1) prepared pie crust (gluten free pie crust recipe here)
Press the pie crust into the bottom of a deep 9" pie plate. Crimp the edges (if you are feeling fancy) or simply smooth the edges until they are relatively smooth. Whisk together the dry ingredients and sprinkle over the apples in a large mixing bowl. Stir to coat all the pieces and then place the apples into the pie crust. Pour the cream over the apples and bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes. Reduce the heat to 350 degrees and bake for an additional 55-60 minutes. Cool completely before serving. Enjoy!
