This Walnut Oil and Gravenstein Apple Balsamic Pie is exactly what you need on a cold rainy day, or any day of the week for that matter! The combination of Walnut and Apple really bring out some amazing fall flavors.
- 8-10 tart pie apples
- Prepared pie crust
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup dark brown sugar, packed
- 1/4 cup Gravenstein Apple Balsamic
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1/4 cup Walnut Oil
- Preheat the oven to 425 F.
- Peel, core, and slice the apples (thinly but not too thinly so they still have substance to them)
- Roll out the bottom half of the pie crust in a 9-inch pie plate. Sprinkle the flour over the pastry and toss in the apples.
- Place the sugar in small saucepan with the balsamic, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Bring to a rolling boil over medium-high heat for 30 seconds and then remove from the heat.
- Whisk in the oil and slowly pour the mixture over the apples, ensuring they are evenly coated.
- Roll out the top crust, place it over the apples, and seal the edges. Pierce the crust with a fork to allow steam to escape while cooking.
- Bake at 425 F for 15 minutes and then turn down the oven temperature to 375 F. Bake for an additional 45 minutes, until the crust is brown and the apples are soft. Let cool completely before serving. Enjoy!
