This is a beautifully simple pie, ridiculously easy to put together, and has a spicy apple-custard-ish flavour. You’ll need to make a pie crust (or use store-bought pastry) – I used Smitten Kitchen’s recipe, as I’m going through and making things from her new cookbook. (Pie recipe adapted from here).
pastry for a single pie
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 180C, and roll out your pastry into a greased pie tin.
In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, brown sugar, flour and spices, then whisk in the melted butter, apple sauce and vanilla. Pour the filling into the pie tin, and bake for about 40 minutes until brown and set.
See! How could that be any simpler?
