Apple Dumpling Pie
This pie features whole apples - it reminds me of a pie version of old fashioned apple dumplings! YUM!

standard 9-inch pie
Double Crust Pie Crust for 9-inch standard pie
homemade or store bought
Granny Smith Apples
light brown sugar
Optional for Filling:
chopped nuts (pecans
Optional for Topping Pie:
half and half or cream
I used coarse sanding sugar
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. (I used my KitchenAid Countertop Convection oven with 1 oven rack in the lowest position.)
Mix together the butter, salt, sugars, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg. (I used the KitchenAid 3.5 cup Chopper for this.)
Peel and Core apples (or alternately use KitchenAid Spiralizer to Peel, Core and Slice but still keep whole.)
Place the whole apples in a bowl or on a platter and drizzle with lemon juice to help keep from browning.
Fit the bottom crust in pie plate and arrange apples in bottom crust and fill the sugar mixture in and around the apples. If adding raisins and nuts, sprinkle these in and around the apples as well.
Place on the top crust, trim excess (if necessary) and crimp the edges. Cut a few small slits to release steam while baking.
If desired, whisk together egg and milk to make an egg wash. Brush this on top crust and sprinkle with coarse sugar. I placed my pie on a 12” flat pizza pan to catch any drips.
Bake at 400 degrees F. for 40-45 minutes. Rotate once or twice throughout the baking process. If crust starts to brown too much, cover loosely with foil. Let cool until just warm before cutting.
