Michelle harvested some apples from her apple tree and Chris also brought some apples to share at the South Arm Cooking Club Seniors. Michelle came up with this simple apple pie recipe with a twist, i.e. using cardamon instead of cinnamon which is usually associated with apple pie. Apple is the original superfood which is rich in phytochemicals which have health benefits to cancer, cardiovascular disease, asthma, Alzheimer's disease, diabetes, weight management and bone health. There goes the old saying "an apple a day keeps the doctor away". Ingredients
- 3 to 4 apples
- 1/4 teaspoon cardamon (or cinnamon)
- 3/4 cup butter
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 egg
- 1 cup unbleached flour
1. Preheat oven to 350F (325 for convection oven).Core, peel and slice apples.
2. Butter a 9″pie plate.Place sliced apples in pie plate.Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon cardamon.
3. Melt butter in a medium saucepan.
4. Stir in sugar.
5. Add vanilla. Cook until all the sugar is melted and resemble a light caramel. Let cool.
6. Add the egg and whisk quickly.
7. Add flour and stir until smooth.
8. Pour over apples and smooth with a spatula.
9. Bake for 40 minutes (30 for convection oven).
