PIE CRUST

  • All-purpose flour, for surface
  • 1 premade pie crust
  • 4 tbsp. melted butter
  • 2 tbsp. cinnamon sugar

 

Heat the grill over medium heat. In a large bowl toss together apples, brown sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt. On a lightly floured surface, roll the crust out and brush with melted butter. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar all over. Cut dough in half widthwise, then cut into 32 – 1” strips.

Make individual lattice crusts by laying 4 strips of crust side by side. Lift one end of the 1st and 3rd piece of crust and lay a 5th piece on top. Lay the 1st and 3rd back down and lift the 2nd and 4th pieces. Lay a 6th piece on top and repeat with 2 more pieces of crust. Repeat to make 3 more lattice tops with the remaining crust.

Cut 4 large pieces of foil about 10” long and divide apples between foil pieces. Place a lattice top on each and roll top and bottom edges of foil to seal. Place on grill and cook until apples are fork tender and crust is cooked 15 minutes. Top with a scoop of ice cream, caramel, and toasted pecans before serving.

History of Apple Pie

Apple pie has a rich history that spans centuries, and it has become an iconic dessert in many cultures. While the origins of apple pie are not definitively pinpointed to a specific time or place, here is an overview of the history of apple pie:

The concept of pies, in general, dates back to ancient times. Egyptians are known to have made pies filled with honey and nuts, and Greeks also had a tradition of making pies filled with fruits.  In medieval Europe, pies were a common part of the culinary landscape. These early pies were often savory and enclosed in a crust that was not necessarily meant to be eaten. Fruits, including apples, were used in pie fillings. The popularity of pies, both sweet and savory, continued to grow in England during the 16th and 17th centuries.

European settlers brought their pie-making traditions to North America, and apple trees thrived in the New World. The colonists adapted and embraced the practice of making apple pies. By the 18th century, apple pie had become a well-established part of American cuisine. The popularity of apple pie grew in the 19th and 20th centuries, and it became a staple in American households. Apple pie has become a traditional dessert for various holidays and celebrations in the United States, especially Thanksgiving. Its inclusion in patriotic imagery and its association with family gatherings further solidified its place in American culture.

Over time, various regional and personal variations of apple pie have emerged. Some people add spices like cinnamon and nutmeg, while others experiment with different types of apples for unique flavor profiles. Additionally, innovations such as lattice crusts and crumb toppings have added to the diversity of apple pie recipes.
