This pie is a Thanksgiving worthy pie! It is not low points, but worth the splurge on a special holiday!
serves 12-16 ( 12 servings = 11 points +, 16 servings = 9 points +)
- 4 lbs. apples ( I used a mixture of Braeburn and Mackintosh)
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 3/4 c. sugar
- 1/2 c. butter
- 1 c. brown sugar
- 1 ( 14 oz) pkg. Pillsbury pie crusts
- 1 egg white
- 2 T. sugar
Preheat oven to 350. Peel and cut apples into slices no more than 1/2 inch thick. Toss apples with cinnamon and 3/4 c. sugar.
Melt butter in a large cast-iron skillet ( 10-14 inch skillet). Add brown sugar and cook stirring constantly for 1-2 minuts or until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat. Roll pie crust to fit your pan. Place one crust over brown sugar mixture. Spoon apple mixture over pie crust. top with remaining crust.
Brush top crust with egg white and sprinkle with 2 T. sugar. Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour and 10 minutes or until golden and bubbly.
Cool for at least 30 minutes before serving.
