Recipe and A Movie: Apple Pie + Mirror, Mirror

Monday, October 7, 2013

I know I had promised to make pretzel bites for the film Field of Dreams but since I'm still trying to figure out a great recipe I thought I would share a very nice and easy apple pie to go along with the film Mirror, Mirror.
Mirror, Mirror is based on the classic fairy tale "Snow White" but with a few comedic turns which I totally love. I was surprised of how I really liked this version, plus Armie Hammer's voice is just perfect and priceless.

The first thing that pops into my mind when I think about Snow White is that juicy red apple and since apple season it's upon us, I thought it would be perfect to make a classic apple pie to go along such a classic fairy tale.

Pie Crust Recipe by Martha Stewart
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
2 sticks cold unsalted butter, cut into little cubes
1/4 cup ice water

(I didn't use a food processor to make the dough, I did everything by hand and worked perfectly!)
In a food processor, combine flour, salt and sugar; pulse to combine. Add butter; pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal, with just a few pea-size pieces of butter remaining. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup ice water. Pulse until dough is crumbly but holds together when squeezed with fingers. Transfer half of dough (still crumbly) onto a piece of plastic wrap. Form dough into a disk 3/4 inch thick; wrap tightly in plastic. Refrigerate until firm (about 1 hour). Repeat with remaining dough.

Apple Pie Filling
5 Granny Smith apples (peeled, halved, cored and sliced)
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons cinnamon
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon cold butter, cut into cubes
2 teaspoon milk
2 teaspoon sugar

In a bowl, add the apples, brown sugar, flour cinnamon and lemon juices; combine everything well. Pre heat oven to 450 degrees. On a floured surface, roll out the dough. Line a pie plate with the dough and trim the excess. Roll out the remaining disk on a floured surface. Place apple mixture and sprinkle the little cubes of butter on top and cover with the dough. Trim the excess dough hanging, the press the bottom and top dough together to seal the edges. Brush the top of the pie with milk and sprinkle a little sugar. Place a pie plate on a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes until golden in color. Reduce the temperature to 375 degrees and bake for another 40 minutes. Remove from oven and let it cool before serving it. Enjoy!
