Swedish Apple Pie (A Crustless Apple Pie)
We finally understand the old saying, “As easy as apple pie.”
We love apple pie but we can’t say we’d ever consider it “easy”. Not that apple pie is really difficult to make but there is pastry to be made and chilled and rolled and crimped. Swedish Apple Pie, however, is different. It really is simple. It’s a bit like a “dump it” cake in that you simply mix the topping ingredients in a pot, pour it over the apples and bake. The result is a rich and delicious pie that is really quite effortless.
We have been baking Swedish Apple Pie with local Cortland apples but any good pie apples will do. Be sure to use a deep-dish pie plate.
Tip: Combine apple varieties in your baking: When cooking with apples, mix and match varieties to get the best combination of flavors and textures. Some apples break down more easily when they cook, like McIntosh, and others hold their structure better (think Cortlands). By combining different varieties in a pie you’ll be able to combine flavours and textures.Print
