Apple Jack Pie


I like to cook liquor into my sweets. I am especially excited about it when I can use something locally made. Tom's Foolery in Chagrin Falls makes an awesome Applejack! It can be hard to track down because it sells fast when it hits the shelves, but I often find liquor I am having a tough time getting my hands on at Minotti's.

Pie Ingredients:

1 Pie Crust - I went for store bought this time. Wasn't trying to take all day to make my pie. :) 5 Apples (your favorite baking variety) 1/3 cup Granulated Sugar 1/3 cup Brown Sugar 1/3 cup Flour 1 tbsp Cinnamon 3 tbsp Applejack

Streusel Topping Ingredients:

1/2 cup Flour 1/4 cup Quick Oats 1/4 cup Brown Sugar 1/4 tsp Cinnamon 1/8 tsp Salt 1/4 cup Butter, cold and diced into cubes


Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, toss apple slices with Applejack. Add sugars, flour, and spices to the bowl and toss to coat. Spoon apple filling into chilled pie crust.

In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, quick oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt. Add cold butter and using fingertips, rub butter into dry mixture until it comes together it small crumbles and pieces of butter are no longer visible. Sprinkle on top of the apple pie filling and bake for 35-40mns or until bubbly and brown.
