There is nothing quite like this amazing Whiskey Apple Pie. Its a mix of a pie and your favorite cobbler with a crunchy steel oat crumb topping. I have been loving these steel cut oats lately. My husband bought them by accident (isn’t that always how it goes) and I’m a fan. They have a nice crunch to them after baking and in my opinion it’s everything that an apple crumb pie is missing accompanied by some creamy vanilla ice cream. Now I didn’t get that far with my picture-taking because I simply just couldn’t wait!
Whenever I create any recipe with apples I always use an assortment of apples so you get a nicely balanced taste. For today I used a Granny Smith, Honey Crisp, McIntosh, Gala & Empire. Here it is!
Whiskey Apple Pie Recipe
- 5-6 chopped Apples
- ¼ cup whiskey
- ½ teaspoon cornstarch
- ¼ cup white sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
- ¼ cup dark brown sugar
- 1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
- ¼ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1 tablespoon chopped salted butter
- Extra sprinkles of ground cloves over top of mixture
- Pre-made deep dish crust
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Toss together the 1st 7 ingredients. Place butter on top. Hit with cloves
- 3 tablespoons of cold chopped salted butter
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 2 tablespoons of dark brown sugar
- 1-1/2 tablespoons of steel cut oats
Fork together and then gently combine with your hands. Place over top of the pie and put on baking sheet in case it runs over. Bake at 375 degrees for 60 minutes.
The top will be a warm golden brown that is slightly hard with an ooey gooey caramel like filling surrounding the edge. YUM!Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
