This Sept. 2015 photo shows deep dish apple pie in Concord, NH. Apple pie ingredients are few and elemental: apples, of course, along with sugar, flavoring and pie crust. But choosing the right apples is a serious business.
With its prep time and lovely blend of mild eggnog flavor and spices, this is dream dessert for a busy hostess! It’s a staple for Thanksgiving and Christmas. In fact, my grown kids request it whenever they come to visit.
Barefoot Contessa's Deep-Dish Apple Pie : Ina Garten uses Granny Smith apples to make this classic apple pie. For her perfect pie crust she uses both shortening and butter; you get flakiness from the shortening and rich flavor from the butter.
