Yesterday, I made an apple pie with Gala apples.
The secret to great apple pie using fresh apples? Allow thick apple slices to sauté in sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, butter and cornstarch to release most of the juices from the apples. You only want to release the apple juices so do not sauté on the stove top for too long. Use any highly rated apple pie recipe as a guide for the ingredient amounts and then add to suit your own taste buds. I like cinnamon and sugar.
Spoon only the apple slices into the crust lined baking dish. Bring the remaining apple juice concoction to a boil. Let it thicken, and then pour over the apples in the baking dish. Top with the upper crust and bake.
I love Apple Pie Alà Mode.
