This apple scoop pie offers an easy way to fill your house and tummy when you’re longing for the smells and tastes of fall. Baked in a pie plate with no crust to contend with, apples mingle with juicy raisins and spices to provide the perfect dessert (or even side dish!).
Today’s recipe for Apple Scoop Pie is an exclusive from my cookbook, Come Home To Supper!
My mother said that developing this recipe was one of my greatest accomplishments in life – I’m pretty sure that’s a good thing!
This is also good served over ice cream or a slice of pound cake, and leftovers keep really well in the fridge to make an excellent topping for your oatmeal that next morning!
You’ll need: 5-6 medium apples (such as Gala), pecans or walnuts, raisins, brown sugar*, cinnamon, and allspice.
* Dark brown sugar or light brown sugar? Use whatever you have on hand.
Chop up your apples into bite size pieces, you don’t even have to peel them.
Dump everything in a bowl.
I love recipes like that….
Stir until well blended and apples are coated.
Why yes, that is a Pyrex Cinderella Bowl I’m using! It is a yellow Amish Butterprint pattern in case you were curious 🙂
Dump everything into a deep dish pie plate. You don’t even have to grease it.
You can grab a piece of two of apple if you want, it’s even good now!
Cover with foil.
Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Remove foil and bake until apples are tender, another 15-20 minutes more.
Serve warm on it’s own, over ice cream, or over a piece of pound cake. Leftovers keep well inthe fridge and are excellent over oatmeal.
