Apple season is upon us! This new take on apple pie is simple because you don’t even have to worry about making a crust. You also pretty much just mix everything together, put into a pie pan, and bake. This tasted like something familiar I think it’s the cinnamon and apple flavors together. If possible I would highly recommend using toasted walnuts, it adds really great flavor. Your house will smell really nice after baking this. I cut back on the sugar, as usual. This recipe is adapted from Taste of Home.
Swedish Apple Pie
¼ c sugar
½ c flour
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
½ tsp ground cinnamon
¼ tsp vanilla extract
2 (187g) medium tart apples, chopped (I’m lazy and didn’t peel the apples, it still turns out great)
¾ c chopped walnuts or pecans, toasted
In a large bowl, combine the sugar, flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. In a small bowl, whisk egg and vanilla. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in apples and walnuts. (Mixture will be dry and crumbly)
Transfer to a 9-inch pie plate coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350º for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Serve warm.
