Yesterday, A la Mode Pies' Chris Porter told us that if he was picking pie for his holiday table, he'd be picking apple pie. So, of course, we asked him for a recipe. French Apple is similar to a Dutch Apple and is very popular with holiday hosts, judging by the pre-orders they've had rolling in.
1 cup of flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup oil
2 tablespoons whole milk
Press flour mixture into pie pan like a crumb crust. Crust will be very moist.
Layer pan with 5-6 sliced Granny Smith apples (depending on size) covered in ½ cup sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon.
