Apple Pie to feed a Crowd….. February 18, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — bakingmommyof3 @ 6:19 am

Apple Pie is one of those universal deserts – almost everyone I have ever met likes apple pie….so the next family gathering you have why not make one large enough to share…..

Cookie Sheet Apple Pie Recipe  (16-20 Servings)

  • Ingredients
  • 6 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1-1/2 cups shortening
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 3/4 cup plus 4-1/2 teaspoons water
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 8 cups sliced peeled apples 
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup crushed cornflakes
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup milk(optional)
  • 1 cup powder sugar(optional)

Directions

  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, salt and baking powder. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Whisk the egg yolks, water and lemon juice; gradually add to flour mixture, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Divide dough in half so that one portion is slightly larger than the other. On a lightly floured surface, roll out larger portion to fit the bottom and sides of a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Arrange apples over crust. Combine the sugar, cornflakes, cinnamon and nutmeg; sprinkle over apples.
  • Roll out remaining dough to fit top of pie; place over apples. Seal edges; cut slits in top. Bake at 400° for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°; bake 20-25 minutes longer or until golden brown.
  • Let pie mostly cool then mix 1/4 cup milk (plus enough more to make a thin glaze) in 1 cup powder sugar.  Drizzle over the top of the pie.(optional)
  • Yield: 16-20 servings.

 

 

The only thing we did differently is that I make apple pie filling and can it – so we used the homemade canned filling….a jelly roll pan and we skipped the glaze….Next time I would only change one thing and that is to double the apple filling using my canned….it was good just needed a little more apple to go w the crust…..
