Swedish Apple Pie

Here I go with another recipe. Vicki over at Turkey Feathers (see the link at the right) was so kind to site my blog in hers. Mine pales in comparison! She is the creative person I have aspirations of being! I had sent her my recipe for Swedish apple pie. She made it, liked it, and mentioned it on her site. I almost feel famous! Tee-hee! She also took a gorgeous photo of it, if you want to see it. I figured I'd better post the recipe so folks could give it a try. It is easy and it is wonderful...especially served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream! Let me know what you think!?

Swedish Apple Pie

4 cups sliced, peeled apples
2 Tabl. Brown sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
½ cup softened butter
¼ tsp. salt
1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1 egg
1 cup chopped walnuts

Directions: Fill a 9” pie pan with apple slices. Sprinkle with the brown sugar and cinnamon and toss to mix. Mix the butter, sugar, and egg. Cream together with the flour, salt, and nuts. Spread on top of apples (I use my hands to cover evenly). Bake at 350 degrees for 55-60 minutes. I like to serve it warm with vanilla ice cream. I have also doubled the recipe and baked it in a 9 x 13” Pyrex pan. You have to increase the baking time a bit. Makes 6 servings.

Oh I'm so glad you posted the recipe. I wasn't sure if it was a family secret and didn't want to take liberties! It really is one of the best apple pies I've ever made. Thank you again for sharing it with me and now "the world"!
