For years, my go-to apple pie has been a foolproof recipe from Fine Cooking. I never had much success with double-crust pies, and the leaf cutouts are a good way to fake it. Plus, it makes a beautiful pie.
Still, this version from Baked is pretty good. The filling is cooked down a bit in some brown butter and it’s got a bit of whiskey in it (Bourbon, duh). Mine made a lot of liquid, too much, really, so it bubbled over all into the oven and made a big mess. But the pie, it’s delicious. The filling is great, and the crust is really easy to work with. In fact, this is my second most favorite crust recipe.
