Sebastian’s Very Own Cookbook - Apple Raisin Pie
When it comes to dessert, are you a pie or a cake person? Well, Sebastian is fond of both :) So we are introducing the first pie of our recipe series – The Apple Raisin Pie from Season 1 of the Episode “His Butler, Strongest”! Let’s be honest here. Who wouldn’t like to wake up to the scent of pie in the air and a certain butler baking in your kitchen? *let the fantasies begin*
For Crumb Topping
To make filling, mix brown sugar, flour, lemon peel and cinnamon in large bowl. Add apple slices, raisins and vanilla. Toss until well coated. Transfer filling to unbaked crust mounding slightly in center For crumb topping, whisk flour, sugar, cinnamon and salt in small bowl. Add butter and rub together well with fingertips until mixture begins to clump together. Sprinkle evenly over pie.
Bake at 375°F on the center rack position in the oven, until apples are tender and crust is golden brown and crisp about 45-50 minutes. Tent pie with foil if browning too quickly. Cool on rack 2 hours. Serve cold or at room temperature with lightly sweetened whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
Are you back from that fantasy yet? Well, start work on this delicious pie and send us your success stories! Afterall this is one hell of a pie!
