THIS is the beginning of all things holiday season. I just decided that. Heaven knows every department store and grocery store have been pushing Christmas for weeks now, but I have literally averted my eyes when walking past the rows of tree trimming supplies and twinkle lights. I want to enjoy my Fall. Really really enjoy it. I’m feeling like it’s about half way over and I haven’t done a quarter of the things I wanted to this season but I’m recommitting to doing some of those things over the next couple of weeks.

I’m about to check one thing off the list: Make a BOMB apple pie.

CHECK.

If you are craving Fall like I am, I highly recommend using a combination of red and golden apples and leaving that skin on. If you absolutely can’t stand the thought of skin on your apples, okay…. peel em. But I promise you they get cooked enough that they will just melt in your mouth along with the apple flesh and please take a look at those colors. Does that not look like the edible version of an October drive up the canyon with every shade of red and golden leaf under the sun? It tastes as good as it looks I promise you. And how can it not when you’ve got juicy Autumn apples, brown sugar and spices, and toasted walnuts all heaped in a flaky, buttery pie crust??

Let’s embrace the rest of Fall. Starting with this perfect brown sugar walnut apple pie.

Ingredients

  • 1 flaky pie crust
  • 1 cup Diamond of California Walnuts
  • 4-5 medium apples, cored and very thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • pinch ground cloves (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Press your piecrust into a 10-inch pie pan if it isn't already in one. Bake for 5-8 minutes, set aside.

  2. Place walnuts in a large skillet and stir over medium-high heat 3-4 minutes until nicely toasted (careful not to burn them though). Set aside.

  3. In a large bowl toss sliced apples with flour to coat. Whisk together brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and salt. Stir in walnuts.

  4. Layer half of the apples in the pie crust. Sprinkle half of the brown sugar mixture over the apples. Top with remaining apples, then with remaining brown sugar mixture.

  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes until apples are tender and very easily pierced with a fork. Serve warm as-is, or with vanilla ice cream.

I find myself wondering where you live – like, what state? We in Wyoming should certainly have winter right now, but we’ve sure had some balmy days! I’m sure we’ll pay for it later!!! LOL!!

What a great idea to use up the apples in my fridge, just brilliant!

This pie looks unreal! All of my favorites in one and I love that you didn’t put crust on top. It’s so beautiful. 🙂

Looks wonderful!! Can’t wait to try this recipe. Now for a question…whenever I make any apple pie my filling come out very runny and doesn’t thicken at all. Any suggestions??

Just tried your recipe, it’s in the oven baking now, your pie looked so good I had to try it out for dinner tonight. And to top if off it was so easy to make.

    So happy to hear that! Can’t beat an easy pie am I right?!
