Home Made Apple Pie with Bacon

Home Made Apple Pie with Bacon

Posted 2016-06-14 by finyfollow

I love bacon, and love mixing it with other ingredients, and here I have made an apple pie, and added bacon to the top!

The result is different to an ordinary apple pie, naturally - however I think it was even nicer. The sweet and the savoury go very well together especially with a dob of fresh cream on the top.

Preparation Time: 45 minutes plus fridge time
Cooking Time: 35 minutes
Makes: 6 servings

For the pastry
2 tbsp iced water
1 large egg yolk
1¼ cups plain flour
1½ tbsp sugar
Bit of salt
125 g unsalted butter

For the filling
1 tin [link http://reviewclue.com.au/apple-pie-filling-by-duncan-hines/ apple pie filling]
2 large apples, peeled, and chopped into small slices
¼ cup coconut sugar (or caster sugar)
1 tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp nutmeg
1 tsp lemon juice
Bit of butter
About 6 - 8 slices shortcut bacon (or 3 - 4 bacon rashers)

  • Make the pastry by lightly beating the egg and cold water.

  • In a large bowl, add the flour, sugar, pinch of salt and stir until well combined.

  • Add pieces of the butter and mix until the mixture is coarse.

  • Slowly add some of the yolk mixture, kneading before you add it all as you may not need it all.

  • Form into a ball, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.

  • Preheat the oven to 200°/180° fan forced.

  • Meanwhile, mix the apples with the sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and lemon juice.

  • When the pastry is cold, spray a pie dish generously, particularly up the sides, and press the pastry into this. I did not use all of it as I do not like thick pastry, and therefore made it as thin as possible.

  • Bring it up the sides and on the edge of the pie dish, as this will later be folded over.

  • Add the apple mixture and smooth slightly.

  • Dab a few slices of butter over this.

  • Cut the bacon pieces in half lengthways, and weave as much as you like on the top of the apple.

  • Bring the extra pastry over the edge as per the photo.

  • Bake for about 45 minutes or until the bacon is crispy, by which time the apples will be nice and soft.

  • Cool for about 10 minutes before serving.

  • Serve with a dollop of cream to make it even nicer!
