Irish Apple Pie
A delicious Irish Apple Pie from Ireland. The pastry is not as
firm as regular pastry. Be sure to GREASE the pie pan.
- 2 cups hot mashed potato
- 1 tablespoon butter or margarine
- 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon ginger
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 4 cups thinly sliced apples
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon melted butter or margarine
- 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
- Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
- Combine potato, butter, cinnamon, ginger and brown sugar. Mix
well. Blend in flour. Reserve 3/4 cup for top of the pie.
- On a sheet of wax paper or, better still, parchment paper, pat
the remaining dough into a circle slightly larger than a 9-inch
pie plate. Place a well-greased pie plate over dough. Lift and
invert the dough into the pan. Remove wax paper. Arrange apple
slices of potato mixture. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons brown
sugar. Pat remaining 3/4 cup of potato mixture onto a 9-inch
circle of wax paper. Invert over filled pie. Peel off paper,
crimp and seal edges of dough around pie. Cut a vent in the center of the pie.
- Bake 45 to 50 minutes.
- Brush top with 1 teaspoon melted butter and sprinkle with granulated
sugar a few minutes before removing from oven.
- Serve hot with whipped cream.
