Sweet and Savory Apple Recipes
Apples are a super-versatile, budget-friendly, and fiber-packed fruit. We’ve included our favorite low-carb apple dessert recipes (think pies, crisps, and cobblers) and a few apple-infused side- and main-dish recipes, too. Best of all, these yummy apple dishes have been developed with a diabetic diet in mind.

Amazing Apple Tart
Juicy baked apples, a tender biscuitlike crust, and a sweet and spicy sauce add up to this diabetes-friendly dessert. That is truly amazing!…..

Apple-Glazed Chicken with Spinach
A drizzling of lemon-accented apple glaze lightly sweetens the braised spinach-topped chicken in this delightful dish…..

Cherry-Apple Cobbler
Make sure the fruit filling is hot when you spoon the biscuit batter over it. That way, the bottom of the “cobbled biscuit” will be thoroughly cooked…..

Easy as Pie……

Spray a small amount of non stick cooking spray on your knife before cutting a pie with cream filling. This will stop the filling from sticking to the knife. Enjoy that Pie!

Jill’s Pumpkin Pie/Grandma Hittle’s Pecan Pie

Jill’s Pumpkin Pie
Note: For custard style pies I have learned that pre-baking crust partially will give you a nice flakey crust on the bottom. You may also need to cover crust half way through baking pie, to keep from browning. A little extra effort, but so worth it!

Pie Crust (makes 2 – 10” deep-dish pie crusts)

Ingredients:
3 – cups flour, plus a bit more for rolling
½ – teaspoon salt
1 – Tablespoon sugar
¾ – pound salted butter, chilled and cut into pieces, plus a little more softened for buttering pan and foil
1 – egg, beaten
1 – teaspoon cider vinegar or lemon juice *I used half of each.
2 – Tablespoons cream
1 – ice cube

Preparation:

Pre-heat oven to 450°.

In mixer using pastry blender, mix flour, salt & sugar.

In small dish, beat eggs. Add vinegar and cream and mix well. Add ice cube to mixture to keep cold, and allow ice to melt almost all the way.

Add chilled butter to flour mixture until incorporated.

Slowly drizzle in egg mixture.

Remove dough from mixer with floured hands, shape into ball and cut in half.

Press dough into disk shape with your hands and place dough onto floured parchment. Top dough with additional floured parchment and roll out.

Transfer dough to buttered pie pan carefully. Press lightly into pan, crimp edges and pierce the dough randomly with a fine tined fork, about 8 times.

Chill the piecrust for 30 minutes in the refrigerator.

Lightly butter foil and place buttered side down on top of piecrust, shaping foil in piecrust shape without disturbing edges. Fill foiled crust at least half way up with beans, rice or pie weights.

Place in 450° pre-heated oven and bake for 25 minutes.

Remove foiled piecrust from oven and remove foil gently. Return piecrust to oven to allow the bottom to brown, about another 10 minutes.

Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly before filling.

Pumpkin Pie Filling
Note: Because I like a dense pumpkin pie, this recipe will require a longer cooking period. Also, in order to bake both pies at the same time I reversed the higher heat time to end of the baking period. Worked out just fine! Enjoy.

Ingredients:
3 – eggs
1¼ – cup dark, pure cane brown sugar, packed
½ – cup sour cream
½ – cup heavy cream
¼ – cup pure maple syrup
1 – teaspoon vanilla
1 – Tablespoon cinnamon
1 – teaspoon ginger
1 – teaspoon allspice
4 – cups pureed pumpkin or canned pumpkin
*Yams or butternut squash can be used too.

Preparation:

* In mixer beat eggs. Add remaining ingredients in order with mixer running, stopping to scrape the bottom occasionally. Mix until well incorporated.
* Pour pumpkin mixture into prepared piecrust and place pie in a 1” water bath
*helps pie top from cracking.
* Bake at 350° for 75 minutes. Increase heat to 450° and bake for an additional 15 to 20 minutes.
* Remove pie from oven and allow to cool for 2 hours before serving.

 

Grandma Hittle’s Pecan Pie
Ingredients:
4 – eggs
¼ – pound butter, softened
2 – cups dark, pure cane brown sugar, packed
2 – teaspoons pure vanilla
1 – pound pecans, halves or whole *I used 8 oz. of each.

Preparation:

* In mixer, beat eggs. Add remaining ingredients in order and mix well to incorporate.
* Pour into prepared piecrust.
*Look for my note in piecrust instructions.
Optional step: Place pie in a 1” water bath.
* Bake pie in a 350° oven, for 55 to 60 minutes.
*I had to cook for about 15 minutes longer.
* Remove from oven and allow to cool and set for 2 hours before serving.

One of America’s Favorites – Pecan Pie

Pecan Pie

Pecan pie is a pie of pecan nuts mixed with a filling of eggs, butter, and sugar (typically corn syrup). Variations may include white or brown sugar, sugar syrup, molasses, maple syrup, or honey. It is popularly served at holiday meals and is also considered a specialty of Southern U.S. cuisine. Most pecan pie recipes include salt and vanilla as flavorings. Chocolate and bourbon whiskey are other popular additions to the recipe. Pecan pie is often served with whipped cream, vanilla ice cream, or hard sauce.

 

Pecans are native to the southern United States. Archaeological evidence found in Texas indicates that Native Americans used pecans more than 8,000 years ago. The word pecan is a derivative of an Algonquin word, pakani, referring to several nuts.

Sugar pies such as treacle tart were attested in Medieval Europe, and adapted in North America to the ingredients

A slice of pecan pie.

available, resulting in such dishes as shoofly pie, sugar pie, butter tart and chess pie. Pecan pie may be a variant of chess pie, which is made with a similar butter-sugar-egg custard.

Some have stated that the French invented pecan pie soon after settling in New Orleans, after being introduced to the pecan nut by the Native American Quinipissa and Tangipahoa tribes. Claims have also been made of pecan pie existing in the early 1800s in Alabama, but this does not appear to be backed up by recipes or literature. Attempts to trace the dish’s origin have not found any recipes dated earlier than a pecan custard pie recipe published in Harper’s Bazaar in 1886. Well-known cookbooks such as Fannie Farmer and The Joy of Cooking did not include this dessert before 1940.

The makers of Karo syrup significantly contributed to popularizing the dish and many of the recipes for variants (caramel, cinnamon, Irish creme, peanut butter, etc.) of the classic pie. The company has claimed that the dish was a 1930s “discovery” of a “new use for corn syrup” by a corporate sales executive’s wife. Pecan pie was made before the invention of corn syrup and older recipes used darker sugar based syrup or molasses. The 1929 congressional club cookbook has a recipe for the pie which used only eggs, milk, sugar and pecan, no syrup. The Pecan pie came to be closely associated with the culture of the Southern United States in the 1940s and 1950s.

Variations
In his 2004 book, Ken Haedrich identified a number of popular pecan pie variants:

Chocolate pecan tarts prior to baking

Butterscotch
Characterized by the addition of butterscotch chips and brown sugar (in addition to, not in place of, corn syrup)
Whiskey chocolate chip
In this pie, chocolate chips and a few teaspoons of Jack Daniel whiskey are added.
Alice Colombo’s Race Day Chocolate Pecan Pie
This pie is named after Alice Colombo, who was a food editor for the Louisville Courier-Journal in Kentucky. This pie was made by her on the occasion of the Kentucky Derby. The special ingredients suggested in the recipe include cornstarch, to soften the top, bourbon, chocolate chips and whipped cream.

Maple
Includes maple syrup and almond extract

Chocolate brownie
This pie has nuts on the surface and it is layered with chocolate pudding and fudge. It is served at room temperature or chilled.

Sawdust Pie
Sawdust Pie is a signature recipe of Patti’s Restaurant in Paducah, Kentucky, consisting of an egg-batter filling with coconut, graham cracker crumbs and pecans, topped with whipped cream and sliced bananas.
