Irish Apple Pie

Posted by Olga at 2004/3/1 08:40

A delicious apple dessert 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

Preheat 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.

Serves 6.
