Let me tell you something about my love for apple pies – it’s almost illegal! But you know what’s even better than apple pies? Homemade apple pies with an easy oil crust, oh yeah!
And guess what? I’ve got the recipe for you! But wait, let me warn you, it comes with a moonshine recipe too, just because I’m feeling extra generous today.
First up, let’s talk about the apple pie. Now, picture this – crispy and flaky crust wrapped around warm, gooey apple filling with dashes of cinnamon and nutmeg. It’s a foodie dream come true, my friends!
To get started, we need to make the easy oil crust. It’s straightforward, affordable, and quick to make too. Here’s what you’ll need:
– 2 cups of all-purpose flour
– 1/2 cup of vegetable oil
– 1/4 cup of whole milk
– A pinch of salt
Sift the flour and salt together in a bowl before adding the oil and milk. Mix it all up, and you’re done! Simple, right? Now, roll it out flat and line your pie dish with it. Remember to leave some extra dough for the crust’s edges.
Next, grab five medium-sized apples, peel and slice them up. Arrange the slices in the pie crust, and sprinkle cinnamon and nutmeg over them.
For the top crust, cut the remaining dough into strips and create a lattice. Bake the pie in the oven for around 45 minutes at 350°F, and voila! You’ve got yourself a homemade apple pie that’ll impress your guests and tingle your taste buds.
But wait, there’s more!
Now, let’s talk about that moonshine recipe. Trust me; you won’t have tasted anything like it before. Here’s what you’ll need:
– One gallon of apple cider
– One gallon of apple juice
– Three cups of white sugar
– Two cups of brown sugar
– Three cinnamon sticks
– One liter of grain alcohol
Combine the apple cider, apple juice, white sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon sticks in a large pot, and bring it all to a boil. After the sugar dissolves, allow the mixture to cool, and remove the cinnamon sticks.
Once it cools down, add the grain alcohol and distribute the apple pie moonshine into Mason jars.
There you have it, folks; decadent homemade apple pies and moonshine made with apple cider, cinnamon, apples, and a few other secret ingredients that I won’t mention here. Trust me, you’ll thank me for this recipe later. So, grab your apron and let’s get baking!
