There’s nothing more comforting and delicious than a slice of apple pie, and this is the ultimate apple pie recipe
Cooking Tip: The almonds can be ground in a food processor or a pepper mill. Trust that the apples will bake down if you continue to press on them.
Almond Pie Dough
Grind almonds to a fine grain. Transfer to mixing bowl. Add flour, sugar, and salt. Blend with paddle. Add butter and mix until pea-sized. Add water and blend by hand until incorporated.
Mix all ingredients until well combined.
Combine flour and sugar. Add cubed butter and work with hands until crumbly. Refrigerate or freeze in an airtight container until needed.
Cook sugar, corn syrup and water over medium heat stirring constantly until golden brown. Remove from heat and whisk in butter and cream alternately, being careful to avoid bubbles and splattering. Cool and store in covered container at room temperature.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 10-inch springform pan with almond dough and pile apples high into pan. Press down firmly, adding apples until heaping. The apples will cook down and shrink during baking. Top with streusel and bake on parchment lined tray for 2 to 2 1/2 hours or until apples are tender. Serve warm in a bowl with vanilla ice cream and a healthy amount of caramel sauce. Be sure to completely cover all the apples with the streusel topping.
