Candy Apple Walnut Pie Recipe

Candy Apple Walnut Pie Recipe

The South is known for apple pies, but this one is not your typical apple pie! The filling includes red-hot candies, and instead of a regular double crust, you simply crumble a frozen pastry shell and sprinkle it over the top. You can peel the apples if you wish or leave them unpeeled.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 50 min. + cooling YIELD:6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • 6 cups sliced tart apples
  • 2/3 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup red-hot candies
  • 1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 frozen deep-dish pastry shells (9 inches)

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the apples, walnuts, red-hots, 1/3 cup sugar and flour; toss to coat. Spoon into one pastry shell. Crumble the remaining pastry shell into 1/2-in. pieces; toss with remaining sugar. Sprinkle over filling.
  • 2. Place on a baking sheet. Bake at 375° for 50-60 minutes or until filling is bubbly and crust is golden brown. Cool completely on a wire rack before cutting. Yield: 6-8 servings.
