Citrus Apple Pie Recipe

Citrus Apple Pie Recipe

I found this recipe in my early years of cooking, and it's been a favorite of my five children ever since. It's different, zesty and flavorful. I prefer to serve it warm.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 45 min. YIELD:6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • Pastry for double-crust pie (9 inches)
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 5 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons grated orange peel
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 4 cups shredded peeled tart apples (about 4 large)
  • 2 eggs, beaten

Directions

  • 1. Line a 9-in. pie plate with bottom pastry; trim pastry even with edge of plate. In a large bowl, combine the sugar, flour, and orange and lemon peel. Stir in juices. Add apples and toss to coat. Stir in eggs. Pour into crust.
  • 2. Roll out remaining pastry; make a lattice crust. Seal and flute edges. Cover edges loosely with foil. Bake at 450° for 15 minutes. Remove foil; reduce heat to 350°. Bake 30-35 minutes longer or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cool on a wire rack. Yield: 6-8 servings.
