If you are seeking to enjoy the summer’s balminess from the comfort of your back porch, then try the Apple and Ginger and Pear, oh my! This is one of my favorites. From the very first bite, you get taken away with the combination of sweet fruit, warm ginger, and melted butter between the layers of crust. It is pure bliss.

How to Make Apple and Ginger Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Sweet Butter Crust:
    In your food processor, blend flour, sugar, salt and butter until a fine crumble forms. Add the water and blend again until a soft dough forms.

    Turn the dough out onto a floured work surface. Gently shape it into a disc. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour (can be left for up to one day; freeze for longer storage).

    Remove dough from the refrigerator. (It will be very hard but keep pressing it with the rolling pin until it begins to flatten down) Roll out on a lightly floured surface to a 12-inch circle, about 1/8-inch thick.

    Fit into your 9-inch pie plate. Press the dough down evenly into the bottom and sides. Trim the dough with kitchen shears leaving a ½-inch overhang. Set aside.

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

    Prepare Crumble: In a food processor, combine all the ingredients until the butter has broken down to pea size. Keep in the refrigerator until needed.

    Prepare Filling: Place the apples, sugars, flour, ginger, orange juice, zest and salt in a large glass bowl. Toss to combine. Transfer to a saucepan and cook for 8-10, just until the apples are tender when poked with a fork, but still holds shape.

    Transfer the apples to the prepared pie shell, top with butter and bake for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle the crumb topping over the fruit. Bake for 25 minutes more. Let the pie cool for at least 30 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
