Paper Bag Apple PieFrom food_devil 5 years ago
- 6 large baking apple (Jonathan or Rome are my favorites for pie, or Granny Smith) shopping list
- 1/2 cup sugar (use 3/4 cup if apples are very tart) shopping list
- 2 T flour shopping list
- 1 T lemon juice shopping list
- 1 tsp cinnamon shopping list
- 1 9" or 10" unbaked pie crust shopping list
- topping: shopping list
- 1/2 cup sugar shopping list
- 1/2 cup flour shopping list
- 1/2 cup butter shopping list
How to make it
- Preheat oven to 425 f.
- Peel, core and slice the apples. Sprinkle with lemon juice and toss with 1/2 c sugar, 2 T flour and cinnamon.
- Pile into piecrust.
- MIx Flour and sugar for topping and cut in butter using a pastry blender, two knives or your fingers until crumbly.
- Pile evenly on top of apples.
- The original recipe call for placing the pie in a plain (no print) brown paper grocery bag, rolling the edge a few times and securing with a paper clip and placing on a cookie sheet to bake.
- Some people have concerns about that; toxic glue, recycled paper containing contaminants, etc so a safe alternative is to use baking parchment:
- Take two large pieces and place crossways to each other on a cookie sheet.
- Place pie in center and bring ends of paper together over pie, fold down (not too close to pie- give it some breathing room) and secure with paper clip.
- Prepare the pie whichever way you feel comfortable with and place in preheated oven. Bake 55 minutes then uncover and bake another 5 minutes or until brown.
- (The paper may char a bit around the edges but that's ok. I once caught the bag on fire when I was baking it in a very old gas oven, the kind you had to light each time and fire would flare up out of the vent in the bottom once in while. I put it out right away and the pie still turned out great!)

This is definitely unusual and worth a try! saved!greekgirrrl in Huntington Village loved it
Years ago, I made an apple pie in a "brown paper sack", and it truly was delicious!
I have had concerns about the safety of the modern day sacks, and have not made it again.
However, the parchment paper is an excellent idea...morerosemaryblue in CollegeTown loved it
