It’s never too early to start thinking about holiday baking. Today, I wanted to share with you a recipe that is very near-and-dear to my heart. I first ate this simple tart several years ago at the Plymouth Plantation in Massachusetts, and it’s an old recipe the Pilgrims used! The best part: It’s easily customizable. And I promise the aroma alone will get your household in a festive mood. This pie always reminds me of how blessed I am, and I hope your family has a wonderful end of the year as we head into the holiday season.
2 pie crust (we use premade pie crusts from the refrigerated section of the grocery store)
3 lbs apples or pears (4-6 apple/pear combinations)
1 cup sugar
½ cup currants
1 tsp ground ginger
½ teaspoon ground cloves
½ teaspoon nutmeg
1 egg for egg wash
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour. You want your pie golden brown.
