Jake is one of our Amish neighbors...and he didn't come empty handed...
Before you wonder...no...he didn't bring us a half eaten pie! It just didn't take us long to
This is an Apple Snitz pie...usually just referred to as a Snitz pie around here. It's a pie that the Amish make often, and this one came our way because Jake's son was hosting Church at his house the next day. When you host Church, you also provide lunch, and this is a staple at this meal.
I've never made one of these, but they're quite good. The filling tastes kind of like apple butter. Here's a recipe that I found...
APPLE SNITZ PIE
2 cups dried apples (snitz)
1 1/2 cups warm water
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
Soak apples in water overnight.
Cook apples in the water they were soaked in.
When soft, mash the apples and add the sugar, cinnamon and cloves
Pour mixture into an unbaked pie shell.
Cover with second crust and seal edges, cutting several slits in top crust to allow steam to escape.
Bake at 425 * for 15 minutes. Reduce heat and bake at 370 * for 35 more minutes.
Makes one 9" pie
Have you ever tasted one of these?
I'm trying something new...and linking to Alphabe-Thursday.
