Favorite pie dough recipe enough for the bottom of a 9” pan
3lbof apples, green and red
¼ c flour
½ tsp. cumin seeds, toasted and crushed
½ tsp. cinnamon
¼ tsp. salt
3ozgrated cheese, comte, gouda or cheddar
Prepare your favorite pie dough recipe and let it chill while making the filling.
Preheat the oven to 350F.
Peel, core and slice the apples, put them in a large bowl with the brown sugar, flour, cumin, cinnamon and salt, toss together.
On a floured surface roll out the pie dough, I like mine thin, maybe a bit too thin but it’s a lot of apples to fit in one pie. Fold the dough into quarters to help transfer it to a baking sheet before filling.
Dump all of the apples into a large mound on top of the pie dough leaving 2-3 inches around the perimeter. Fold the edges up around the filling and pat down the apples a little arranging a few slices if necessary.
Brush the edges of the pie with an egg wash and sprinkle on the grated cheese.
Bake at 350F for 1 hour or until the bottom of the pie is brown, check it by peeking underneath with a big spatula. I recommend letting it cool a little before serving so the juices have a moment to tighten up.
