Pioneer Country Pies


Autumn apples are the mainstay of these pies from two good Utah cooks. One has a traditional double crust and a fragrant hint of orange, the other a streusel topping. Both have festive embellishments.

For either pie, choose Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, Jonathan, McIntosh, or Winesap apples. Newtown Pippins are also a good choice for the double-crust orange pie, but they don't get juicy enough to bake well in the tapioca-thickened, streusel-topped pie.

Orange Zest Apple Pie 2 3/4 to 3 pounds apples

2 teaspoons grated orange peel

3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon each ground cinnamon

and ground nutmeg

Pastry for a 2-crust 9-inch pie,

rolled to fit pan

1 tablespoon butter or margarine

1 egg

Orange sauce (recipe follows)

Peel, core, and thinly slice apples into a large bowl and mix with orange peel. Stir together brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg; add to apples and mix well. Line a 9-inch pie pan with I round of the pastry. Pour apple mixture into pan, patting to compact slices and mound in center. Dot fruit with butter, cut into small pieces. Lay remaining round of pastry over fruit. Trim pastry to within 1/2 inch of pan rim and fold edges under, flush to rim. Flute edges to seal; or press together, then scallop with the cupped side of a teaspoon.

Combine pastry scraps, roll out, and cut into decorative shapes. Beat egg to blend, brush lightly over top of pie, place decorative pastry pieces on pie, and brush them lightly with egg. Slash pastry in several places so steam can escape.

Bake pie in a 3750 oven until crust is a rich golden brown, 45 to 55 minutes. Cool on a rack, then serve warm or at room temperature. If made ahead, cover loosely and let stand in a cool place until next day. Cut into wedges and top with orange sauce to taste. Makes 8 to 10 servings. Carol Whitecar Bountiful Utah.
