Apple Pie with an African Twist!by Tania Wheeler

I just had to let you all in on this yummy recipe sent in by Ava from Apple Pie Recipes!

Amarula Cream Apple Pie

1 Premade Double Crust Pie Pastry

6 Cups Of Chopped Skinless Green Apples

1/2 Cup Of South African Amarula Cream Liqueur

1 Tablespoon Of Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice

1/2 Cup Of  Unfiltered Apple Juice

2 Tablespoons Of Softened Unsalted Real Butter

2 Tablespoons Of Pure Cornstarch

1/2 Cup Of White Granulated Sugar

Serves 8, 445 Calories Per Serving, 12 Grams Of Fat Line a nine inch (22cm) pie pan with the bottom crust layer.


Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F, or 205 degrees C.

Put the chopped skinless green apples, unfiltered apple juice, and sugar in a saucepan and heat the ingredients over medium heat, stirring until the apples become slightly tender.

Next remove the saucepan from the burner, and then thoroughly stir in the South African Amarula Cream Liqueur, lime juice, pure cornstarch, and one tablespoon of butter.

As the pie filling cools stir it continuously until it begins to thicken.

Spoon the thickened pie filling into the pie pan, then cover it with the top crust layer.

Tightly flute the edge of the crust together, then make several incisions in the top of the pie so that it can breath.

Next evenly spread the remaining tablespoon of butter over the top of the pie crust, then sprinkle it with a little leftover sugar.

Bake for roughly twenty minutes, or until the crust is golden brown. Serve it warm. Devine!
