OMG March 14th is Pie Day!
The “pie” does not win points on looks (neither do pictures taken at night from the iPhone) but it tastes so yum!
I was already using the oven and decided to throw a dessert together. However, I am pretty lazy and decided not to make a dough. Therefore, I decided to mash up a load of graham crackers to make the crust.
Once again, I apologize for the way it looks. Not very pretty, but oh the yum….!
Apple Graham Cracker “Pie” Dessert
6 crisp apples, cut into half inch squares
1 box of graham crackers, crushed/blendered
1/2 stick of butter, melted
1/2 cup of brown suger
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
2 teaspoons of brandy
pinch of salt
Mash up a box of graham crackers. I mashed and blended around 20 of them to fill and top the 9 inch pie pan. Once it is blended, mix the half stick of melted butter into the graham cracker mash. Press the graham crackers into the pie pan. I used about a third of the crackers for the crust. The rest is used for the topping.
Put into the oven at 400 degrees F for 10-15 minutes till the crust gets a little more crisp.
Peel and cut the 6 apples to half inch squares. I use 3 braeburn and 3 granny smith apples. Mix the brown sugar, brandy, and cinnamon with the apples and throw in a pinch of salt. The crust should be ready and probably should be cooled but I was lazy and just poured the apple filling into it. Coat the apples with the rest of the graham crackers.
I wrapped the edge of the pan with some foil to keep the circumference of the crust from getting too burnt. Place into the oven at 400 degrees F for 45 minutes.
Slice that and take a bite with some vanilla icecream. Messy crunchy yum!
