#BakeforACure - Upside Down Apple Pie - #SundaySupper

Besides the pink ribbon, there are other ways to raise awareness of cancer.  One of them is as "easy as pie" - literally. Chantal would like to encourage us all to Bake for a Cure!

  We have the opportunity to work with Chantal Cookware for this fun #SundaySupper event.  The newest product from Chantal is their Easy as Pie-Dish.   This new pie dish simplifies the art of pie baking and it is pretty enough to display in your kitchen. 

Scalloped edges to help make the perfect crust!
Oven, microwave, freezer and dishwasher safe.

 Chantal will be running an on-line promotion during the #BakeforACure event.  The promotion includes a discount coupon code > BAKE4CURE.  The discount will be 20% off all Chantal pie dishes.  The code must be entered at checkout to receive the discount.  The coupon discount code is active October 16, 2012 through October 30, 2012 - so ladies and gentlemen...start your ovens!

Baking is good for the soul, as anyone who loves to bake - or loves to eat freshly baked cookies warm from the oven, can surely tell you.
All the baked goods we are making for this event will be taken to a medical cancer treatment professional or someone who has been affected by cancer.   Count your blessings and bake a pie!
This pie is everyone's favorite.  It looks and tastes like a giant apple cinnamon-sticky bun.

Upside-down Apple Pie
·         2 cups all-purpose flour
·         1/2 tsp. salt
·         6 Tbsp. shortening
·         2 Tbsp. cold unsalted butter
·         5 to 7 Tbsp. orange juice
·         6 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted, divided
·         1/2 cup packed brown sugar
·         1/2 cup chopped pecans
·         1 cup sugar
·         1/3 cup all-purpose flour
·         3/4 tsp. cinnamon
·         1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
·         8 cups thinly sliced peeled, tart apples

·         1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
·         2 to 3 tsp. orange juice

In a large bowl, combine flour and salt; cut in shortening and butter until crumbly.  Gradually add orange juice, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball.  Divide dough into two balls.  Wrap in plastic wrap; refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
Line your deep-dish pie plate with heavy-duty foil, leaving 1-1/2 inches beyond the edge.  Coat foil with cooking spray.  Combine 4 Tbsp. butter, brown sugar and pecans; spoon into prepared pie plate.
In a bowl, combine the sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, apples and remaining butter; toss gently.
Roll out one ball of pastry to fit pie plate.  Place pastry over nut mixture, pressing firmly against mixture and sides of plate.  Trim to 1 inch beyond plate filling.  Fill with apple mixture.

Roll out remaining pastry to fit top of pie; place over filling.  Trim to 1/4 inch beyond plate edge.  Fold bottom pastry over top pastry; seal and flute edges.  Cut for 1 inch slits in top pastry.

Bake at 375 degrees F. for 50 minutes or until apples are tender and crust is golden brown.  Cool for 15 minutes on a wire rack. 

Invert onto a serving platter; carefully remove foil.  Combine the glaze ingredients and drizzle over pie.

  7. I happen to love apples with orange and have a ton of apples. So, guess what goes into my recipes-to-try list? Fantastic pie!

  8. looks great Patricia! Do you bake often for neighbors? Maybe I'll move to your neighborhood! ;)

  9. Mmmmmm....gooey and decadent and full of yummy apples! LOVE this pie! Perfect for #SundaySupper!

  10. This looks so good and the pie plate is very nice, too. I have checked out their site, I like the set of four individual pies, too. xo

  11. I'm sorry to hear about your mom - I can't imagine how difficult it would be to see my mom going through a battle like that. This upside down apple looks absolutely scrumptious. I could almost taste it when you described it as "a giant apple cinnamon sticky bun" - yum!

  12. If it tastes like a hot sticky bun it's for me! Thanks for sharing for #SundaySupper!

  13. This pie looks awesome! I love the crunchy nuts on top.

  14. Oh my, this is one delicious looking pie. I'm drooling just looking at it.

  15. Goodness, my mouth is watering. This sounds amazing. Such a touching post, thank you for sharing this with us today.

  16. So sorry to hear about your mom. I am still fortunate to have me (even if she does drive me crazy).

    As for the pie, I love it! I saw a recipe the other day for an upside-down pie that I want to make. Looks like you beat me to it ;)

  17. Wow!! Apples and pecans and butterscotchy goodness... divine

  18. I love apple pie but I've never tried this luscious version. I am definitely saving this recipe to try.

  19. My mother is my best friend and I would miss her terribly if I lost her. I am very sorry to hear about your mother. But I am glad that cancer did not take her.
    I was wondering how the technicallity of this pie worked but I completely see how you did it with the pastic wrap. Thank you for sharing your personal story and the recipe.

  20. Sorry to hear about your mom. Even 14 years later, I know it has to be hard. Your pie looks incredible!

  21. This looks so good! It does remind me of an apple pastry more than a pie. I could really use a big piece of this right now.

  22. I am sure you have a part of your mom's spirit to keep her right on going. Your pie looks amazing! I'd be slapping some vanilla ice cream on that asap!!! YUM!


Thank you for visiting!
