If youre a pie person, or a bacon person, or an apple pie person, or all of the above, youre going to love this. If youre looking for a new pie to help you win friends and influence people, this is it an apple pie with a woven lattice made out of bacon this seasons It-dessert. The bacon cooks beautifully atop the apples, subtly infusing them as their steam keeps the bacon moist and from shrinking. It cooks in the same amount of time as the apples, and turns out tender and totally sliceable a match made in pie heaven. Add a slice of cheddar on top, or shredded and stirred into the crust and youve got yourself pietopia!
A bacon lattice is easy to do. After filling your pastry shell with apples tossed with sugar, a bit of flour, and a shake of cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice, do your bacon weave lay 4-5 slices in one direction over the apples, leaving space between them the width of a slice of bacon.
Weave 4-5 slices in the opposite direction, folding the first slices back to weave them over and under. Dont worry about them being perfect. Tuck the ends of the longer pieces down into the apples, rather than trimming them the bacon will still shrink a bit.
And then all you have to do is bake it no need to cover your pie to keep the bacon from overcooking! Serve it warm if you want to make it ahead and keep it in the fridge, you can warm it in the oven for a few minutes before serving. Make it a very bacon Thanksgiving!
Apple Pie with Bacon Lattice
Pastry for a single crust pie
6 apples, peeled and thinly sliced
2/3 cup sugar
2 Tbsp. flour
2 tsp. cinnamon
8-10 slices bacon
Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a 9 pie plate with rolled-out dough; trim and crimp the edges.
Peel and slice the apples into a large bowl. In a small bowl, stir together the sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt; sprinkle over the apples and toss to coat. Pile the apples into the crust and spread them out evenly.
Place 4 slices of bacon evenly across the apples. Weave the other 4 pieces over and under the first 4, tucking any ends in alongside the apples. Bake for an hour, until the apples are tender, the crust is golden and the bacon is crisp. Let the pie set for at least 30 minutes before slicing. Serves 8.
