APPLE PIE or CRISP? by MARISSA
I got invited for dinner in Surrey two weeks ago and the main course, Pasta Amatriciana was a novelty for me – quite good actually. The host asked if I would like to have Apple Pie for dessert and she will make one if I can stay longer. But I said, “Won’t it be too much work?” Marissa assured me it was easy to do.
This pie came with a twist. It has condensed milk – very non North American. Marissa happens to be a Pilipina and condensed milk is a popular ingredient in a number of Philippine sweets. And yes, the pie was easy and quick to make. I think it is more of an Apple Crisp.
Marissa said I can share the recipe in my blog, so here it is:
1. Use 1 ½ cup Bisquick Mix as the dough base in a 2” or higher round baking pan. No need to line the sides of the pan.
2. Slice 5 green apples (Granny Smith) or any tart variety to desirable chunk sizes you want to bite into later. My preference is close to ½ inch cubes.
