In honor of Father's Day, here is an interesting recipe that features bacon in a dessert- submitted by Tex-Mex!
Everyone Loves Bacon Apple Pie!
1 Pie Crust
3 Strips Bacon, fried crispy and chopped (I used maple bacon)
6-7 medium to large tart apples, peeled, cored and sliced (I used acombination of granny smith and fuji)
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cloves
2 Tbsp plus 1 tsp cornstarch
1 Tbsp Amareto
1/2 cup REAL maple syrup
6-7 slices bacon, halved lengthwise
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Spread the pie crust in a 9″ pie pan and leave the overhanging edges. Sprinkle the bacon crumbles over the crust. Mix together the apple slices, brown sugar, nutmeg, cloves, cornstarch and Amareto. Spread over the bacon in the pie crust. Pour the maple syrup evenly over the apples. Arrange the strips of bacon over the top of the pie crust in a lattice, then fold the edges of the pie crust over the bacon and crimp. I used a pie crust over the bacon. Bake for 45 minutes or until done.
The perfect mixture of sweet and savory! Enjoy!
