Guess which pie won first prize – and converted many hearts – last night at our party?
Here’s the updated recipe: take the best apple pie recipe you own (for me, it’s from Cook’s Illustrated, and I’m not going to copy it here because the actual recipe is four or five pages long (these people, they care about pie theory)), replace a few apples with browned sausage (this time I chose something sage-y) and caramelized onions (6 or 7 small ones, cooked the day before). Bake as instructed.
Best right out of the oven (which is why I made two last night, so our house could eat one for dinner) with some sharp cheddar melted on top.
P.S. Don’t freak out when the pie dough does weird things – even if the texture is off, it’ll still be delicious!
