Irish Apple Pie

A delicious Irish Apple Pie from Ireland. The pastry is not as firm as regular pastry. Be sure to GREASE the pie pan.

Ingredients

Pastry

  • 2 cups hot mashed potato
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

Filling

  • 4 cups thinly sliced apples
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

Topping

  • 1 teaspoon melted butter or margarine
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Combine potato, butter, cinnamon, ginger and brown sugar. Mix well. Blend in flour. Reserve 3/4 cup for top of the pie.
  3. On a sheet of wax paper or, better still, parchment paper, pat the remaining dough into a circle slightly larger than a 9-inch pie plate. Place a well-greased pie plate over dough. Lift and invert the dough into the pan. Remove wax paper. Arrange apple slices of potato mixture. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons brown sugar. Pat remaining 3/4 cup of potato mixture onto a 9-inch circle of wax paper. Invert over filled pie. Peel off paper, crimp and seal edges of dough around pie. Cut a vent in the center of the pie.
  4. Bake 45 to 50 minutes.
  5. Brush top with 1 teaspoon melted butter and sprinkle with granulated sugar a few minutes before removing from oven.
  6. Serve hot with whipped cream.
