Serious Eats: Rationale for pouring boiling water over apples

1 (9 inch) deep dish pie shell

Filling
3 pounds of apples, sliced about ¼ inch thick (I use a mixture of granny smith and honey crisp or gala apples)
2 ½ quarts of boiling water
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon salt

Topping
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
5 tablespoons vegan margarine

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. Place apple slices in a large bowl or pot.
  3. Pour boiling water directly over them. Cover and set aside at room temperature for ten minutes.
  4. Drain apples well and let sit in a colander in the sink, tossing occasionally until completely dry, about 10 minutes.
  5. While the apples are draining use the same bowl and combine sugar, cinnamon, salt, and flour.
  6. In another bowl or in a food processor, mix 1 cup of flour and 1 cup of brown sugar.
  7. Cut in margarine until mixture is crumbly.
  8. Add the apples to the bowl with the sugar/cinnamon/flour/salt along with the vanilla extract.
  9. Toss until the apples are coated evenly.
  10. Spoon mixture into a pastry shell.
  11. Sprinkle the brown sugar/flour mixture over the apple filling.
  12. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.
  13. Remove the foil and bake for another 30 minutes until the top is golden brown.
  14. Cool on a wire rack for at least 2 hours before cutting.

  1. I’m glad everything worked out with your family situation! The holidays are the worst time for family emergencies :( Thanks for sharing your delicious looking pic with me and for being such a loyal follower of my stuff! I appreciate it more than you know.

  2. I’m so excited. I am making this tonight for family Christmas dinner tomorrow. We had a family emergency last weekend and things could have been very bad but we were lucky. We will be celebrating tomorrow instead and I am making this. I will tweet or insta you a picture for sure.
