James Hyde and his wife Sue Ling and there son were at my home for James Hyde's birthday and for Canadian Thanksgiving. Some of you might remember James from the Soap Operas such as "Passions", "As the World Turns" and "Sex in the City" in a guest staring role. Every year when we celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving we always celebrate James Hyde’s Birthday which is October 9th. This year we made James one of his favorite desserts which is Dutch Apple Pie. Sometimes I even serve Dutch Apple Pie with warm Carmel sauce on top and with a scoop of ice cream. However, this past Sunday we served it with just whipping cream because we were all so full, from Canadian Thanksgiving. I always try to make this recipe for Thanksgiving because every one loves a good Dutch Apple Pie.
James Hyde's Favorite Dutch Apple Pie
3 Large Lady Smith Apples sliced ( Pink in Color)
3 Granny Smith Apples sliced
3 tablespoons Corn Starch Gluten free
2 teaspoons tapioca pudding Gluten free
1 cup Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice
1 tablespoon cinnamon
Gluten Free home made Pie and Tart Crust or if you would like the easy way out
Pillsbury makes a great Gluten Free Pie Crust
1 Jar of Carmel Sauce (Optional for drizzling on pie)
TIP Of The DAY: I love my apple slicer they are inexpensive and it brings your children in the kitchen with you to help. Plus it is an easy activity to gets the kids involved, and it encourages them to cook with you. I strongly recommend purchasing; I have the Pinzon Apple and Potato Peeler, Corer, and Slicer and I love it!
Take your apples and peel and slice and set aside. then Cut in half if using the peeler and corer.
Serve Warm with Ice Cream and Carmel Sauce or just on its own.
