Bourbon Apple Pake (kind of a Pie, kind of a Cake) is a delicious and Natural Thanksgiving Treat

Posted by

Bourbon and Apples go together like Pie and Ice Cream.  They are one of the 'classic' desserts for the fall - halloween, thanksgiving, christmas.

So here is our take on the classic Apple Pie created for our Cocktail Cake Entertain Kit.

This makes 12.

It uses all natural ingredients.  Here is what you need:

For the filling:

3-4 large apples peeled and diced (1/2 size)

1/4 C sugar

2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp cloves.  You could also use allspice or nutmeg if you desire.

1/4 C flour

1 egg 

2 TBSP Bourbon.  Plain, Cinnamon, Honey or Apple flavor are all good options.

For the crumble topping:

3/4 stick butter

3/4 cup brown sugar

3/4 cup flour

For the Glaze:

1/2 C powdered sugar

1/4 C brown sugar

2 TBSP Bourbon

(OPTIONAL: 2 TBSP meringue powder)

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Prepare your molds and line with baking cups.

Prepare the filling by combining first the egg and flour in a mixing bowl and mixing well.  Then add the apples and the other ingredients.

Why add flour and egg in a pie filling?  Well the apples and sugar create some liquid as it cooks.  This liquid needs to be absorbed and 'gel' otherwise it will be a sloppy mess when you go to eat it in the individual papers.  So the minimal flour and egg used absorbs the liquid and gives the pie (pake) a little structure.

When ready, fill each mold with a dollop or two of the mixture.

Now onto the crumble topping.

Bring the butter to room temperature.  Combine with the brown sugar.  Then add the flour until crumbs are formed.  Add more or less flour to get the desired crumb texture.

Spoon on top of each individual pie.  Then place in the oven and back for 40 minutes or until the tops turn golden brown.

Glaze:

As the pie's bake prepare the glaze.  

In a mixing bowl combine 2 TBSP of bourbon with the brown sugar.  Mix until all the sugar is 'melted'.  Then slowly add the powdered sugar until you a thick consistency.  Optionally add some powdered egg white or meringue powder (helps keep the glaze 'fresh' looking).

Drizzle the glaze on top of each cake after they have had a chance to cool to room temperature.

Enjoy these cakes with your and your family as you celebrate the Thanksgiving, Christmas, Chanukah or other holidays of your faith and heritage.

Cheers
