Sin is In Apple Bacon Maple Pie
Printable recipe here
Pie crust of your choice (homemade or store bought)
14 slices Bacon (10 slices for the top weave and 4 to cook and crumble)
reserved bacon grease
8 granny smith apples
Squeeze lemon juice
1 tsp cinnamon
½ cup maple syrup (give or take)
¾ cup brown sugar
½ cup flour
¼ cup white sugar
springform pan (or a deep dish pie plate)
Roll out a thicker bottom pie crust than you normally would. (you want a substantial base for all the apples and bacon.) Chill the pie crust until ready to use.
On a piece of parchment, construct a weave of bacon. Place in a cold oven and turn oven on to 300F. Let the bacon weave bake away until slightly crisp but not overly crispy as it will continue to cook on the top of the pie.
