Ingredients

Note: Thaw pie crust in advance

  • 1 frozen pie crust, thawed and baked (I use an all butter free gluten free pie crust from Whole Foods Market)
  • 1 stick butter
  • 2/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 green Granny Smith apples, peeled and thinly sliced
  • Cinnamon and sugar for sprinkling crust
  • 2 T melted butter
  • Good Quality Vanilla Ice Cream (I love me some H√§agen-Daazs)
  • Caramelized Walnuts (store bought or see link above to learn to make your own

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and place rack in center of oven

Crust:

  1. Lay thawed pie crust on a cookie sheet covered with unbleached parchment paper, press flat. Brush pie crust with 2 Tablespoons melted butter. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Bake 10-12 minutes or until crust is slightly golden.

Apple topping:

  1. While crust is baking, peel, core and slice 4 apples. Melt one stick butter in large pan on medium heat. When butter is melted add brown sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon, stir. Add apple slices to melted sugar and simmer on low heat, stirring occasionally until apples are soft, about 6-8 minutes. When apples are soft turn heat off

To Serve:

  1. Cut baked pie crust into 8 triangles and place on dessert plates. Top each crust with a scoop of ice cream, drizzle cooked apples over ice cream. Top with chopped caramelized walnuts and serve immediately. Yum!
