Write a review
  1. 9-inch pie shell, unbaked
  2. 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  3. 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  4. 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  5. 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  6. 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
  7. 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  8. 6 cups 1/2-inch-thick sliced peeled apples (1 1/2 to 2 pounds)
  9. 8-12 slices uncooked Smoked Bacon
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place the pie shell on a sturdy baking sheet and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, rub the brown sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom and cloves together with your fingertips until blended. Add the apples and toss to coat. Dump the spiced apple slices into the pie shell, including any sugar and juices that have accumulated in the bowl.
  3. Weave the uncooked bacon on top of the pie filling, starting from the center and working your way out to the edges. For a lattice topping you should have an over-under pattern with 5 pieces going vertically and five pieces going horizontally. Trim the edges and pinch into the crust to seal. Cover pie with foil and bake in the middle of the oven for 1 hour. Remove cover. Continue baking for 15 minutes until golden brown and bacon is crisp.
  4. Let pie cool for 1 hour before cutting.

The journey down the bacon paved path began with a Valentine Bake Sale at work. Bacon Roses, Bacon Chocolates; and the deluge of Bacon Recipes began. So. Gotta blog all these good bacon scrumptiousnesses and this is just the beginning. The plan is to update the Geeky Food Blog with new recipes and articles of interest.
