The name might be a tongue twister, but making this lovely pie is easy as, well....pie! This pie is loaded with tart apples, pineapple, and cranberries, all hugged cozy with a flaky canna crust. This recipe comes your way from our friend Jeff the 420 Chef.
Holiday Humboldt Humble Pie
Ingredients for the crust:
- 1 2/3 cup Unbleached All Purpose Flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 cup Crisco
- 2 tablespoons of LEVO infused butter
- 2 tablespoons grass fed butter
- 1 large egg
- 1 tablespoon buttermilk + 1 tablespoon water
Ingredients for the filling:
- 1/2 cup fresh cranberries (prep the day before)
- 1 granny smith apple, sliced into 1/4 inch thick slices
- 1/4 cup pineapple chunks
- 1/3 cup raw cane sugar
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
Ingredients for sugar and spice sprinkle topping:
- 1 egg white
- 1/4 cup raw cane sugar + 1 teaspoon cinnamon + 1 teaspoon nutmeg (mixed together)
Instructions to prep the cranberries and pineapples:
- Place cranberries and cloves in a large glass bowl.
- In a small pot, simmer sugar, maple syrup, and water (DO NOT BOIL)
- Remove from heat, pour over cranberries, cover, and refrigerate overnight.
- Drain the pineapple and cut each chunk into quarters. Place on a parchment paper lined container (small baking sheet or a plate). DO NOT COVER. Place in the refrigerator overnight.
Instructions for the crust:
- Combine ingredients in a large bowl.
- Using 2 knives or a pastry cutter, cut in the Crisco, butter, and infused butter.
- In a separate bowl, whisk the egg and buttermilk + water together. Sprinkle over the flour mixture.
- Knead together, adding a bit of extra water if needed to make the dough smooth.
- Form the dough into a ball and then flatten into a disk, wrap in plastic, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Instructions for the filling:
- Mix 1/4 cup flower, 1/3 cup cane sugar, and 1 tablespoon of cinnamon in a small bowl.
- Remove cloves and drain cranberries. Dry them by cradling them (over a bowl) in paper towels. Remove any remaining cloves.
- In a large bowl, toss the cranberries, apples, and pineapple chunks with the sugar and flour mixture.
Instructions for assembling and baking:
- On a well-floured surface, roll the crust into a 13-14 inch circle, and transfer it to a round baking dish.
- Pile the sugared fruit in the center of the crust, leaving about 4 inches of bare crust all the way around.
- Fold the crust up over the fruit, pinching or pleating as you go, leaving a few inches of fruit exposed in the center.
- Using a spray bottle or your fingertips, gently wet the crust with water and sprinkle with sugar and spice garnish.
- Bake the pie in a preheated 425°F oven for about 35 minutes, or until the filling is bubbling and the edges of the crust are brown.
- Remove the pie from the oven and let cool for 15-30 minutes before cutting. Best eaten warm, but leftovers (if there are any) will last up to 3 days in the refrigerator.
Pro Tip: Can't get your hands on a gorgeous leaf to garnish with like the one in the title image? Print the image, then gently cut the leaf out of the image to make a stencil. Lay the stencil over the pie and sprinkle with powdered sugar or cocoa powder. Remove the stencil gently and admire your artwork!
