Apple Pumpkin Pie

Ingredients

  • ½ cup butter or shortening
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • ½ tsp cream of tartar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ cup milk
  • cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1 tbsp arrowroot starch
  • 1 tsp cinnamon, divided
  • ½ tsp salt, divided
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • cup water
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 3 cups Granny Smith or Macintosh apples, peeled, cored, and sliced about 1/8 inch thick
  • ¾ cup canned pumpkin, solid packed
  • ¾ cup evaporated milk
  • cup sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten

Method

Preheat oven to 375. To prepare crust, cut the butter into small pieces; it doesn't have to be cold, but it should not be warm enough to the point of melting. Add the flour, cream of tartar, and sald, beat or mix by hand to combine. Add the milk in a thin stream, mixing until thoroughly blended. Sprinkle a wooden board or counter top with flour, place the dough on the board, and sprinkle the top of the dough with flour. Using short strokes with a rolling pin, roll it from the center to the edges until it is 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick. You will want to turn the dough over and re-dust with flour halfway through. Roll until the crust is about an inch larger than your 9" pie pan when inverted. Fold the crust in half and in half again so that it looks like a triangle. Place it in the ungreased pie pan with the point in the center. Unfold the crust and ease it into the pan. Roll the edges of the overhanging crust under so that you have a nice rim around the pie plate. Set aside.

In a roomy skillet, combine the brown sugar, arrowroot starch, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and 1/4 tsp salt. Add the vanilla, water and butter and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. The mixture will thicken, creating a caramel sauce. Add the apples and continue cooking over medium heat for 4-5 minutes, stirring constantly. Pour the mixture into the unbaked pie crust and set aside. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the pumpkin, evaporated milk, sugar, egg, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and 1/2 tsp salt. Pour over the apple layer. Bake at 375 for 50 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean. Check the crust occasionally; if it looks too brown, cover the edges with foil. Cool completely before cutting. This pie should be refrigerated.

Notes

Apple pie or pumpkin pie? Can't decide? This is the pie for you. A layer of tart apples in a caramel sauce covered with a layer of traditional pumpkin. Add some fresh whipped cream and you're in heaven.
