Chinese Five Spiced Apple Carrot Pie

  • Details
  • Related Items

Tender carrots are surprisingly sweet when baked in a brown sugar syrup, especially when united with perfect Washington apples and plump little raisin gems. The fresh ginger is a classic pairing with the carrot, and is highlighted perfectly by the Star Anise in our Chinese Five Spice. The all-butter crust recipe I’ve included is a long-time standby of mine, and produces some of the flakiest and best pastry I’ve ever tasted. It will definitely be making an appearance at my Thanksgiving table this year!

    I tried this recipe out this weekend and it’s splended. If I do it again, I’ll parboil the carrots first. Even though I sliced them very thin, they were still a bit too crisp in the finished pie.

      Why not grate the carrots? Not too fine, of course. I’ll give it a try.

      • Sherrie says:

        It’s more of a visual thing – having the carrots cut about the same size as the apples is more visually appealing than if they’re grated. But if they’re grated using the larger size on a grater, then it should look just as good. (Try using different colored carrots, too.)
