For our final meeting of the year, the World Spice Cookbook Club is taking on recipes from The Flavour Principle: Enticing Your Senses With Food And Drink. This cookbook, containing recipes from around the world, focuses on the fundamentals of flavor and suggests pairings to complement the unique tastes of each dish. Our second preview features this exceptional umami apple pie, which uses white cheddar in the crust for another delicious sweet & savory pairing.

From the Author: “One issue I have with apple pies is that the apples are not soft and juicy enough. To avoid that, I use several different kinds of apples, some hard and some soft, and precook them for a few minutes to just soften.”

The Flavour Principle: Enticing Your Senses With Food And Drink is the November 2016 selection for the World Spice Cookbook Club. The Flavour Principle is currently available for purchase at amazon.com.

    We made this pie for our 2016 Thanksgiving dessert. We added 1 tablespoon of Kashmiri Garam Masala. It turned out to be the best apple pie we’ve ever had. This was also my first apple pie, so this was a great experience.

    The crust was very flaky but held together perfectly when we sliced into he pie. The filling had the perfect density. It was amazing. Because of my oven temperatures, I placed the parchment ontop of the pie 20 out of 30 minutes during the 350 degree baking to prevent overbrowning the crust. I made this decision becuuase the crust looked almost perfect during the first stage of baking at 425 degrees.

    I also went on utube to learn how to create the perfect pie crust so I knew exactly what the dough should look at at each stage. Great help for someone who has never made an apple pie.

    In the end, our pie looked exactly like this photo! Thanks for posting this awesome recipe.

      You’re very welcome! We love using Kashmiri Garam Masala with apples. (Poudre Douce, too.) And you certainly can never go wrong with apple pie…

    I’ve used Gravensteins for years, always soft, always juicy, never turns to applesauce. They’re so important in our family that we’ve planted a G tree!
