Bourbon Apple Pie Recipe

Ingredients:
2 1/2 lbs. apples
1 cup sugar
1 tblsp. sugar
3 tblsp. flour
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. ground ginger
6 tblsp. butter
1/2 cup Bourbon
2 (9 inch) pie crusts
1 orange, zest of large orange
1 egg

DIRECTIONS
1.Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Peel and core the apples. In a large bowl mix sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and apples. Toss to coat evenly.
2.In a wok or large skillet over medium heat, melt butter and add apple mixture. Cook until apples start to soften and brown slightly, about 7-10 minutes. Reduce heat to low and add bourbon (you can use brandy instead). Simmer down to a light syrup, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and add the orange zest.
3.Put one pie crust into a 9″ deep pie dish. Add filling. Slice the second pie crust into 1/2″ strips. Lattice the top using the strips and using a basting brush coat lattice with egg wash (beaten egg plus 1 tablespoon of water). Sprinkle evenly with tablespoon of sugar.
4.Bake at 400 degrees F for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake for 50 more minutes. Keep a cookie sheet on the oven rack below to catch any spillage from the pie.
