Who doesn’t love pie? It’s delicious, buttery, flaky, and sweet. No matter what flavor pie is your favorite, most if not all of them are delicious regardless… especially apple.
One of my favorite pies is apple pie. Recently I found a twist to regular apple pie that I needed to try ASAP, and I’m so glad I did. All you need is some Fireball Whisky.
Apple pie is amazing on its own, but when you add Fireball to it? Oh. My. Goodness.
Here’s what you need:
- Fireball Whisky
- 8 apples (any kind you prefer)
- 4 tbsp. butter
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2/3 cup light brown sugar
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp. nutmeg
- 1/4 cup flour
- Pie crusts
If you want to use a conventional oven, preheat to 350 degrees F. Follow instructions in the video below after putting the pie together if you want to cook it with a Dutch oven.
Peel and slice apples like you would for any other apple pie. Lay them in a shallow dish and submerge them in Fireball. 1960HikerDude uses a whole bottle. Let the apples sit for 4 hours.
Drain the apples and reserve 3/4 cup of the whisky for later. Melt the butter in a large skillet, then add your apples and let them cook down until they begin to soften, about 10 minutes.
Add granulated sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, the reserved whisky, and flour. Give it another mix and cook it down until the mixture is well thickened.
Line a pie pan with pie crust. Spoon in the filling and place another crust on top. Pinch around the edges to seal, then cut some holes to let some steam out.
Bake for 40 minutes to an hour, or until the crust is cooked and golden brown. Let cool completely.
This pie is all of your favorite fall flavors wrapped into one delicious slice. I’m going to be making this all season! If you prefer pumpkin pie, check out the recipe for Fireball pumpkin pie by clicking here.
