Apple Pie with a Cowboy Twist

Crown Apple Pie

If you know much about this ol' Cowboy, you know I appreciate a little brown liquor, and adding a touch of Crown Royal Regal Apple Whiskey to America's favorite dessert "Cowboyed" it up just right! Y'all give it a try & let me know whatcha think. I'll publish the Perfect Pie Crust recipe in a separate post, so be on the watch for that one!


Double Crust Pie Pastry (watch for post for the Perfect Pie Crust!)

1 Egg, beaten

2 T Water

1-2 t Coarse Sugar

1/2 t Ground Cinnamon


6-7 C Apples, peeled & sliced

1 T Lemon Juice

¾ -1 C Granulated Sugar

3 T Flour

¾ t Ground Cinnamon

¼ t Ground Nutmeg

¼ C Crown Royal Apple


1. Preheat oven to 425°.

2. In a large mixing bowl, combine all filling ingredients and toss well. Set aside.

3. Line a 9” pie plate with pastry dough. Fill with Apple Filling.

4. Roll out top crust, place on top of pie. Seal edges and remove any excess dough. Cut 4-5 slits in the top crust to allow steam to escape.

5. Beat egg and brush top of pie. Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon.

6. Bake at 425° for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 375° and bake an additional 35-40 minutes or until the crust is golden and the apples are tender.

7. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.

8. Enjoy!
