    Title: Bacon Apple Pie
    Categories: Pies, Desserts, Fruits, Pork
    Yield: 6 Servings

    Pastry for a 9" pie; store
    - bought OK
    3/4 c (packed) brown sugar
    2 tb Cornstarch
    1 ts Ground cinnamon
    1/2 ts Fresh grated nutmeg
    1/2 ts Ground cardamom
    1/4 ts Ground cloves
    6 c Cored, peeled, sliced sweet
    - apples; 1/2" thick
    8 sl (to 12 sl) uncooked thick
    - cut applewood-smoked bacon

    Set oven @ 350ºF/175ºC.

    Place the pie shell on a sturdy baking sheet and set

    In a large bowl, whisk the brown sugar, cornstarch,
    cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom and cloves together until
    blended. Add the apples and toss to coat. Dump the
    spiced apple slices into the pie shell, including any
    sugar and juices that have accumulated in the bowl.

    Weave the uncooked bacon on top of the pie filling,
    starting from the center and working your way out to the
    edges. For a lattice topping you should have an over-
    under pattern with 5 pieces going vertically and five
    pieces going horizontally. Trim the edges and pinch into
    the crust to seal.

    Cover pie with foil and bake in the middle of the oven
    for 1 hour. Remove cover. Continue baking for 15 minutes
    or until golden brown and bacon is crisp.

    Let pie cool for 1 hour before cutting.

    Makes a 9" pie (6 servings the way I cut it)
