Last Minute Valentine’s Day Idea: A Heart Shaped Homemade Apple Pie

I’m not a big fan of Valentine’s Day.  I don’t think you need a date on a calendar to remind you to tell someone you love them.  I’m especially not fond of spending $5 on a paper card only to have it thrown in the trash, or paying big bucks for a bouquet of cut flowers that will die in 3 days.

But dessert… I like dessert.  So if you’re not a huge “buy me crap to show me you love me”  kind of person, how about making your someone special a heart shaped desert.  After all, everybody has to eat.  Right?


8 Granny Smith apples, peeled,cored and sliced
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, sliced
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 egg {for egg wash}
1 package store-bought or homemade pie crust
cinnamon & sugar to sprinkle over the top of pie

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  In a large bowl combine apples, butter, flour, sugar and cinnamon. Toss to coat apples. Pour mixture into a prepared heart-shaped pie pan lined with a pie crust. Cut a large heart out of the second crust and gently cover apples and crimp edges.  Apply egg wash, sprinkle cinnamon sugar over the top and bake 45-50 minutes or until juices are bubbling and crust is lightly browned.  Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
