I’ve made this Caramelized Maple Apple Bacon THC Pie a handful of times now, and while some edibles lose their luster, this particular cannabis dessert has only gotten better. I’m never not shocked by the level of flavor and immense decadence that this humble pie can deliver on such a consistent basis.
Listen, I understand that even saying “Caramelized Maple Apple Bacon THC Pie” is a bit daunting, but I assure you, this recipe is the furthest thing from difficult. Even the most inexperienced cannabis chef can follow along with these simple instructions, and in a short matter of time, they’ll be left with a truly delicious “dank cake” that they can share with all of their stoner friends and family. Now, for this recipe, you’re going to need a decentamount of ingredients. And, in an effort to make things easier, I went a headand divided up the specific lists of items, to hopefully make it even simpler to follow.
- First, preheat your oven to 400°. Then, grab a baking sheet, and place your bacon on top of it. Follow that up by sprinkling roughly a tablespoon’s worth of brown sugar over the bacon.
- Then, when your oven is ready, toss that bacon inside to crisp. Which, in my experience, takes anywhere between 10-20 minutes.
- Meanwhile, grab a 9” springform pan, and line that sucker with your pie crust pastry. Once you’ve done an adequate job with that, toss the whole thing in the fridge for the time being.
- Next, grab a mixing bowl. In it, combine your lemon juice and apples. And really take your time tossing these elements amongst each other to fully coat each apple.
- Now, in a big skillet placed over “Medium-to-Low” heat, you will want to melt ¼ cup of your cannabis-infused butter. When that melts, add in ⅓ cup of brown sugar, as well as your maple syrup.
- Bring all of that to a soft boil, then kick the heat back down to let those ingredients simmer for another 5 minutes. When the mixture is reduced by about half, you can move on with the recipe.
- At that point, you will want to gradually toss in your apples, and give them a good stir, in order to fully coat them. Then, keep cooking these apples until they get some color and start to soften up a touch. That, typically, only takes 5 minutes or so. When that happens, take the apples out, and return them to their bowl, but leave their deliciously dank syrup in the skillet.
- Then, grab your vinegar, and stir it into that sweet, sweet syrup. Let those ingredients simmer amongst each other for another 5 minutes. When you see the syrup is reduced and matches the consistency of “maple syrup,” you can then take it off the heat, and pour it over your apples in the bowl.
- Let those ingredients rest for 10 minutes.
- Meanwhile, in a food processor, combine your salt, cinnamon, baking powder, ¼ cup of cannabis-infused butter, ¼ cup of brown sugar, and all-purpose flour. Keep that pulsing, until the contents develop a crumbly consistency and texture.
- When you see that, you can break up your bacon, and start adding that to your food processor, bit by bit. Once all the bacon is added, pulse up the contents again, to reestablish that delicious crumble consistency.
- Now, slowly distribute your apples into the pie crust that’s been chilling in the springform pan. Be sure to fold the dough over a portion of the filling, in order to create a sturdy edge. Also, take your fingers, and crimp the edges tightly.
- Next, apply a healthy layer of your deliciously dank crumble over the apple filling.
- Then, take your cream, and brush the crust with it, before topping the whole thing off with white sugar.
- At this point, you’ll want to toss it back in the oven, and let it bake for about 60 minutes. When the juices are starting to bubble and the crust is a traditional golden-brown, you can remove it from the oven, and place it on a wire rack to cool, before cutting yourself a slice, and digging in!
