Boiled Cider Apple Pie

Boiled Cider Apple Pie

Using boiled cider in this recipe brings apple pie to a whole new level. The boiled cider adds a depth of apple flavor that is big and bold. I was introduced to this recipe via the King Arthur web site, an incredible resource for bakers.

If you cannot find boiled cider in your favorite grocery store, it is readily available on Amazon
