American Modern: Apple Pie Shots with Pistachio Crumble Recipe

July 2, 2014   |   by Gourmet Food World

Is there any dessert more quintessentially American than a classic apple pie? This crowd-pleasing dessert is the perfect way to pay homage to America on Independence Day (or any other day!). The height of apple season isn't until the fall, but apples are (thankfully) available all year-round, so you can make this summery version of the patriotic pie for 4th of July.

For our version, we deconstructed it and took the pie out of its shell, layering the different elements and presenting it in modern, individual size glass jars. You can use small jam jars, mason jars, or even shot glasses for this apple pie crumble. Instead of a classic crumble, we added meaty pistachios for a great crunchy texture. You can top it off either with ice cream - a la mode - or whipped cream, depending on how hot the weekend gets!

Your pistachio crumble should be buttery, crunchy and just a bit salty. Once it's done, break it apart with your hands into coarse pieces, and make the crumbles as big or as small as you want. If pistachios are not your thing, you could easily substitute for a finally chopped macadamias (yum!), thinly sliced almonds, or just a regular crumble.
