Barely Buzzed Apple Pie

Ingredients

Crust:
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon pure cane sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, cut into cubes and kept cold
  • 3/4 cup grated Barely Buzzed
  • 6 to 8 tablespoons ice water
 Filling:
  • 5 granny smith apples, cored and thinly sliced
  • 2 honeycrisp apples, peeled cored and thinly sliced
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 2/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup pure cane sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon clove
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons of cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted browned butter, cooled
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons water

 Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  1. For the crust, place your flour, sugar, and salt in a food processor and pulse just to incorporate the ingredients.
  1. Add the cold butter to the food processor and pulse just until the flour is coated by the butter and has a mealy texture. Then add the cheese and pulse several times until just incorporated.
  1. Remove dough from food processor and add your cold water one table spoon at a time and gently knead the dough into a disk. Keep adding water just until the dough comes together. Wrap with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for at least an hour.
  1. For the filling, place all ingredients, except for the butter into a large mixing bowl and fold together until well combined. Set aside and allow mixture to sit for about 1 hour.
  1. Assemble: Once crust has cooled, divide in half. Cover one half and set aside in the refrigerator. Sprinkle a little flour onto a clean surface and roll dough until about 1/8 inch thick.
  1. Gently fold dough in half and carefully lift into a pie dish and unfold. Press dough into shell, cutting off any excess around the perimeter. Crimp the edge using your fingers and knuckles.
  1. Blind bake your pie crust at 350 degrees for 30 minutes making sure the edges do not start to brown. (Blind baking entails covering your pie crust with a sheet of parchment and then rice or dry beans.)
  1. Pull your pie crust from the oven. Turn the temperature on your oven up to 400 degrees.
  1. Gently fold the browned butter into the apple mixture. Pour filling into pie, forming an even layer.
  1. Roll other half of dough until about 1/8” thick and cut into 10 strips of 3/4″x 11”. Gently lay 5 strips of dough across one direction of the pie, spacing them each even from one another. Form a lattice by arranging the remaining strips through the first strips. Trim the edges and gently press the ends into the crust of the pie.
  1. Whisk together egg and water and brush egg wash over pie. Refrigerate pie for 30 minutes before placing onto a baking sheet and baking for 15 minutes at 400 degrees.
  1. Reduce temperature to 375˚F and continue to bake for about 45 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and filling is bubbling. If the lattice begins to brown before 45 minutes tent with foil and continue cooking.
  1. Remove pie from oven and cool for at least 1 hour. Serve warm.

Barely Buzzed

Unique espresso and lavender hand-rubbed cheese with subtle notes of butterscotch and caramel. Made from the milk of Jersey cows; this is a full-bodied cheese with a smooth, creamy texture. Barely Buzzed is our most popular cheese and is considered by many to be a great American original.

Quality Ingredients

It’s all about the rub. Colorado Legacy Fine Coffee's produces a Beehive Blend of South American, Central American, and Indonesian beans roasted in different styles exclusively for Barely Buzzed. It turns out the love for food and artisan craftsmanship runs in the family. The owner and roaster of Colorado Legacy Fine Coffee is the brother of cheesemaker Tim Welsh.

Our unique espresso blend is then mixed with French Superior lavender buds and freshly ground onsite. The mixture is diluted with oil to suspend the dry ingredients in the rub. Rubbing the cheese produces notes of butterscotch and caramel near the rind, which find their way to the center of the cheese.

Barely Buzzed is aged in our humidity controlled facility and then moved to two different temperatures during the aging process to develop texture and flavor.

Big John's Cajun

This spicy hand-rubbed cheese packs a heated punch as you near the rind. Made from the milk of local Jersey cows in Northern Utah, the combination of sweet creaminess and spice make it a great addition to any cheese plate.

Quality Ingredients

The spice is right! Our Cajun rub was developed by local Ogden, UT chef John Dearmin using only the finest ingredients. Unlike typical Cajun rub, Big John uses cayenne pepper instead of paprika. Sorry, the rest of the recipe is top secret. The spiciness of the rub is a nice compliment to the creamy texture of the cheese. Watch out, this cheese packs a heated punch as you near the rind.

Promontory

As the patriarch of the Beehive family of cheeses, Promontory is an Irish-style cheese with buttery, full-bodied texture and snappy, citrus-like fruity notes.

Quality Ingredients

Promontory, as well as all Beehive cheeses, is made from the milk of Jersey cows from Ogden’s Wadeland South Dairy. Wadeland’s Jersey cows enjoy 350 acres near the salty marshes, ponds and mudflats of the mineral-loaded soil of the Great Salt Lake. The same nutrient-rich soil that feeds thousands of migrating birds, feeds the lush alfalfa that the cows love to eat.

Interesting Fact

Jersey cows are the smallest, and arguably the cutest, of dairy cow breeds. Despite their small size, they produce milk with the highest protein and fat content. Higher fat and protein means the milk is creamier. This is why Beehive cheese crafts such beautifully creamy cheese.
