Red wine Apple pie

1 cup red wine

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1 cinnamon stick

1 stick cinnamon

pinch salt

2-3 medium apples, sliced (better to use granny smith)

1 tbsp butter

1 rectangular pie crust (you can make your own or buy it already made)

1. Place wine, sugar, cinnamon and salt in a medium saucepan and bring to boil. Reduce heat to simmer and place apple slices in the liquid. Let simmer gently in the poaching liquid for 5 minutes. Remove apples from the liquid, place in a bowl and let cool. Cover and refrigerate until ready to assemble tart.

2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Roll the crust out on lightly floured surface to 1/4 inch thickness. Top with the apples, coming just 2-3 inches from the edge. Twist the edges to create a little crust. Brush butter on the crust if you want to make it look nice.

3. Bake for 25 to 35 minutes, or until golden brown.

4. Cool completely before serving. Serve with vanilla ice cream, or whipped cream and extra poached apples, drizzle the poaching syrup over the top.
