Victory Pie

A warm piece of pie, right out of the oven, with a powerful aroma of apple, almond and cinnamon is the perfect dessert for celebrating our victory. The Giants have won game 7 and became the world champions for the 3rd time in 5 series, thanks to Madison Bumgarner and his golden arm!

It was scary when we lost game 6 but they always say a blowout loss is better than 1 less, or maybe I just made this up! Either way, I had a rough day at work yesterday and only a win could cheer me up so with that thought in mind I picked up the ingredients on my home, already assuming the victory. It seems my 6th sense was right on and they did a great job. Now, it’s time to get ready for Halloween festivities.


For those of you who already have tried my blueberry-almond pie, this is almost the same recipe only with more apples.

  • 1 box (7 oz) almond paste
  • 1 unbaked 9″ pie shell, chilled
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup uncooked oats
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped almonds
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon, divided
  • 6 tablespoons cold butter, 1/4″ pieces
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 7 apples, peeled, sliced


  1. Pre-heat oven to 375°F.
  2. Shape Almond Paste into flat disk. Roll out to 9” disk, between 2 sheets of wax paper
  3. Press disc into bottom and the sides of the pie crust and refrigerate
  4. For topping mix flour, oats, brown sugar, almonds, and half of cinnamon. Cut butter into mixture and blend with a fork until crumbs are formed
  5. For filling mix sugar with remaining cinnamon, toss with apples, and pour into the crust
  6. Spoon topping over apples. Bake 50-60 minutes or until golden brown
  7. If the top is browning too quickly, loosely cover with foil
