Foodie Friday Apple-Custard Pie

Hi Friends!!  Okay, I have to say that this pie is full of calories, but it is easy and DELISH!!!!
It is seriously the best apple pie I have ever sunk my teeth into!  AND it's so good that my son requests this for his birthday every year! 
I originally saw this recipe on The Food Network while watching Emeril one day probably 12+ years ago! I have a coveted hand written recipe from the show and I LOVE it! 

Apple-Custard Pie
Pillsbury ready made pie crust - the kind that you roll out found by the biscuits in a red box.  - Emeril made his own..whatev!  :)
1 T plus 1/4 C sugar
2 T butter
1 C brown sugar
1/2 t plus 1/8 t cinnamon
6-8 apples, peeled, cored, and sliced.  I like to use tart Granny Smith's
1 C heavy cream
1 egg
1/2 t vanilla

Preheat oven to 350'.  In a large saute pan, over medium heat, melt the butter.  Stir in the brown sugar and cook for 1 minute.  Add 1/2 t cinnamon and apples.  Saute for 3 mins.  Prepare deep dish pie pan by spraying with oil and putting crust down.  Remove apples from heat and turn into the pie pan.  Put the top crust on and pinch edges together tightly.  cut a 1 inch circle in the top of the crust.  This is going to be where you pour the custard later.  Separate the egg yolk from the egg whites and use the white to brush the top of the pie crust.  Use the 1 T sugar to cover the top crust.  And bake for 15 mins at 350'.
In a mixing bowl, whisk the remaining 1/4 C sugar, cream, yolk, cinnamon, and vanilla.  Pour the custard through the hole in the pie.  Place back in the oven for 30 minutes.  Let cool completly.  Enjoy!!!
Oh, it is a good idea to put a baking sheet under the pie to catch any splash from the custard and also sometimes the pie bubbles over if the edges aren't crimped tight.

Here are some pics of my son's bday! :)
