Chefs love to mess with the classics. Here are six takes on apple pie to try for Thanksgiving.
1. Brandy spiked. The former Chez Panisse chef David Tanis flavors his apple pie filling with brandy, orange zest and cardamom, as well as the classic cinnamon.
2. Extra-flaky crust. Instead of the usual pie dough, Alexandria, Virginia, chef Cathal Armstrong uses even flakier puff pastry for his crust.
