I'm not familiar with Cortland apples. What would you use to substitute? We used Granny Smiths in our Thanksgiving pies and I thought they were too tart. Of course, I might have gotten the one pie that had the lemon peel...

Hi Joe. Thanks. The gold dust is actually part of my cake decorating supplies. I have silver as well as many regular colour "dusts". When I am decorating I put a couple of drops of vodka (because it is clear, evaporates quickly and is for the most part odourless) in the cap and brush some dust into it. That way, what is left dries onto the lid and you don't waste it.

It is about $8.00 for approx. half an ounce but that surprisingly goes a long way as you usually just use them for highlighting. Oh, and they are totally non-toxic.

And it wasn't an original idea. I adapted a recipe from a Better Home and Gardens link Pie Susan posted last week.

abcdude, i'll hve to ask my wife. i remember that she no macintoshes or granny smiths. she did mentioned that she chose 3 apples that weren't too sweet or tart, and aren't mushy when baked. sort of firm, middle of the road apples.

uh oh, don't use road apples...

I get it from my cake supply store. Michael's MAY have it, but I doubt it. Though your Michael's may have more cake decorating supplies than ours do here in Canada.

I used it on my suitcase cake to make the locks and corners look like brass. (My cake pictures are on my profile if you don't know what I am talking about).
