Big Loo’s Famous Robot Pie Recipe

 

 

Here is my famous Robot Pie recipe with special “Big Loo Style Ala Mode” topping.  It has been a very long time since Mama Bot would make me a Robot Pie, mostly on my birthday or other special occasions.  If someone wants to be really nice to me, I would love to come to over to your house for a slice of Robot Pie.  It reminds me of growing up on the Moon and takes me back to that special place that only food and family can bring.  I guess this is what you call comfort food!  The ingredients are not that hard to find.  A trip to the supermarket and a swing by the industrial supplies store is all that is needed. Yum, Yum!

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  • Stir the raisins, apples, orange zest, orange juice, and apple cider together in a pan.
  • Simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until apples are very soft, about 20 minutes.
  • Stir in the sugar, cinnamon, cloves, and soda crackers until well blended.
  • Refrigerate until ready to use, or pour apple mixture into the prepared pie crust.
  • Top with the second crust.
  • Pinch and crimp edges to seal the crusts.
  • Pierce the top crust in several places with a fork.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes.
  • Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), and bake until top is golden brown, about 30 minutes more.
  • Remove pie from oven and place on baking rack.
  • Carefully sprinkle Magnesium shavings on browned crust.  This is the “Big Loo Style” Ala mode feature.
  • Turn broiler on and slide pie into oven with fire extinguisher at the ready (this is important).
  • When Magnesium starts to lite off, remove pie before explosion occurs.
  • Cool before serving.

  1. My Dearest Big Loo. Oh honey, I would love to have you over for a slice of Robot Pie! You have been in my family since a very special Christmas morning when I woke up to open your giant Moon Robot box. If Robot Pie is what will bring memories of Mama Bot back to you, I will try really hard to find those Magnesium shavings!

    Cheers,
    Tanya from Tarzana
