I love to make apple pie, even if it only lasts an hour lol. This is a pretty simple recipe and it only takes half an hour to make, more or less 🙂
What You’ll Need
10-12 normal sized Apples (I prefer red over green, brand doesn’t matter)
1 tbsp Cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1/2 stick of butter/margarine
1 1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp sugar
1 9in Deep Dish Frozen Pie Crust
1/4 cup All Purpose Flour(optional)
make your own crust and fit it in a 9in aluminum pan and let sit 1Hr
1 Rolled Pie Crust (you can find it in the frozen foods or make a second pie crust)
1. The first thing you need to do is prepare everything. Skin all your apples and slice each into 5-8 slices, throwing away the seeds and stems. Cut your butter into 6ths. Cut 2 of those 6ths in half. Lightly dust your panned pie crust with the flour. I find it helps to keep the crust from getting soggy as it bakes, but its on you. Preheat you oven to 400f. Ready?
2. Place your apple slices, 1 1/2 cup sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg into a bowl and mix it together. The sugar will crystalize and it’ll be sticky. Sticky’s good ;D Pour the apples into your pan. It should be enough for it to spread evenly and still be higher in the middle. Place the 4 whole pieces of butter around the top of the apples and shove the smaller pieces into the mix.
3. Carefully place the second crust over the top, it’ll be soft and easy to rip by accident. Rub the milk over the top of the crust and then sprinkle the remaining sugar on it. Feel free to mold the edges of the crust together however you want to. Next week I’ll do a post and different techniques maybe.
4. Place the pie in the oven and bake for 30mins or until the top is a dark golden color. When ready, let sit on the counter for at least 1Hr before refrigerating. It needs to cool for the very least 2Hrs or it’ll still be hot/warm when you cut into it and the apples will slide around as the syrup isn’t thick enough.
You can make up to 2 pies at once just keep an eye on them and everything will be fine.
Feel free to ask questions if you have any!
