Recipe: Apple Pie

Apple pie is one of those All-American classic that not many people make these days unless their entering a county fair. It’s so simple, I have no idea why people don’t make more pies!

This is the pie I made with my nephew. It's not as pretty as a blue ribbon pie you'd see at the county fair, but that's ok, it's the time spent with your family and taste that counts!

My nephew and I made a super yummy apple pie. It was really easy, I gave him the title of “Mr. Mixer” and he mixed the apples and sugars and spices as I chopped the apples and added them to the bowl.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 box of frozen pie crust dough, thawed (each box contains 2 crust doughs)
  • 5-6 medium sized apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
  • 3/4 Cups Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Flour
  • 3/4th Teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1/8th Teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
  • 1/4th Teaspoon Salt
  • Lemon Juice (optional, but it really helps keep the apples from getting brown)

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease your pie pan, press your pie crust dough to the bottom and sides. Poke the bottom dough with a fork to prevent it from bubbling.

Peel your apples, slice them and mix them with your other ingredients. Pour your apple and sugar mixture in the bottom crust and top it with the other crust dough. Cut slits in the top for the steam to escape.

Bake for 40-45 minutes or until the crust on top is a golden brown. Let it rest for 2 hours before serving.
