Apple pie is one of my family’s favorite desserts, and I love to make this in the fall/winter. My five year old daughter Allie will ask me, “Mama, can you make your apple pie for me?”, and how can I say no to that? There’s just something about warm cinnamon apples that just smell up the whole house, and they are the ultimate comfort food. Im using a pre made crust today, but you can always make your own for a even better pie. Hope you like it!
What you’ll need:
- 4 Granny Smith apples
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 tbsp flour
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- pinch of salt
- 2 tbsp butter
- 3 pie crusts
- cinnamon sugar for sprinkling
In a separate bowl, combine sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
Lay these pieces vertically over your pie.
Cut up the remaining pie crust, and begin with your basket weave pattern. You want to lay the pieces down vertically by pulling back every other horizontal strip.
Ta-da! A perfect apple pie. Let it sit for about 10 minutes before cutting.
Serve with ice cream!
Hope you guys liked this recipe, and thanks so much for reading.
