My Very Favorite Apple Pie

20 Aug

Good morning and happy Monday! I had a very busy yet fun weekend shopping and relaxing. I hope yours was just as good!

Today I wanted to share my favorite apple pie recipe… it’s very easy to make and I’ve never had any complaints on the taste!

What You’ll Need:

  • If you’re feeling adventurous, HERE‘s a really great pie crust recipe, otherwise you can purchase 1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie (and HERE is a follow along video for how to lattice your crust! It’s so easy, so you must try!)
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Extra: I always add 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg. Sprinkle it onto the apples right before you add the crust for best presentation!
  • 4 granny smith apples, peeled & sliced

What You’ll Do:

  • Melt butter in a sauce pan and add in flour to make a paste.
  • Add white sugar, brown sugar, and water. bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Place your bottom crust in you pan and fill with apples (mound them as high as you like!!)
  • Sprinkle the cinnamon and nutmeg on top of the apples, if you choose to use these ingredients. Then cover with the top lattice work crust.
  • GENTLY pour the sugar and butter mixture over the crust – be careful that it doesn’t run over the sides!
  • Bake for 15 minutes at 425 degrees and then reduce heat to 350. Continue baking for 35-40 minutes. (if you cover the crust with aluminum foil for the first 15-20 minutes it helps to keep it a nice even brown… but I didn’t do this because I was out of foil and it still turned out fantastic! Just keep an eye on it..)
