Homemade Apple Pie

I don’t want to startle you, but Thanksgiving is coming soon. So soon that you may already be searching for a delicious apple pie recipe if you don’t already have one (do you see where I’m going with this?). Well, let me give you a solution: here is a delicious apple pie recipe my friends gave me that is easy as pie (ok, ok, I know that was a little cheesy). But seriously, this is a very simple and tasty apple pie recipe. And not only does this apple pie taste delicious, the aroma of it baking in the oven will have your mouth watering in little time!

A few notes on the recipe: You can make the pie crust using the recipe I’m about to give you, make your own pie crust, or buy one. My pie crust turned out a little tough, but I think that’s because I baked it a little too long. Also, the cinnamon and nutmeg don’t have any measurements attached to them because their measurements go by taste.

Ingredients for the pie crust:

  • 1 lb (450 g) all-purpose flour
  • about 6 oz butter
  • 3/4 cup water

Method:

Combine the ingredients in a bowl and mix until it forms dough. Roll out about 3/4 of the dough and place it into a lightly-greased 8=inch and 9-inch pans. Roll out the rest of the dough and cut it into long strips; set aside.

Ingredients for the filling:

  • 6 cups peeled and sliced apples
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • cinnamon
  • grated nutmeg

Method:

Mix together the apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a large bowl. Pour this into the pie crusts. Then lay the strips of dough from the method above in a ” # ” pattern over the apples.

Bake the pies at 400F for about 30 minutes; then reduce the temperature to 375F and bake for an additional 10 minutes. Turn off the oven and leave the pies inside the oven for about five minutes before taking it out and letting it cool.
