This year the Thanksgiving pie making/baking was a little more magical, as my daugther Bella helped me every step of the way. Her little sugary hands, and her sweet smile made the process a little sweeter for me. This recipe is so easy to follow.
Making those warm & sweet smelling apple pies doesn’t have to be complicated. Let me share with you my favorite Apple Pie recipe and a couple of shortcuts, so your pie making process will have you baking pies this entire Holiday Season.
*3 lbs. of mixed Apples
2/3 cup of Sugar
2 Tbls. of Lemon Juice
1/2 a tsp. of vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. of fresh ground cinnamon
Pinch of ground cloves
Pinch of ground nutmeg
1 pk. of pie crusts
(already made the pkg. brings 2 crusts)
*This recipe is adapted from The Classic Apple Pie recipe in The Food Network Magnazine Thanksgiving Edition of 2014
Add the cut apples to a pan.
Add the Lemon juice. The ground cloves. The ground nutmeg.
Stir the apples occasionally until they are soft, but still hold their shape.
Remove from heat and allow mixture to cool.
Ease your store bought pie crust dough into a 9 1/2-inch deep-dish glass pie plate.
Add the filling by slowly pouring it into your pie plate.
Lay the top pie dough over the filling and press the 2 crusts together.
Fold the overhanging dough and shaping it with your fingers.
Bake for 55 to 60 minutes in a 375 degree oven.
I love adding butter and sprinkling granulated sugar over the crust at the 30 minute mark. It gives the crust that extra crispy & sweet layer that everyone in my family loves! enjoy!
