Apple Pie

Apple pie in the making

It's that time of the year apples are in here's the first apple pie recipe.... It's simple and delicious. In keeping with the simple nature for this pie I used a store bought pie crust. In later post we'll explore several different homemade crusts.

Simple Apple Pie

2 pie crusts
3/4 Cup sugar
2 T flour
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
1 T lemon juice
3 pats butter
6 medium apples, peeled and sliced thin (granny smith or combination of apples)

Preheat oven to 425.
Place bottom pie dough in 9 inch pie pan. Combine all other ingredients except apples and lemon juice. Gently toss in apples and lemon juice. Dot with butter. Top with second crust and bake at 425 for 40-45 minutes.

TIP: Use an apple peeler to make the peeling fast and fun & if you want to be adventurous try fresh nutmeg it really make a difference just grate some in.
