Easy Open Faced Apple Pie

Growing up, I spent a lot of time cooking and baking with both sets of my grandparents, and have really enjoyed making pies from scratch. I am so excited to share with you my apple pie recipe.

Having a 6 month old I have less time, so for the first time in my life I used premade crust🤣🙈

We have an apple tree in the back yard, and my family farm has a couple trees that give lots of apples in the fall, so I have found dozens of ways to cook and use them–but making an old fashioned apple pie has always been my favorite.

For this recipe, you will need 6-8 cups of apples, peeled and sliced into small pieces. I have a 16 slice apple slicer that I love to use.

For the pie crust, you can use a premade crust, or combine 1 3/4 cup flour, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 cup vegetable oil, and 2 tbsp water to make your own crust.

To make the filling you will take the apples and mix in a bowl with 2 tbsp lemon juice, 1/2 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup flour, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp nutmeg, and a 1/8 tsp salt.

Bake at 450 degrees for 20 minutes, cover the crust edges, and bake for another 20-25 minutes.

Some people really like a top crust, and if that’s you, you can use an egg wash to help get a golden brown color.

Glass baking dishes are prefered when making this pie. They do not need to be greased!

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving 🦃
