pple pie is one of my favorite things to make around the holidays.
I decided to make this one a little early. I will cool it and freeze it for Thanksgiving. I dont have enough oven space to do this on the big day. Maybe I should invest in a Turkey Roaster so that I can free up more oven space during the holidays.
I like to mix apples in my pie, i like the combo of sweet and tart
2-3 Granny Smith Apples
2-3 Jonagold or Cameo Apples
1/4 cup of flour
3/4 cups of sugar
2 tsp. apple pie spices
2 tbls unsalted butter
Lemon Juice for the apples
Prepared Pie Crust or Puff Pastry Sheets
Then I prepare the sugar,flour, and spice in a bowl and stir to incorporate then mix in with the apples. Set aside while preparing the crust.
I use a prepared pie crust, its easy and tastes just as good as the ones I make, with less hassle. Prep the bottom crust. Then begin to carefully layer the apples. I like to fill the crust nice and full. Then arrange small pieces of the butter along the top. You can also melt the butter and add to the apples and spice mix.
