Homemade Apple Pie is one of the coziest, homiest desserts I can think of! Fresh, warm apple pie from scratch (with homemade apple pie crust) is the ideal Thanksgiving dessert. This easy homemade apple pie recipe makes it simple to bake a fresh pie for any occasion!
INGREDIENTS & INSTRUCTIONS:
6-8 apples peeled and sliced (we use gala apples, they seem to cook the best)
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1 tsp of cinnamon
2 tablespoons butter
double crust (click for recipe)
Combine sugar, flour and cinnamon;
mix with apples. (I used about 6 apples for my pie plate and only about 3/4 of sugar)
Line pie plate with pie crust. Then pour sugar coated apples into pie plate. Dot with butter. I used 1/2 or 1/4 teaspoon of butter and just put 4-5 smaller balls of butter randomly on top of the apples.
Place second crust on top of apples and butter. Cut a few slits for steam to escape on top layer of crust.
Spread a small amount of milk on top of pastry (I use a fork, when I use a spoon the pastry gets soggy.)
Then sprinkle pie with sugar on milk. This will give the pie a warm and brown look on top.
Bake pie at 400 for 50 minutes. I would put a cookie sheet a rack lower in the oven in case juices overflow your pie plate.
