More About This Recipe

  • This is the second post in our Apple Series. If you missed it earlier this week, see the first one, Homemade Applesauce, and watch for more coming soon!

    There is something about saying you made a pie that almost without fail leads to reactions of "Oooh, really? What kind?" Homemade Apple Pie. Good 'ol apple pie this time. And then you dig in, breaking through the crispy, flaky crust and stabbing a bit of sweet, tender apples. It's irresistible.

    Before you know it, you and your guests are eying the pie, not wanting to be the first to suggest a second helping. Just go for it.

    I love my apple pie fresh from the oven, while it's still piping hot. That way, which a scoop of vanilla ice cream, it can have a fabulous hot/cold aspect to it too. Ooooh. Swoon.

    Everyone loves it because it seems like something that takes a lot of effort. The thing is, making apple pie? Not too hard. Especially if you use a premade crust, which I am not afraid to admit that I do. It's easy, fast and almost always creates a perfect pie. Of course, making a homemade crust is great too - but it's just not something I do. (Do you? Convince me I should try it!)

    Do my pie edges look uneven? For sure. Are they perfectly crimped? No way! I like it that way ... it looks rustic, homemade. And either way, it tastes great.

    My recipe for Homemade Apple Pie produces a rich, sweet, apple-y pie that will have everyone wanting to lick their plates. Try it.
