Thanksgiving is tomorrow, so I decided to share an apple pie recipe, to celebrate! I was intimidated to make this for the first time (so intimidated that I was fussing over what type apple peeler I would need), but it was actually very simple! This only takes about 15 minutes to prep, and 45 minutes to bake, so in an hour you will have a warm, tasty apple pie that will make your house smell like cinnamon apples.
Unlike the other recipes, you do not have to cook the apples for this pie, you simply make the syrup, add optional spices, mix it into the apples, pour, and bake! This recipe is so easy, and I am so relieved it turned out great!
Even though this year is different, we can’t see family to celebrate, I hope you still have an amazing holiday!
- One pie crust (I used homemade but to make this easier, use a store bought one. I personally do not taste a difference.)
- 7 green apples, peeled and sliced into desired sized pieces
- 8 tablespoons of unsalted butter
- 3 tablespoons of flour
- 4 tablespoons of water
- 1/2 cup of sugar
- 1/2 cup of brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon
- Pinch (1/8 teaspoon) of nutmeg
- Preheat oven to 425 F
- Stir together the butter, and flour until the butter is melted and it forms a paste. Then add the water, and sugars and stir until combined, and bring to a light simmer, about 3-4-5 minutes on medium heat.
- Pour into the chopped apples, in a large mixing bowl. Add the cinnamon and nutmeg and stir.
- Add the apples to your prepared pie crust in a pan, and place the other layer on top. Pinch the edges, and poke holes at the top with a fork to allow air to come through.
- Place on a baking tray, then bake for 15 minutes. Then, reduce the temperature to 350 F and continue to bake for 35-40 minutes, or until you see nice brown edges.
- Cut, cool, serve, and enjoy!
