I am a big apple pie fan. Especially if it is done right.
And this ladies and gentlemen is one awesome apple pie!
I started with homemade crust, this is the same crust I used for the Orange Meringue pie.
I really like how easy and yummy it is. 4 ingredients, very little work.
We peeled, cored, and sliced our apples. We used Gala. I have used this same recipe with Honey Crisp and it was divine, but they are expensive and intermittent in our store.
The filling is cooked and pour over the top of the apples, already resting on their crust.
I used this recipe, and it is wonderful!
After pouring the filling over the apples add your upper crust and seal the edges. Don't worry if your filling looks thick and caramel-y.
It will melt and ooze down through your apples in the baking process.
You then bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes, then reduce to 350 and bake for another 40 minutes give or take. Keep an eye on it, you don't want to burn your crust.
The finished product is best when served warm, but delicious no matter what.
Serving warm a la mode... pure heaven.
This will make my thanksgiving table. First time an apple pie has earned this fine distinction in my home.
