A good friend went apple picking and decided to give us a huge sack of red apples in all different sizes. And what does one do with so many apples? Well, make apple pies, of course!!! 😉
This was my first attempt at making them. I am not a baker so I was very nervous. I found Pillsbury’s recipe online and the hardest part was cutting up the apples into thin slices. The rest was a piece of pie (pun intended 😂).
- 1 box of Pillsbury refrigerated pie crusts (top and bottom layers)
- 6 cups of medium apples thinly sliced
- 3/4 cups of sugar
- 2 tablespoons of all purpose flour
- 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
Preheat oven at 425 degrees. Let the pie crusts soften at room temperature and place them in a 9 in. round baking pan (or a disposable foil pan which I used for easy cleanup). Mix the ingredients together evenly and carefully add spoonfuls to the bottom pie crust already in the pan. Fill it to the top and place the other pie crust over. Pinch edges together with your fingers and cut a few slits around the pie. Bake for about 50 min. At the half way point, cover the edges with foil to prevent over-browning. Use your judgement and take the pie out when it’s fully cooked. Let it cool for about 2 hours. Enjoy!
I made two pies and we are patiently waiting for them to cool. The house smells wonderful!
