Perfect Apple Pie (Mom’s Recipe)

My mom baked this apple pie many times using the apples she grew in her backyard.

Maple-Apple Pie

 

Ingredients

6-8 Tart Apples, pared, cored, and thinly sliced (6 cups)

1 Cup Sugar

2 Tbsp Flour

1 tsp Ground Cinnamon

Dash Ground Nutmeg

Pastry for 2 crust 9-inch pie

2 Tbsp Butter

Directions

If apples lack tartness, sprinkle with about 1 tablespoon of lemon juice.  Combine sugar, flour, spices and dash salt; mix with apples.

Line 9-inch pie plate with pastry.  Fill with apple mixture; dot with butter.  Adjust top crust, cutting slits for escape of steam; seal.  Sprinkle with sugar.

Bake at 400 degrees F for 50 minutes or until done.

Get ready for the most wonderful aroma to drift throughout your home.

Serve with Blue Bell Vanilla Ice Cream and Redi Whip.

 

Grandma’s Iron Skillet Apple Pie

 

 Iron Skillet Apple Pie

 

Ingredients

1/2 cup butter

1 cup brown sugar

5 Granny Smith apples — peeled, cored, quartered, and thinly sliced

3 (9 inch) refrigerated pre-rolled pie crusts

1 cup white sugar, divided

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided

1/4 cup white sugar

1 tablespoon butter, cut into small chunks

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Place 1/2 cup butter into a heavy cast iron skillet, and melt butter in the oven. Remove skillet and sprinkle with brown sugar; return to oven to heat while you prepare the apples.

Remove skillet, and place 1 refrigerated pie crust on top of the brown sugar. Top the pie crust with half the sliced apples. Sprinkle apples with 1/2 cup of sugar and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon; place a second pie crust over the apples; top the second crust with the remaining apples, and sprinkle with 1/2 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Top with the third crust; sprinkle the top crust with 1/4 cup sugar and dot with 1 tablespoon of butter. Cut 4 slits into the top crust for steam.

Bake in the preheated oven until the apples are tender and the crust is golden brown, about 45 minutes. Serve warm.
