Good Old Apple Pie

Slice of Apple PieGood Old Apple Pie

I love all kinds of apple recipes. God saw fit to bless us with a bountiful apple tree so we preserve a lot of apple butter and apple sauce and apple jelly. What a blessing.

I love apple pie. I’m a big believer that simpler is better with apple pie. I’ve tried all kinds of complicated apple pie recipes, and just keep coming back to this good old reliable apple pie recipe.  With a little extra effort, you can make the recipe entirely by hand for an artisan style pie that is sure to be a crowd pleaser.  Either way, you’ll be amazed and how many compliments you’ll receive with such a simple recipe.


Pie crust (for a 2-crust pie)

6-8 apples (I do 3 Granny Smith and 3 Gala)
½ cup sugar
¼ cup flour (all purpose or whole wheat)
½ tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp ground nutmeg
⅛ teaspoon salt
2 TBS butter


sharp paring knife
large bowl
pie plate
measuring cups and spoons


Prepare pie crust according to the recipe.

Peel and core apples. Thinly slice.

Heat oven to 425° degrees F


Place apples in large bowl. In a smaller bowl, mix the sugar, flour, and spices. Toss with the apples. Place pastry lined pie plate.

Dot with butter.

Cover with top crust and crimp edges. Cover the edge with foil to prevent burning.

Bake for 30 minutes then remove the foil. Continue baking 10-15 minutes or until the crust is lightly browned and the delicious juices are bubbling up through the slits in the top crust.


1 9-inch pie.
