Fresh Apple Pie

aaaAutumn Apple Picking and Apple Pie

It’s apple season. Apple picking is fun, easy, and inexpensive. After apple picking it’s fun to make a fresh apple pie. I have a little trouble making crust so I simply bought premade crust at the grocery store. Here’s how we made an easy apple pie with our fresh apples picked at a local orchard.

You Will Need:

6 cups thinly sliced, peeled apples
3⁄4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon
1⁄4 teaspoon salt
1⁄8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 pie crustsabc

What to Do:

1. Place one pie crust in a 9″ pie place. Press firmly against the side and bottom.

2. In a large bowl, gently mix filling ingredients; spoon into crust-line pie plates. Top with second pie crust. Wrap excess top pie crust under the bottom crust edge, pressing edges together to seal; flute. Cut slits of shapes in several places of top crust.

3. Bake 40 – 45 minutes, or until apples are tender and crust is golden brown. Cover crust with 2-3 inch wide strips of foil 15 – 20 minutes of baking to prevent excessive browning. I bought one of those round crust shields that really works here. Cool on cooling rack at least 2 hours before serving.
