Fall is definitely in the air now. The temperatures have dropped and the leaves are starting to change colors. It's apple picking season. It's the time of year that begs for some baking to be done.
I was in the grocery store last week and saw tons and tons of apples to choose from. It put me in the mood to bake a pie. So, as an after-school snack last week I whipped up an apple pie.
It's so easy and takes no time at all.
Recipe for a 9 inch apple pie:
2 Pie Crusts - I like to use the Pillsbury in the refrigerator section
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
6 apples sliced thinly
2 tablespoons butter or margarine (optional)
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Take one pie crust and place in bottom of pie pan.
Stir together sugar, flour, nutmeg, cinnamon and salt; mix with apples.
After it's all mixed spoon it into the pie pan you have your pie crust in. Dot with butter. Cover with the top crust and cut slits into it. Seal and flute. Cover the edge with a 2-3 inch strip of aluminum foil to prevent excessive browning (it's an important step). Bake 40-50 minutes or until curst in brown and the juice begins to bubble through the slits in the crust.
It's that easy.
This pie was eaten and gone by the next morning...yep that's how good it is.
Hope you will try it.
