Last weekend I made the best apple pie I’ve ever had. It was so quick and easy, and I am so excited to share the recipe! I am definitely a pie person, and I made it so I might be a little biased, but it was so delicious. My husband couldn’t stop nibbling at it all night, and normally if it isn’t Oreos he doesn’t go back for seconds with dessert so I felt pretty good about it!
To make the pie:
Preheat oven to 425.
Peel, slice, core, and quarter 6-7 applies, depending on the size of the apples. You want the slices to make a mound that rises a few inches above the edge of the pie plate. I used this slicer/peeler and it speeds up the process considerably!
Then, in a sauce pan on the stove melt one stick of butter and mix with 3 tablespoons butter until combined. Next, add in 1/4 cup water, 1/2 cup white sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar, a dash of cinnamon, a dash of nutmeg, and a couple shakes of salt. Simmer on the stove until everything is melted, and constantly stir so that everything is evenly combined.
Line a pie plate with one crust. I’ll admit, I use store bought ones. I prefer the Pilsbury, but the Trader Joe’s ones are good too (just make sure you defrost them for 45 minutes at least). Fill the pie crust with the apples, and then pour the sauce on top. Place the other pie crust over the filling and seal the edges together. Finally, cut a few slits on the top.
Bake at 425 for 15 minutes, and then reduce oven to 350 and bake 35-45 minutes until pie crust is golden brown.
