Easy Apple Pie
I’m seriously excited with how easy this pie was to make. In the past, we have boiled down sliced apples and combined spices and then added that mixture into a pie dough and baked it up. But who has time for all those steps anymore 😉 Plus, if you get a hankering for pie, you just want to make it and eat it! And as you can see, this pie is layered with yummy goodness. The spiced apples are surrounded by layers of warm, flaky pie crust that breaks apart as you serve it (they say that the sign of an amazing pie crust is if it breaks as you dish it up). We enjoyed this pie for days on end, simply warming up slices in the toaster oven, drizzling some homemade caramel sauce over the top, and then enjoying in front of the TV.
This time of year I get giddy because the stores start to stock Honeycrisp apples. If you have never had a Honeycrisp apple, you must put down your phone or computer and go now to the store and buy one just to try it. They are absolutely the best apple ever created. Our Trader Joe’s carries huge Honeycrisps that are so tasty and sweet. I usually buy tons of them and I always feel like I’m hoarding them (so picture me snagging apples and looking around with a guilty look on my face 😉 I do add one or two granny smith apples to my easy apple pie as well. Granny Smiths are my all-around favorite apple to snack on or bake with. They are tangy, tart and sweet. Plus they are super healthy for you! Did you know that apples act as a broom for your stomach! An apple a day really does keep the doctor away!
If you’ve never created a lattice top on a pie before, never fear! This super simple step-by-step guide will help you create a beautiful lattice top every time. And the recipe for the pie dough is even more simple because it comes together in a food processor. If you don’t have a food processor, don’t worry. The dough can be made by hand. You can also use a store bought dough if you like! Once this pie starts baking in the oven, you will be delighted by the sweet smells of the apple, cinnamon and clove. And the finished product is a beautiful golden crisp pie 🙂 This Fall pie is perfect for holiday dessert or just yummy family treat! We’ll sometimes even eat a piece of apple pie for breakfast with some eggs!
