Who doesn’t like a good apple pie? I think apple pie is my favorite pie! I don’t want to stay in the kitchen all day to make it though. I researched several apple pie and crust recipes and came up with a recipe for very simple apple pie. I find fall to be the perfect time to enjoy a nice slice!
I prepared the pie crust first and put half of it in the bottom of a pie plate. Then I cut and chopped the apples and mixed them with a sugar and cinnamon mixture. Here they are arranged in the pie plate.
Next, I put the top crust on and pinched the two crusts together. I also cut four slits in the top to let the steam escape.
Here is the finished product. I love how the apples bubble and the steam rises after it comes out of the oven. It smells so good!
Below is the recipe for my double pie crust and apple pie filling!
- Double Pie Crust Recipe:
- 3 cups all purpose flour
- 1 t salt
- 2 t sugar
- 1/2 t baking powder
- 2’3 cup vegetable oil
- 6-8 T of water or milk
- Apple Filling:
- 6-7 medium size apples, peeled and cut into slices
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 t ground cinnamon
- 1 T butter
- Preheat oven to 400. Whisk together the flour, salt, sugar and baking powder. whisk together the oil and milk or water, then pour over the dry ingredients. Stir with a fork until the dough is moistened. Take 1 1/4 cups of the mixture for the top crust. Pat the remaining dough in the pie pan. Pat the dough on the bottom and sides of the pie pan.You can sprinkle it with a bit of sugar and cinnamon if you like.
- Mix apples with the cinnamon and the sugar in a bowl. Put the apple filling into the crust lined pan. Put the dab of butter on top. Put the crust top on top of apple filling. Pinch the edges together. Cut a few slits on the top to allow steam to escape. Bake at 400 for 10 minutes then reduce temperature to 350 and bake for an additional 45 minutes or until the crust is golden. Cool on a cooling rack for at least an hour.
