Apple pie is probably my favorite dessert. There is nothing like the flavor of apples and cinnamon mixed together; then baked until the apples are soft. I like to use McIntosh or Cortland apples in my pies as they really give it a nice flavor.Homemade Apple Pie #dessert Click To Tweet
I think I’ve mentioned it before, but I haven’t been able to make a decent pie crust. EVER. I have tried for years, but when Pillsbury came out with their refrigerated pie crusts, I just gave up because they were so good I just didn’t bother anymore. One of these days I’ll try it again. This recipe is so easy to make and is delicious every time. All you need is a giant scoop of vanilla bean ice cream and dessert is served. ~Enjoy!
- 8-10 McIntosh or Cortland Apples cored and peeled and sliced
- 1 tsp . Ground Cinnamon
- 2 tbsp . Brown Sugar
- 1 tbsp . Butter
- 1 tsp . Corn Starch
- 1 Egg whisked
- 2 Pie Crusts I used Pillsbury Refrigerated Pie Crusts
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Line the bottom of a pie plate with one crust.
- In a separate bowl, add the sliced apples, cinnamon, sugar and corn starch; mix well.
- Add the apple mixture to the pie crust; then add the butter pieces throughout the apples.
- Add the remaining pie crust to the top of the apples, seal the edges either by pinching them together or using the back tines of a fork and pushing down to seal the edges.
- Brush the egg on top of the pie crust then place in the oven for 50-60 minutes or until the apples have softened and the crust is lightly browned.
