List of Ingredients

As always we need a list of ingredients before we start baking our Apple Pie.


– 1/2 Cup of sugar

-1/2 Cup of brown sugar

-3 Tablespoons of all-purpose flour

-1 Teaspoon of vanilla flavoring

-1 Teaspoon of ground cinnamon

-1/2 squeezed lemon

-6-7 Granny Smith apples

-2 Tablespoons of butter

-1/2 cup of water

-1 pie crust (store bought or homemade, whichever you prefer)

What type of Apples do I use?

Granny Smith Apples are the best apples for Apple Pies

Since this is an apple recipe the type of apples that you use is super important. I mean it’s an apple pie for Heaven’s Sakes, so you have to get the right apples. I love to use Granny Smith Apples, I think they’re amazing for baking. Here are a couple reasons, I always use  them; they’re firm which means they will hold their shape and won’t turn mushy when baked. Another reason is that they’re very tart, which means that your pie won’t be  too sweet.

A dessert that’s too sweet, isn’t enjoyable and that’s not something we ever want to happen.

Next, you’re going to squeeze half a lemon into your sliced apples, to keep them from turning brown.  Be sure to  watch out for lemon seeds!

Then, you’re going to add in your 1/2 cup of water, 1/2 cup of granulated sugar, 1/2 cup of brown sugar , cut your 2 tablespoons of butter into little cubes, and add them into the bowl. Add 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1 tablespoon of vanilla flavoring or lemon flavoring  and 3 tablespoons of flour.

Be sure to  fold in your ingredients, and not stir because you don’t want to break your apples.

I cooked my pie crust by itself in the oven for about to 10 minutes on 350 degrees. To ensure that the bottom layer of my pie crust was done.

Now that my piece crust is finished I can begin, to fill it with the apple filling.

Add your top layer of pie crust, score the top, and brush with butter.  I also sprinkled a little brown and white sugar on top.
