List of Ingredients

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

Ingredients

– 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.

It’s Time to Wash and Peel Our Apples

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 teaspoon 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.

    This sounds like an amazing Apple pie and would love to make it. I am a bit confused, in that the Ingredients says to use 1 teaspoon of Vanilla, but in the Instructions, it’s 1 Tablespoon. I do love Vanilla and add a bit more to my recipes, but with this being a single pie, I’d love to know which to do. I’m so excited about this recipe you’ve shared and thank you both!!

      Hey Karen! I’m sorry it was a typo, it should be 1 teaspoon of vanilla. Of course if you’re a lover of vanilla flavor feel free to add more. Happy Baking and please let us know how your pie turns out!

    Pie was great but there was a LOT of liquid in the pan after baking. I know there is a great deal of water (moisture) in Apple’s, but I’ve never seen this much liquid before. Before serving, I had to tip the pie to drain it. any suggestions?

      Hey Jan! I’m sorry to hear that happened to you, I’m happy to hear your pie turned out great! I’ve never had that happen to me and I’ve made the pie many times. Perhaps you could try less water next time and hopefully that will solve the problem! Have a great day!😊

    I over heard an owner of an Apple Store in apple country who said to use different kids of apples. Some will stay a little firmer than other will cook up. What are your thoughts on this? I have done this for years but never had a recipe for the filling. I’m going to use yours next time.
    Thank you

      Hello Carol! I’ve actually used several different types of apples for my apple pie and it has never turned out well. My pies tended to be mushy and too sweet which is why I’ve decided to use Granny Smith apples. In my opinion they’re crispier, firmer, and heartier then other apples. They’re also a bit tart, and I like the tartness of the Granny Smith apple. Since apples are a sweeter fruit if you use a red apple for instance once you add the sugar and cinnamon the pie is too sweet for me and I can’t even really enjoy it. Thank you for taking the time to reach out and I ask my opinion. Please let us know how this recipe works for you! Happy Baking!
