This is the Easiest Apple Pie Recipe EVER!
This is the apple pie recipe that anyone can make.
It is not only very simple to make, but so very quick to make too! Truly this is the easiest ever apple pie recipe!
All you need to make this easy pie is two store-purchased, ready-made unbaked pie crusts.
Granted, apple pie with a homemade crust is a hard-to-beat pie. However, for the busy Baker, who really wants to make an apple pie, but does not have the time to make a homemade pastry crust, this recipe is for them!
I just made this apple pie again this past weekend, and my husband said: "Why re-invent the wheel? Just use these store purchased crusts...this apple pie is SCRUMPTIOUS!"
There you have it ... treat your family to this quick and easy apple pie, and if you do not tell them, they will not even know you bought the pie crust. This really is a "no fail" recipe for apple pie!
Note - You can make this apple pie with any type of apple you wish, or make it with an assortment of apple varieties.
8 medium-large apples
2 unbaked, purchased, pastry pie crusts
3/4 cup granulated sugar (can use less if apples are juicy)
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
2 1/2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
1 egg, beaten
In a bowl, using a fork, combine the sugar, cinnamon and the flour until well mixed.
Sprinkle about 1/3 of the dry mixture into the bottom of one pie crust.
Peel, core and slice the apples, adding slices on top of the dry mixture, then sprinkle apples with dry mixture, then add more sliced apples, repeat a few times, ending with a sprinkling of the dry mixture.
The apple filling should rise well above the height of the pie crust (see photo).
Slightly moisten, with water, the edges of BOTH pie crusts.
Gently invert the second pie crust over top of the apple filling, and with edges moistened, crimp the edges of the top crust with the edges of the bottom crust, using a fork.
Using a sharp knife make a few "vents" in the top pie crust. (see photo).
Using a pastry brush (or your fingers), brush the beaten egg over the entire pie crust, including the edges. This will help to seal the pie to help prevent too much juice from escaping, and it adds a nice golden colour to the finished pie!
Place the pie on a foil lined baking tray (or a pizza baking tray), so clean up will be easy just in case there is a little juice bubbling over;)
Bake apple pie at 350° F for about 45 - 55 minutes.
Don't you agree that this is the Easiest Apple Pie Ever?
**If you have a pie crust shield, add it to the pie after the pie has baked for about 30 minutes.
