It’s delicious, homemade and might be the star of your holiday feast! Here is the simple and fast recipe. Enjoy and Happy Holidays everyone!
Meg’s Homemade & Fresh Apple Pie
1 package of Betty Crocker pie crust mix or pre-made refrigerated pie pastry dough
1/3 cup of very cold water – if using pie crust mix box
½ cup of sugar
½ cup of flour
1/3 cup of very cold water
1 tsp of cinnamon
½ tsp of ground nutmeg
3-4 large tart apples – peeled and thinly sliced
1 ½ tablespoon of butter
1 pie tin to bake it in
Heat oven to 425 °F. Make the pie crust mix or take out the refrigerated pie pastry and bring to room temperature. Place the pastry crust onto the pie tin/plate with an overhang of about ½ inch from the rim.
Mix together sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg & apples. Pour mixture into the pastry lined pie tin/plate. Cut 1 tbsp of butter into small chunks and sprinkle evenly all around the pie mixture.
Roll the left over pie crust mix or pick up the pre-made pastry. Cut into 10 stripes, place 5 strips across and begin weaving a criss-cross pattern by first folding back every other strip of the first 5 strips. Repeating in the opposite direction until there is a lattice pattern. You can braid or twist the crust. Get creative with the topping. Fold up and over the edges to build the crusts edge. Brush lightly with ½ tbsp of remaining butter, sprinkle with any additional sugar like pixie dust if you so desire.
Bake for 30 minutes until the crust is golden brown and bubbly. Let it cool and enjoy!
Happy Holidays Everyone
Wow, this apple pie not only looks delicious, it’s also so beautiful! Like a work of art. 🙂 Great job, Meg! I am saving it under my ‘food’ tabs to make later.
