Works for Me Wednesday - Homemade Apple Pie

Whenever I find cheap apples (or better yet, get some free), I like to make EASY APPLE PIE. As you guessed, it's easy and it's delicious!

Fit 1 refrigerated pie crust into a 9-inch pie plate. Mix together 6 cups of peeled, cored and sliced apples, 3/4 cup sugar, 2 T flour, a dash of salt and 1 and 1/2 t apple pie spice (I make my own using 1/4 cup cinnamon, 2 T all-spice, dash of ginger and dash of nutmeg - store in ziplock bag and just measure out how much you need). Mix until apples are coated and then put into pie crust. Spread evenly. Scatter 2 T chilled butter (cut into small pieces) over top of mixture. Fit top crust over apple mixture. Press edges together. Brush top crust with 1 T of milk or cream. Make slits in top crust for venting. Sprinkle with 1 T sugar. Bake at 425 for 40-45 minutes. Option: drizzle with caramel or butterscotch topping when serving.


Easy, even for someone who doesn't do a lot of baking.

A homemade pie! Works for me!
