Apple Pie

I LOVE this apple pie recipe!!!!!!

It’s everything an apple pie should be: soft and flaky, sweet and cinnamon-y, rich but not too rich…. plus it looks beautiful AND it’s fool-proof! I found the recipe in one of my all time favourite cookbooks: LionHouse Classics, and tweaked it slightly.

Here’s what you will need: 
Pastry for a 2 crust pie. Home made/brought (I like Betty Crocker Brand for this)
1 c. Sugar, plus more for on top
2 Tbsp. flour 1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp salt
4 PINK LADIES or other tart apples (the sweeter the better!)
2-3 Tbsp butter

Easy Directions: 
1. Make pastry and divide in half. Roll out the first half and line the bottom and sides of your pie dish. Bake in oven at 350degF for 5 mins, or according to the box instructions.
2. In another bowl, combine all the dry ingredients and stir.
3. Peel and slice your apples and put them in the bowl of dry ingredients. Mix so the apples are coated, then place in your baked pie crust.

4. Dot with small pieces of butter.
5. Moisten the edge of your pie crust with water. Roll out the second half of your pastry and put it over the apples, sealing the sides together.
6. Slit the middle of the pie with a knife, and cut out shapes with left-over pie pastry to make it pretty (or don’t)…
7.  Brush the pie with milk, stick on your ‘decorations’ if you have any, and top with a LOT of sugar… the more the better….

8. Bake at 375degF for 45 mins. Serve with vanilla ice cream!
