Confession: I say A LOT of bad things about pies in my cookbook Cookie Remix (which you absolutely need to pre-order pronto!). Please accept my apology, dear Easy Apple Pie, because I almost-kind-of-maybe want to retract my negative statements regarding your "kind" after experiencing you. There has never been an easier Apple Pie to make and I promise that 98.8% of the population will never know that you cheated if you make this delicious recipe.

I really wish I'd taken a photo of the scene that took place at my counter after this baby came out of the oven. It was a total cows-at-the-trough scene.

So here's the deal. When you make your own pie crust, pies are not super easy to make. When you purchase a pre-made pie crust, pies are super easy to make. Some argue that you will miss out on some flakiness and flavor, but I will argue back that convenience wins over effort and often tastes just as good. Remember that time I attempted a homemade pie crust and was not able to enjoy the fruits of my labor? Read about my Double Chocolate Pecan Pie fiasco here. It's a sad story and I'm not sure that I'll ever make a homemade crust again after that tragedy.

Can I use Homemade Whipped Cream for this recipe?

Absolutely yes! If desired, spoon a dollop or two of Homemade Whipped Cream on top!

EASY APPLE PIE RECIPE

prep time: 30 minscook time: 1 hourtotal time: 1 hours and 30 mins

The EASY version of apple pie and totally delicious!

ingredients:

  • Juice from half of a lemon
  • 10 apples, peeled, cored and sliced into 1/4-inch pieces (use a variety of sweet and tart apples for a more complex flavor)
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Two 9-inch refrigerated pie crusts
  • 1 egg yolk, beaten

instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Coat a 9-inch pie plate with cooking spray and set aside. Fill a large bowl halfway with water. Add the lemon juice. Add the apples to the lemon water as they are being cut to avoid browning. Drain completely.
  2. In a medium bowl, combing the sugar, flour, butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and salt. Mix well and add to the apples. Stir until apples are coated completely.
  3. Unroll the pie crusts. Place one into the prepared pie plate and press into the seams. Let excess dough hang over the edges. Layer the apples in the crust, packing them in tight with as few gaps as possible. Top with the remaining crust and seal both crusts by tucking them under around the edge and creating a ripple at the seams using your fingers.
  4. Brush the egg yolk over the surface of the top crust and cut slits. Place the pan on a rimmed baking sheet to avoid dripping and bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Decrease temp to 375 degrees and bake for an additional 50 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool for 15 minutes before cutting. Enjoy warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
