Here's a little secret...this is the cheater version of Apple Pie! But no one will ever know. The crust is buttery-crispy and the insides are weak-in-the-knees delicious.
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. I do have a great gluten-free pie crust recipe to share with you though from Mama Gourmand because she’s knows it’s not always easy to find a gluten-free version at the store. Try hers!
You will love this pie, though, I promise! It is especially great during the fall when apples are in season.
