From Scratch Apple Pie

Chris has been asking /bugging me for an apple pie since the Peach Pie has been gone.  Since yesterday was our wedding anniversary, I made one for him. Happy Anniversary Chris lol!



Here are the ingredients I used, plus a little white sugar for dusting the top of the pie before baking.


Begin by making your pastry if you haven’t already.  I had some frozen that I made last week, so I just had to thaw it. If you’ve never made your own pastry before,  please see our Making Pastry post!

I washed,  peeled, cored and sliced about 10 apples into a large bowl.


I  added the melted margarine and mixed well.


I added the remaining ingredients except for the egg, and stirred it all up.


I like to soften my apples before I put them in the pie, so I microwaved them on high for 5 minutes, stirring half way through.


Once softened, I rolled out my pastry, poured the apples in the bottom crust and then added a nice lattice top.


Lastly, I beat the egg and brushed the top of the pie with the beaten egg and then sprinkled the top with white sugar.


I baked it at 375 degrees for 45 minutes and it came out of the oven looking like this!

Here is Chris’ Happy Anniversary Apple Pie lol!
