Recipe by Megan V

This is the most amazing apple pie I have ever made and it is super easy! The filling comes out moist and gooey and has the perfect blend of spices. Perfect for a cool Fall evening! (This is a Southern Living recipe)

My eleven year old son followed the recipe exactly and it was amazing: very subtle interplay between the brown sugar, nutmeg, and cinnamon with the tart Granny Smith apples. As good or maybe better than my German grandmother's pie!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Unroll and stack 2 pie crusts; gently roll or press together.
  2. Fit pastry into a 9 inch deep-dish pie plate.
  3. Toss together apples and lemon juice in a large bowl.
  4. Combine brown sugar, granulated sugar, and next 3 ingredients; sprinkle over apple mixture and toss to coat.
  5. Spoon into prepared pie crust.
  6. Unroll and place remaining pie crust over filling.
  7. Fold edges under, and crimp; cut slits in top for steam to escape. (I also cover the crimped edges of my crust with foil to prevent burning).
  8. Bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes. Reduce temperature to 350 degrees, and bake for 30-35 minutes.
