This is a very simple apple pie recipe, and one that I have always had success with, it is the one I always choose when I want to make a perfect apple pie. Of coarse you can use your favorite pie crust recipe if desired. Remember, use only Granny Smith or Pippin for this pie otherwise you will end up with a mushy filling. This pie can also be made with a crumb topping instead of a top pastry crust see recipe below. Once you try this recipe for apple pie you will always come back to it! The amount of apple filling is enough for one large 10-inch deep-dish pie or divide in half and make two 8-inch pies, also the crumb topping for this recipe is enough for two small pies.
