Fresh Apple Pie

Two weeks ago, I posted the Thanksgiving Menu I serve each year to my family. My fresh apple pie recipe was included in the long list of items I posted. But, it’s so tasty, I felt like it deserved its own post. The pie is a very simple recipe and doesn’t take a lot of time. I will admit, if I’m making it for Thanksgiving, I cheat a little and use a store bought pie crust. I have people ask me for the recipe all the time and I’m always willing to share! I also sometimes make it for Christmas Eve with my mother’s side of the family, when we have Mexican food.

Fresh Apple Pie

½ cup sugar

½ cup packed brown sugar

3 tbsp. all-purpose flour

1 tbsp. ground cinnamon

¼ tsp. ground ginger

¼ tsp. ground nutmeg

7 cups thinly sliced mix of granny smith and gala apples (6-8) apples

1 double pie crust (Pillsbury)

1 tbsp. butter

1 egg white

Additional sugar

In a small bowl, combine sugar, flour and spices; set aside. In a large bowl, toss apple slices with sugar mixture; toss well to coat. Line a 9-inch pie plate with half the pastry. Prick the bottom with a fork. Place apple filling into crust; dot with butter. Roll out remaining pastry to fit top of pie. Cut a few slits in the top or add fun leaf shapes for Fall. Beat egg white until foamy; brush over pastry. Sprinkle sugar and cinnamon on top. Bake at 375 degrees for 35 minutes, increase temperature to 400 degrees and bake an additional 10-15 minutes more until golden brown. Be sure to watch the edges for browning, and cover with foil if needed.
