Oh, Miss American Pie

28 Oct

So I’ve never made an apple pie before. Like, ever. But I really wanted to, because I had a lot of apples left over from apple picking. Didn’t think it would be a easy process but oh it was. Okay, going to stop babbling because I may or may not be a little tipsy.

Don’t judge.

So, yes, the apple pie making process was fairly easy and tons of fun. I must admit, I don’t like fall, the only season I like is summer. Fall is depressing to me because it means that summer is over. But making apple pies, pumpkin treats, and wearing cute fall clothes make me feel a little better. Just a teensy bit.

So, enough of this tipsy talk. Let’s just get right to it, alright?


8 cups apple, peeled and sliced (about 5 medium apples)

lemon juice from half a lemon

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 ts cinnamon

1/4 ts nutmeg

1/4 cup flour

For homemade crust:

2.5 cup flour

2 sticks cold butter, cubed

1/2 ts salt

1/2 cup ice water


1. Make the crust- Use your hands, mix butter, salt, and flour. Once the mixture is coming together, add in ice water 1 tablespoon at a time and keep using your hands to mix it in!

Once the dough is forming together, roll into a ball and wrap in plastic wrap. Let it sit in the refrigerator for at least an hour.

2. Prepare the apple mixture- toss apple in lemon juice. Add in cinnamon, nutmeg, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and flour and mix. (I actually tossed everything in a large freezer bag and just let it mix and mingle in the bag)

3. Once dough is finished chilling, divide the dough in two and roll them out in flour. Have your 9 inch pie pan and grease it so it’s ready to roll!

4. Oh, and don’t forget to preheat your oven to 425 degrees!

5. Roll out first dough onto the pan. I actually couldn’t find a pie pan, so I used a tart pan instead.

6. Pour the apple mixture on.

7. Roll the other half of dough on top of the pie. Make a few slithers on top so the apples inside can breathe.

8. Ready for the oven. Bake for 15 minutes under 425 degrees. Then lower your oven to 350 degrees and let it keep baking for about 45 minutes.

And how wonderful does my Miss American pie look? For next time, I will glaze a thin cinnamon sugar coat on top for a good glisten and sugary crust.
