Description

Great American Apple Pie—there’s nothing better. This is my son’s all-time favorite apple pie. I love the addition of apple juice in this recipe. It’s something you just wouldn’t expect. Make sure to chip the apples so they stack nicely. If you want a little south in your mouth, this is the perfect recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1 package Pillsbury Pie Crusts (double Crust)
  • 9 whole Apples Of Your Choice, At Least Two Being Granny Smith Apples, sliced or chipped
  • ¾ cups Sugar
  • ¼ cups Cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoons Allspice
  • Dash Of Salt
  • ¼ cups Apple Juice
  • 2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla

Preparation

Preheat oven to 425F. Roll one pie crust out into a pie plate. Peel and chip apples (cutting like potato chip slices) into a large mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, combine all dry ingredients and stir to blend.

Combine all wet ingredients in another bowl and stir to blend. Pour dry and wet ingredients over apples and stir well. Spoon apples into prepared crust. Wet your fingers and wipe around the edge of the crust before unrolling your other crust on top. Press to seal around the edges. After you have sealed them together, fold the edges over and crimp them with your fingers. Cut a few slits on the top with a knife. Melt some butter and brush it over the crust, then sprinkle a bit of sugar on top.

Place in the oven and bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and cover entire pie with foil, leaving the center open. You just want the outer edge covered, to prevent it from burning. Reduce heat to 375F and continue baking for 45-55 minutes or until golden brown.

The recipe is missing the amount of apples needed for this pie…also, I’m not certain what the term “chipping” means.
If the recipe could be edited accordingly, I will want to try making this pie. It looks fabulous!!

Delicious! I’m not a huge apple pie-lover, but this was excellent. I chose the chipped apples, which made a huge difference (I just don’t love biting into big slices of apple, personally). I found that 9 apples was a bit too much, but I just left a bit out.
