Apple Pie made with fresh Granny Smith green apples with cinnamon and caramel filling in a flaky pie crust.
There is no fall time dessert that matches up to a classic, homemade, fresh Apple Pie. The cinnamon apple aroma that fills the entire house and sitting down with family to cut into a warm pie with some vanilla ice cream is just about perfection.
This particular Apple Pie is very simple and the most difficult part is taking the time to peel and slice the apples. For the top crust, you are open to do whatever you would like. I see so many fancy lattice patterns and braids and all type of fun ways to decorate pies. Be creative and see what you can come up with or keep it simple and classic, just like Apple Pie.
Let’s get baking!
Peel and slice your apples placing them into a mixing bowl. Preheat the oven and begin the filling. The filling is really simple to make, start with melting your butter on the stovetop, add flour and whisk well until thickened. Add water, whisk again and then add in remaining ingredients. Simmer and whisk vigorously for one minute. Mix most the filling with the apple slices and leave some for a drizzle on top of the pie.
Mix the pie filling and apple slices and add to a pie crust.
For the top of your pie, you can do any design you would like on the crust. Below are photos of a basic lattice design. Once your lattice is complete, add the remaining sauce to drizzle over top and place in oven to bake.
