Making Tuesday Tasty-Easy Peasy Apple Pie

Apple season is in full swing! I just got a 30lb box of Honey crisp apples and wanted to make some apple pie filling to put up in the freezer. I may end up making some baked apples or apples and cinnamon as well. YUM!

This is from my Grandma's apple pie which is easy in and of itself but, if you're like me and haven't perfected making crust, you can make it this way and it turns out wonderfully.

Peel and slice enough apples to fill a 9 in pie pan. About 4 large apples. Adjust to the size and type of your apple. I measure using the pan itself.

Put apple slices in a large bowl and add

1 Tbsp of flour or cornstarch to thicken the juices while cooking

Depending on how tart your apples are, 1/2 to 1 C of white sugar(honestly, I do this to taste. The honey crisp have a lovely tartness so I put about 3/4 C of sugar)

Cinnamon to taste. I LOVE it to have a lot of cinnamon so I probably put a couple of tsp. of cinnamon in mine. If you like it less, add a little at a time and taste it.

Pillsbury ready made pie crusts(you can find these in the fridge section. comes with two crusts)

Follow the directions for the crust and unroll a bottom layer of crust into the pan.

Put filling into the pie shell.

Place the second crust over the top. Seal the edges with a fork.

If you're able to pinch the edges together, that works well too!

Cut some diagonal openings into the top crust to allow air and bubbles room for cooking.

Bake at 400 degrees for 15 to 20 Min's, then turn the temp down to 350 degrees and bake for the rest of the time to total and hour. 40 to 45 Min's.

Cool and serve.
