This is easy as pie to make. Literally. If you’re not good at baking or cooking, I promise you can do this.
Easy Apple Pie
8 slices of pie, takes 15 minutes of prep time and an hour to bake
3-4 Granny Smith Apples, sliced thin
3/4 cup of white sugar
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
1 teaspoon of nutmeg
1/2 lemon (for squeezing)
1/2 cup of butter, softened (not melted!)* (or a dairy-free butter substitute)
1/2 cup of flour
1/2 cup of brown sugar
Pre-made pie crusts* (or a vegan pie crust, store bought or home-made)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Dust a 9 inch pie pan with a light layer of flour (to prevent sticking) and line with one of the pie crusts. Fill the pie with all your pre-sliced apples so it is just mountain-ing over the top of the pan. Sprinkle the white sugar and spices on top of the apples. Squeeze your lemon over the apples as well, watching for seeds. In a separate bowl, mix the butter, brown sugar, and flour until it forms a crumb-like mixture. If it seems to runny, add a tablespoon or two each of flour and brown sugar. Cover the pie with this evenly.
Lastly, there are two ways you can top it off. Easy way– just put the other pie crust on top. Fancy way- cut strips from the second crust and criss-cross them on the top of the pie (as seen above). For both, trim all the edges of excess pie crust and press the two crusts together using a fork or your thumb. Put the pie in the oven for 15 minutes, then turn down the heat to 350 degrees and allow to bake for 45 more minutes.
Enjoy with creamy vanilla ice cream while it is fresh out of the oven! :]
Nom, nom, nom.
