Apple Pie

Outside the snow is falling, clinging carefully to every surface it can. I enjoy snow the most by staying inside and looking out the window.

I always feel like doing some baking when ever it snows.  I had several apples in the refrigerator for a while already waiting until I feel like making dumplings or pie.

I decided to make a pie this time.

Apple Pie

6 cups sliced apples (5 apples)
2/3 cup sugar
1 Tbsp flour
2 Tbsp granulated tapioca
½ tsp cinnamon

Toss together and let set while you prepare the pie crust. Recipe here.

Don't worry if it looks like you have way to many apples for one pie. Pie pan should be filled nicely rounded.

After placing the top crust on pie. Bake at 350ยบ for 30-45 minutes until your desired golden brown.

Delicious!

I love apple pie. I'd put in only about 1/4 cup of sugar - but I don't like anything that's too sweet.

Apple pie is my favorite - just add vanilla Ice cream or a slice of cheddar cheese = yummy.

YUM! I love your comment "Don't worry if it looks like you have way to many apples for one pie." I always think it looks like too much when I make them! :)

Your pie looks lovely! How did you get the edge to look so perfect?

A warm homemade apple pie tastes good in any season -- eg a hot, 34 C (93.2 F)Summer's day which is what we're having at the moment in South Africa! But, of course the crust is easier to make in colder weather and pies lovely to eat by the fireside in Winter.....will have to wait 6 months, so in the meantime, think I'll go jump in our pool to cool off right now! :)

Looks delicious! Tapioca? Interesting! I add nutmeg to mine and some butter. I think there's an apple pie hiding in my near future ...

This pie looks so good. I'll have to send the recipe to my sister, as apple is her favorite, and she is always looking for a good recipe.

God bless,

Thanks so much for sharing your recipe for Apple Pie, it looks delicious. The last time I tried to bake a "from scratch" apple pie, it looked so nice going in to the oven, and even coming out, but it was as heavy as a ton of cement. Not sure what went wrong that day, but my boyfriend at the time was gracious enough to compliment me and take it home with him as to not hurt my feelings. Gosh wouldn't it be nice to try again and succeed.
