"This is my mother's apple pie. This is the recipe I use all the time and I love it. I also use a dash of nutmeg so if you wish you can put that in too." — Carol

thinly sliced apples
pastry for a 9-inch double-crust pie
This was delicious! I added a few touches to it, also. I mixed the apples with 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, stirred in the sugar and 2 tablespoons of flour to thicken the juices. After adding the top crust, I brushed on an egg wash ( 1 egg beaten with 1 tablespoon milk)and sprinkled 1 tablespoon of sugar. I placed the glass pie dish on a baking sheet to prevent any spill-over from dripping onto the oven's floor.
This was my first apple pie and while it did turn out good it wasn't as gooey as I'd like. I added a couple tablespoons of flour like others suggested, maybe I added too much.
This is a wonderful recipe. I added 1-2 TBLS lemon jiuce, 2 TBLS flour, 1/2 teas vanilla 1/4 teas nutmeg and used brown sugar instead of white. Then mixed the seasonings with the apples before putting it in the crust. I won first prize at a local Farmer's Market apple pie contest so thanks! I cooked it longer- more like 55 minutes so next time will do the 10 minutes at 450, then 40 minutes at 375 I think will work great. It might be my stove so just wait until it is bubbling.
I have made this pie several times to the point of not needing the recipe anymore. Even though it's simple, people rave over it!
I recently began to add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, and it gives a wonderful flavor. Also, I spray my pie pan with Butter flavored nonstick spray, so it's easy to serve (I do cheat and use the refrigerated crusts).
I like to dash the crust with a little butter, sugar, and cinnamon.
I changed some stuff and it came out a lot better the 2nd time. I did 2/4c brown and 1/4 white sugar instead of 3/4c white sugar. I put some nutmeg in it also. On top of the latice i mixed 1 egg and some milk and egg washed the top of the pie and then sprinkled it with white sugar. I had to bake it about 10 minutes longer. Just wanna make sure you wait for the juices in the pie to bubble before removing from the oven.
This turned out wonderfully! Thanks to all the AllRecipes members who suggested adding some flour to the mix! I tossed the apples in the sugar, cinnamon, nutmet and 4tbsp flour together before pouring it into the crust and the filling turned out juicy but not runny. Delicious! My husband wondered how I had gotten his grandmother's recpie!
I used premade crust and added two tsp flour, a little nutmeg, and sprinked the apples with lemon juice. I also used 2 tsp butter and sprinkled the top crust with sugar before baking. My family raved about it. I used granny smith apples, but want to try other kinds.
This pie was very good but we don't understand the layering of the apples and sprinkling process. The second time we tried it we just mixed the apples with the mixture and it tasted much better.
