Grandma's Apple Pie

Updated: Sep 26, 2020

I have experimented with apple pie recipes for years and this is by far my favorite combination. Every year our family has gone apple picking and my husband and I still do this today. There is nothing like fresh off the tree apples to make a great apple pie. We prefer to use Winesap apples available in our area, but any crisp tart apple will make this great pie.

3/4 cup sugar + Tbsp.

1/4 cup brown sugar

2 Tbs. Flour

1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg

1/8 tsp. salt

2 lbs. tart apples - peeled and cored

1/4 cup light cream

3 Tbs. butter softened

1 Tbs. Milk

1 double pie crust

  1. Layer all ingredients except the cream, butter and milk into a pie shell.

  2. Pour cream into center of apples and dot apples with butter.

  3. Cover with top pie crust and crimp.

  4. Slit top crust and brush with milk - sprinkle a bit of white sugar across the top.

  5. Place pie plate on an aluminium covered cookie sheet (pie may bubble over depending on the moisture in the apples).

  6. Bake @400F for 50 minutes.

  7. Cool for 1 hour before serving warm.
