Everyone loves apple pie, especially warmed up with a scoop of vanilla ice cream ala mode. Baking a pie is as simple as 1, 2, 3 when it comes to Pillsbury! Here's a very easy recipe from Pillsbury with pre made pie crusts!
After you've spent the afternoon at one of the cap region's apple orchards, its time to use some of those apples you've picked & bake a delicious pie!
I have used this simple & easy recipe on occasion & not only can anyone make this apple pie but no one will know how easy it was.
1 box Pillsbury® refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box
- 6 cups thinly sliced, peeled apples
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- Step 1: Heat oven to 425°F. Place 1 pie crust in ungreased 9-inch glass pie plate. Press firmly against side and bottom.
Step2: In large bowl, gently mix filling ingredients; spoon into crust-lined pie plate. Top with second crust. Wrap excess top crust under bottom crust edge, pressing edges together to seal; flute. Cut slits or shapes in several places in top crust.
Step 3: Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until apples are tender and crust is golden brown. Cover edge of crust with 2- to 3-inch wide strips of foil after first 15 to 20 minutes of baking to prevent excessive browning. Cool on cooling rack at least 2 hours before serving.
Wala! Easy, delicious apple pie! Perfect all season long. yummy!
