Apple pie

Mummy makes more apple pies than any other pie. It might be Dad’s favorite. I made this pie at the begging of my boyfriend who wanted to learn to make pie crust (those are his hands on this page). He loves fruit pies. I think this is a fantastic pie for any season. Traditionally, Mummy uses mackintosh apples, but you could use a sweeter or tarter apple to your taste.

Filling: Now, I should say these are all rough estimates. You can play around with the amounts all you want for a big pie, small pie, sweet pie, tart pie, and whatever you can imagine for spices. I’ve listed what I used this weekend, which my boyfriend found to be a little sweet. My sweettooth thought it was perfect.

8-10 apples, peeled and chopped. You really can use a lot of apples. It’s great if this pie is piled high.

1/3 c brown sugar

1/3 c white sugar

1/2 T butter

2 T flour

1 t cinnamon

1/4 t nutmeg

1/4 t allspice


1) Make the crust.

2) Mix all the fillings and pile them in the pie crust. Seriously, I could have added a bunch more to this pie:

3) Cover with the other half of the pie crust, flute the edges to seal together (see the pictures above). Poke a few holes in the top to let the steam out during baking

4) Bake at 350 for 45-60 min, until crust is golden. This pie has a tendency to leak and spill over, making a big mess on the bottom of the oven. Check it at 45 minutes (or when you smell burning), and slide a cookie sheet underneath it to catch any drips.

5) Serve with some vanilla ice cream and enjoy!
