Simple Apple Pie

I had a bunch of bruised apples that weren’t being eaten so with a few simple ingredients I created this apple pie. It’s super easy to make and tastes amazing!

Here’s what I used to make this:

  • 7-8 Apples ( I used McIntosh apples)
  • 1/4 Cup sugar
  • 1/4 Cup water
  • 4-5 Tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 Ready made pie shells
  • 1 Egg

 

Alright to start off I used the ready made pie shells that you can find in the freezer section at your local grocery store. I followed the instructions on the back and thawed them out before baking one of them off. The second pie shell I took out of the aluminium container and flattened out. Leave it sitting like that while the pie shell is baking. When the pie shell is done it should look something like this.

Now while you wait for that to cool down, start coring and peeling your apples. Cut them into long chunky pieces and throw them in deep saucepan or pot. Add in the sugar, cinnamon and water. Let it cook down for about 15 minutes, pull off heat and let it cool a bit.

Once everything is cooled down, add the apple filling to your baked pie crust. Now for the top I simply took the second raw pie crust that I flattened out and cut it into strips. I gently put it across the pie and cut off any excess dough from the ends. Then take an egg and beat it in a small bowl. Take a pastry brush and give the dough a wash. It should look something like this.

Preheat your oven to 350 and bake it for 20 minutes, then switch the heat up to 375 for about 10 minutes. That will give the top a lovely brown colour, check out how mine turned out!
