Pie Plate Apple Pie

I made it back to the east coast 2 weeks ago, including to NH, where my father and I followed the directions in a pie dish to make an apple pie that went most delightfully with some vanilla ice cream!

img_7867Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg (I used more cinnamon, as I hate nutmeg)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 pounds apples, peeled and sliced
  • 1 box prepared pie crusts, or your favorite 2-crust recipe
  • ice cream and/or whipped cream for serving, as desired

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place one of the pie crusts into the pie plate and prick all over with a fork. Set aside.

In a bowl, combine the sugars, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt, stirring together. Cut in the butter, using a pastry blender, forks, or your fingers, until only small pieces remain.

img_7869Pour the sugar mixture over the apples and stir to combine.

img_7870Transfer the apple mixture into the bottom crust.

img_7871Top with the other crust, pinching together the edges all the way around, to seal, and cutting several slits in the top.

img_7872Bake 45-50 minutes, then serve with ice cream!
