As American as Apple Pie

24 Nov

mmmmmmmmmmmm apple pie, basically the only thing Americans can claim as ours, right? Of course, other countries such as England, France, the Netherlands, and Sweden had their own variations of a pie with the main ingredient being apple far before us, but being American, we like to claim stuff as our own.  So apple pie is ours!

And even though apple pies are common on our Thanksgiving tables, it’s very unlikely that in the time of the pilgrims, there were ever pies with anything but meat in them.  But now apple pies are traditionally eaten around this time of year, when the apples are delicious!

Delicious Apple Pie:


around 7 cups of sliced apples (or around 6 large apples I think)

pie crust (store bought or make your own)

3/4 cup of granulated sugar

1/2 cup of all purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


1 cup of all purpose flour

1/2 cup of butter (=one stick)

1/2 cup brown sugar


Preheat oven to 425

lay out the crust on a 9″ diameter pie dish

Slice your apples up very thin, and use a mixture of apples for perfection.

Add flour, sugar, and cinnamon into the apples, and mix well

At this point, you may want to mooch a piece or two, because it’s totally delicious!

Pour the apple sugar mixture into the crust and spread evenly throughout.


In a seperate bowl, melt butter.  Then add flour and brown sugar and mix thoroughly.  Spread mixture over the pie as evenly as possible.


Cook for 50 minutes (cover for the last 10 minutes if it seems to be getting too dark), and ENJOY
