Easy Apple Pie

Here is a traditional and easy apple pie recipe. You can make your own pie crust but I swear by the store bought ones. If you would like to make the store bought crust homemade, remove it from the tin while it is frozen and place in your own 9 inch pie dish. Let it thaw there and then mold it to your dish.

Size: Serves 8-10

1 store bought deep dish pie crust
1/4 cup of all purpose flour
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons butter
1 large egg white
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons corn starch
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3 pound(s) Granny Smith, Golden Delicious, and/or Gala apples, each cored, peeled, and cut into 8 wedges
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
1/2 cup chopped nuts(pecans, walnuts etc) your choice


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. While crust is thawing at room temperature for 15 minutes, mix pecans, flour, and brown sugar in bowl. Work in butter with fingertips until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Set aside.

2. Prick bottom and sides of crust with fork. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until lightly golden. Immediately brush bottom and sides of hot crust with light coating of egg white. Reset oven to 425 degrees.

3. Meanwhile, in large bowl, combine granulated sugar, cornstarch, and cinnamon. Toss in apples and lemon juice. Cover with waxed paper and microwave on High 12 minutes, stirring halfway through. Spoon filling into crust. Sprinkle pecan topping over filling.

4. Bake pie 10 to 12 minutes or until topping is golden. Cool on wire rack. Serve with vanilla ice cream if desired.
