|Apple Pie before going into the oven|
• 3-4 lbs Braeburn or MacIntosh apples, peeled and cut into small pieces
• Betty Crocker Pie Crust Mix or Jiffy Pie Crust Mix
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 of remaining pie crust mix
Dash of nutmeg
Peeled and cut apples
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 of the remaining pie crust mix
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
Dash of cinnamon
Pre-heat your oven to 425F. The Betty Crocker or the Jiffy mix work well with this recipe.Follow the directions to make the crust for a single pie crust and reserve the remaining crust mix. The remaining pie crust mix is an important part of the filling and the topping, so split in half the remaining pie crust mix for the topping and the filling.
In a large bowl, mix well the filling ingredients. Pour the filling into the waiting pie crust. Mix the topping ingredients into the same bowl and sprinkle the topping over the pie filling and place into the pre-heated oven, and bake the pie on the lower rack of your oven. Check the pie at approximately 35 minutes (normal cooking time is 40-45 minutes). Cook the pie until you see the apples bubbling.
I prefer to use Braeburn or MacIntosh apples as they bake well. Avoid using Red Delicious or Granny Smith apples as they tend to be too bitter for a good pie. I used MacIntosh apples for today's pie.
This is an "after" image of the pie. I baked it it at 425F for 35 minutes. Now I just have to let to cool for a while.
