My grandma makes the best Apple Pie I have ever had. The crust is buttery and flakey and the inside is stuffed with apples, sugar and spices. Although I will never give away her secret recipe, this one, is very similar.
You can cheat and use pre-made pie crusts, but I think taking the time to make homemade crust makes a huge difference. I know… making pie crust is a pain and buying it is way easier… but you’ll thank me later once you try this recipe. To make the crust even more exciting, take a small cookie cutter, in whichever shape you choose and cut enough shapes to go around the edge of the pie. Another trick is to make a braided crust. It looks difficult, but it’s really simple and makes a traditional crust more exciting. This is as close to Grandma’s pie as you’ll get… without making the trip, over the river and through the woods.
