Southern Apple Pie Recipe

I remember my grandma making pies all the time when I was little. She would make the dough and go to work on cutting up different fruits to fill it with. While browsing through my Southern Plate cookbook(I'll post about it soon-love it), I saw this Apple Pie recipe and had to try it. Like most Southern recipes, it is simple and doesn't use fancy ingredients. I had everything I needed in my house already. This time I used store bought pie crust, but next time I want to try and make my own!

It cooled down for a few days and I baked like crazy(its back in the mid 80s today).  I used my Wilton Pumpkin Pie pan so I used 4 apples instead of 9-10 like the recipe calls for. I used 2 very large Granny Smith apples and then 2 medium red apples.  Here they are with all of the ingredients on top of them.

I mixed it all together and poured it into my pumpkin plate.

After 15 minutes, I took it out and covered the edges with foil.

Here it is completely done and out of the oven.

Wishing this was scratch and sniff?  Me too!

1 Package refrigerated pie Crusts
9-10 apples, two different kinds, one Granny Smith
1/4 Cup Apple Juice
2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
3/4 Cup Sugar
1/4 Cup Corn Starch
dash of salt
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon allspice

Preheat oven to 425. Roll one pie crust out into pie plate. Peel and chip apples into large mixing bowl. In separate bowl, combine all dry ingredients and stir to blend. Combine all liquid ingredients in another bowl and stir to blend. Pour dry and liquid over apples and stir well.

Pour over pie crust in pie plate and spread evenly. Use your finger and dip it in water to dampen the ouer edges of the crust before topping with remaining crust. Fold and crmp the edges together. Cut four 1-inch slits in the top of the pie. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with sugar, if desired(I brushed with butter-but didn't use sugar).

Place in oven and bake 15 minutes. Remove from oven and cover entire pie with foil. Cut slits in center of foil and peel back so mainly the outer edge is covered (to prevent it from burning). Reduce heat to 375 and continue baking for 45-55 minutes or until golden.

Pin It!

I want that right this minute! I make a crumb topping apple pie, but I've never tried one with a top crust.

I always use the same apple pie recipe, but I might have to try this one. It is interesting to me that it has apple juice.

I also want to try making my own crust one of these times!

I love apple pie warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. I am def. going to try this recipe. I use the store bought crusts too but have always wanted to try making my own from scratch. I think it's one of those things that take practice.

Oh my goodness. I'm starving and looking through these recipes like a dimwit. Lol. That looks yummy! I'm from the south, Louisiana, and love things made southern style. I will definitely be trying this to take to Christmas dinner at mom's and the in law's house this year. I just know they'll all love it. Maybe Santa will be extra nice to me if I leave him a piece too. Hehe!
