What You'll Need

  • 5 to 6 Northern Spy, Cortland, or Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Knead pie crust? That will make the crust tough!!!!

Classic my buttocks. No recipe tells me how to knead the pie crust. Some cooks or housewives you are.

vegtable shortning has been altered till it isn't useable for pie crust. Look up an oil crust, harder to work with but better. If you use premade crust save a lot of hassle and just buy a frozen Marie Callander.

I love the granny smith apples because they "don't" turn to mush. The filling should not be like apple sauce (to each his own). Been this same recipe forever, like my grandmother and my mom, couldn't find one any better. Use butter for the crust and don't over work it.

Jonathan's are my favorite the stay firm and have a better flavor, if you can find them.

OH MY GOD...THIS sounds soooooooooo good. I can't wait to make it!!!

I always pre-cook my apple mixture in frying pan for about 5 to 10 minutes before putting in pie shell. You will never have raw apples again.

And this will also make sure your spices are evenly distributed.

I like to make pies but I have trouble with making the crust.

Just follow the recipe for crust on the Crisco can. Use ice water and sprinkle it over the flour mixture after you have worked in the shortening until it all clings together. Roll it out on a lightly floured clean kitchen towel or dough disc. It's the best recipe i've found.

I have noticed that if I do not cook my apples with the sugar and cinnamon and everything else in it, that the apples do not get done. they remain crunchy, would it be better if I cooked them down before I put them into the pie-crust for baking can anyone help please?

I always pre-cook the apples in a frying pan. You can't go wrong this way. They taste delicious. Just add a pat of butter and pre-fry. and then proceed with the recipe.

I need help.... I am trying to figure out which apple to use when making an apple pie.... I dont like apples when they still have a little bite to them. So I dont like apple pie. If I could figure out what type of apple would come out tender in a pie then I would enjoy it. Any suggestions?

For this pie recipe, we recommend Northern Spy, Cortland or Granny Smith. However, based on your personal taste, you would probably want an apple that gets a little mushy and cooks down, so maybe try a Fuji or Macintosh. Good luck and enjoy!

I always use red and golden delicious apples in my apple pies.

So this pie is one of the ten. Where are the other nine top comfort foods listed. There is no way to get out of here unless you want to read another pie recipe. And I am sure not all of the top ten are pies. If they are the subject of the e-mail should have said so and not this: "Top 10 Classic American Comfort Dishes"
