The summer is filled with excitement and lots of fun! I have lined up several guest posts from some of my best blog friends and some bloggers that I have just met. I have several recipes and craft posts lined up for you during the summer. Are you making an apple pie sometime this summer?
Today’s post is from Yari. She blogs over at Latin Mama in the South about the things that go in her life! Do you find it ironic that I’m sharing an apple pie recipe and pie is the only thing that scares me in baking? Haha! Oh well, I’ll just leave the pies to the bakeries!
My dear friend from Random Crafty Georgia Girl asked me to be a guest blogger and I got so excited. I always want to share things that really make me happy, and cooking is one of those things. I asked my daughter which recipe to share and she immediately mentioned her favorite…APPLE PIE! I started baking a couple of years ago and I was looking for an old apple pie recipe. I drove to the public library and started looking at some old recipe books and I decided to combine two recipes to make my apple pie.
Here is the recipe:
6 Cups of granny smith apples, peeled and cored
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp corn starch
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
1/3 cup sugar
1 tbsp butter, softened
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
1 egg yolk, beaten
Pastry for double crust, Pillsbury
Stir together lemon juice and cornstarch.
Combine brown sugar, sugar, butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
Add both mixtures together (step 1 and 2).
Add the apples, toss and let it rest for 10 minutes.
Brush the pie crust with the egg yolk.
Bake at 350 F, for 40 minutes.
Hint- You can make your own crust or buy the premade one. To save some time I use the already made pie crust and it works perfectly.
We like our apple pie with a dollop of vanilla ice cream. I hope you enjoy!
Thanks so much for sharing your apple pie recipe Yari! I had such a great time getting to know you during the past couple months! Have you made an apple pie before?
