Old Fashioned Apple Pie

September is the time of year where here in New Jersey, apple picking is abundant!  We headed to our favorite local farm this past weekend to kick off our Fall season!

We picked over 20 lbs of apples of all different varieties. My kids will eat 3, 4, 5 apples a day, so I am positive they will be gone in no time! But, in the meantime, I was ready to bake my favorite apple pie recipe! This is an old stand-by recipe that I have been using for years!  Simple & delicious!

I wish I could say I used handmade crust, but I just cannot get crust to ever come out right, so for now I stick with the expert’s! Make peeling and slicing easy for yourself and use an  Apple Peeler/Corer/Slicer!

While the farm recommended Jonathan apples, I prefer a mixture of different types of apples for a more robust flavor.

How to make the lattice top:

  • To make the lattice top, roll out the second pie crust.
  • With a pizza cutter, cut half inch strips of pie crust, cutting from top to bottom.
  • Weave the crusts alternating horizontally and then vertically.
  • We sprinkle the crust with a mixture of 1 tbsp each sugar and brown sugar with 1 tsp cinnamon and nutmeg.

What’s better than a slice of warm apple pie with vanilla ice cream?
