Grandma's Apple Pie
This is a very easy homemade apple pie recipe and we’ve been making it in my family for YEARS! As with all apple pies…it’s all about the pie crust-apple ratio. If you have an amazing buttery, flaky crust and slightly gooey, sweet-tart apples, you’re winning honey!
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 45 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 15 minutes
Servings 8 servings
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 5 Granny Smith apples peeled,cored, quartered, and thinly sliced
- 3 9 inch refrigerated prerolled pie crusts
- 1 cup white sugar divided
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon divided
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 1 tablespoon butter cut into small chunks
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Place 1/2 cup butter into a heavy cast iron skillet, and melt butter in the oven. Remove skillet and sprinkle with brown sugar; return to oven to heat while you prepare the apples.
- Remove skillet, and place 1 refrigerated pie crust on top of the brown sugar. Top the pie crust with half the sliced apples. Sprinkle apples with 1/2 cup of sugar and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon; place a second pie crust over the apples; top the second crust with the remaining apples, and sprinkle with 1/2 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Top with the third crust; sprinkle the top crust with 1/4 cup sugar, and dot with 1 tablespoon of butter. Cut 4 slits into the top crust for steam.
- Bake in the preheated oven until the apples are tender and the crust is golden brown, about 45 minutes. Serve warm.
