Delicious Apple Pie Recipe

Apple pie is a part of almost all American Traditions. It has, in a way, become a tradition itself. It is what brings families around the table for dessert after a good, Thanksgiving meal. It is the fragrant aroma that fills Grandma’s kitchen the night of Christmas Eve.


  • 6 cups thinly sliced apples
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch single crust pie


  • Prepare your pastry for a two crust pie. Wipe, quarter, core, peel, and slice apples; measure to 6 cups.
  • Combine sugar and cinnamon. The amount of sugar used depends on how tart your apples are.

  1. Nothing can beat a good old classic apple pie. I remember devouring a whole pie to myself when I was a kid. Grandma loves making pies! I practically grew up with her so guess what, I’m a pie expert myself, lol! Well, actually I only perfected those pie recipes Granny hand to me. Now, I do enjoy experimenting on different pie recipes, there’s a lot actually. So many that Granny’s having a hard time remembering all their names, lol! Oh how I love her!
