Easy Homemade Apple Pie Recipe

It’s that time of year again! It’s not officially fall until you’ve (A) Taken a picture at a pumpkin patch, (B) Worn scarves and/or boots pretending it’s cooler than it really is, (C) Stopped on the side of the road for boiled peanuts, (D) Ordered a pumpkin spice latte, and (E) Made a homemade apple pie! Apples are in season and your pies will never taste better than they do right now. Kat, Mom, and I have already made a trip to Ellijay (apple capital of GA!) to purchase our bushel and a peck of north Georgia apples.

My mom got this apple pie recipe from a great family friend. It’s definitely not your traditional lattice crust pie. It’s more like apple pie meets apple cobbler but it’s the only pie recipe I swear by!

Easy Apple Pie

For filling:
:: 6 large apples
:: 1 tsp. cinnamon
:: 1/2 cup white sugar
:: 1 unbaked pie shell (deep dish)

For crumble topping:
:: 1/2 cup white sugar

:: 1/4 cup brown sugar
:: 3/4 cup flour
:: 1/3 cup softened butter

1 | Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray your pie dish with nonstick cooking spray and spread your pie shell out in the dish.

2 | Peel apples and then cut them to desired size. You can just throw them in your pie dish – no need for a bowl!

3 | Evenly sprinkle in your sugar and cinnamon for the filling.

4 | Mix all ingredients for the topping until crumbly and evenly place on top of apples. (Sometimes I make extra crumble topping because I love it so much!)

5 | Bake at 350* for 1 hour. (Tip: Pie will slice better if you let it cool for about half an hour.)

Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and you have the perfect fall treat! What other fall sweets do you look forward to? I’d love to try it out and blog about it!
