Apple Pie

Making my first overseas American Christmas dinner would not have been complete without a tasty dessert and that was my first time making Apple Pie from scratch.

Filling Ingredients:

– 6 cups of thinly sliced firm pealed apples
– 2 tbs of flour
– ¼ tsp of Salt
– ¾ cups Sugar
– ¾ tsp of Ground cinnamon
– 1/8 tsp of Nutmeg
– 1 tbs of Lemon juice

How to make the pie:

Take the crust out of the fridge and let it sit for about 15 minutes.

Cut the crust into 2 equal pieces

Sprinkle flour on a clean surface and start rolling the dough (Make sure to turn the dough one side every time you roll)

Keep rolling until it is 1/4 inch thick.

Place the crust into a 8 inch pie dish (Preferable glass)

Mix all the filling ingredients together and add them into the pie dish then place the other crust on top of the filling.

Pinch top and bottom of dough rounds firmly together then fold the edge of the top piece of dough over and under the edge of the bottom piece of dough, pressing together. Flute edges using thumb and forefinger or press with a fork.


Cut 4 slits on top of the crust. Each is about 2 inches in length.


Bake it in the oven at 425f for about 40-45 minuts

Let it sit for about 2 hours before serving.
