Recipe: Grandma's Apple Pie

Apple Pie!!!! Okay this one I am excited about, apple pie was always my favourite pie that Grandma would make and even as a finicky little kid who wouldn't eat desserts with fruit or nuts Grandma's apple pie always made the cut. To this day Grandma will always make an apple pie for every family event because she knows it is my favourite (she probably tells all the Grandchildren that though :)). Get the crust recipe

Fresh Baked Apple Pie
The Recipe: Apple Pie

1 standard pie
4-5 medium sized apples in wedges, about 12 per apple (use a baking apple like Cortland that holds it shape but cooks soft)
1/2 cup of sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup of melted butter plus 1 tbsp at room temperature (Grandma uses margarine, but my preference is butter)

Apple Pie ready for the ovenHeat the oven to 400 degrees. Place the apples in the pie crust in sequential circles starting for the outside and working your way in. Add the remaining apples to any holes in the pie. Sprinkle the sugar and cinnamon over the apples. In a bowl combine the flour, sugar and melted butter until completely combined. With your hands place dabs of topping around the pie until the topping is complete. Place in a 400 degree oven for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and continue cooking for about 30 minutes. Add your favorite vanilla ice cream and enjoy!
