Hi, I am Eugenie. Also I asked you at Facebook which dessert you prefer: apple pie or pineapple cake. And like 60% people chose apple pie. So I am making an apple pie today. It takes time but it’s very easy to make.
Easy Apple Pie Recipe
for one 8-inch pie
- 25 oz apples, peeled, cored, cut into small wedges (710g)
- 2/3 cup granulated sugar
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1 Pie crust
- 1 egg for eggwash
- Extra sugar for sprinkle
First, in a large mixing bowl, add in sugar, flour, cinnamon, lemon juice and whisk until combined.
Flour acts as thickening agent. And today I added lemon juice because I am using Fuji apples and Fuji is not pungent enough. If you are using Granny Smith, you can skip lemon.
And add in apple wedges and stir until well mixed. Set aside.
Then lightly flour on working surface. And roll out the pie crust dough with a rolling pin. I have two pie recipes in separate videos. I make pie crust at home always. Probably because I went cooking school, so I feel like buying a supermarket pie-crust is cheating. But I saw commercial pie crust haute de gamme, upper-market product.
And cut the pie crust slightly bigger than the pie pan and arrange it in the pan pressing the bottom and side.
Add in apple mixture in the pie crust.
And cut ribbons with dough and make lattice on top of pie. This is meditation to me, so calming. It’s also rewarding, think about the end product.
And make flutes with fingers.
Then brush with egg wash. Today I made just a simple egg wash with an egg and one tablespoon of water. And sprinkle with sugar on top.
Bake in the oven preheated to 425 degrees F (220 C) for 20 minutes and then reduce to 350 degrees F (180 C) for about 20 minutes, or until pie is baked and apples are tender.
Out of oven, cool on a wire rack at least for 2 hours before serving.
It’s so easy. The only hard part is waiting for the pie to cool down for a few hours. That’s hard.
It’s a delicious cinnamon flavored apple pie. The apple filling is egg-free and butter-free.
Today it was apple pie and tomorrow it’s lemon curd. Get my weekly schedule at FB, Instagram, and eugeniekitchen.com. Thank you for watching. Bye for now.
