My Grandma’s Delicious Pie Recipe


We are in full fledged fall; the beautifully colored leaves are falling off the trees and pumpkin spice is taking the world by storm. I love autumn, not just because of the stunning fall foliage and the anticipation of Halloween, but also because I feel a strong inclination to bake with the harvests of the season. To me, nothing screams fall baking more than a homemade apple pie. 

My grandma’s pie recipe is cherished in my family and I feel it would be an injustice to not share it with the rest of the world. If you are in the mood for a decadent, juicy, and pleasantly tart dessert, breakfast, or snack, this is the recipe for you.

Winnie’s Apple Pie


2 pie crusts (homemade or store bought, however the Pillsbury pie crust is my go-to)

5 apples, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced 

2 tablespoons of butter or margarine

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

½ cup of granulated sugar

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

½ teaspoon of nutmeg 


First preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Then, place one pie crust in the bottom of a pie pan and arrange the sliced apples in the pie crust. Next, dab small pieces of butter around the top of the apples and sprinkle the apples with the sugar, lemon juice, and then the cinnamon and nutmeg. Lay the second pie crust over the apples and pinch the edges of the top and bottom pie crust together. Use a knife to poke holes in the shape of an “A” on the top of the pie. Bake for 10 minutes at 400 degrees. Then, turn the oven down to 350 degrees and bake for 45 minutes, until the crust is lightly brown on top. Let pie cool for 30 minutes, top with whipped cream or ice cream and dig in!

Viola! I hope you enjoy this delectable apple pie as much as I do.
