How To Make german apple pie

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Mix sugar, flour and cinnamon together in a medium bowl.
  • 2
    Sprinkle 3 tbsp of sugar mixture into prepared pie crust.
  • 3
    Top with 1/2 of the apples. Sprinkle with half of the remaining sugar mixture and top with remaining apples.
  • 4
    Sprinkle remaining sugar mixture over apples and pour heavy cream evenly over apples and sugar.
  • 5
    Bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes, reduce heat to 350 degrees and cook for an additional 55 to 60 minutes. Cool completely before serving. Note: I covered my crust with foil, until the last 15 minutes of baking. If you don't cover each apple with the cream, you may get a few pieces as I did, that shows the sugar mixture...its still just as delish!! Take my word for it...Yummo!!!!
