Grammy's All-American Apple Pie

Angela (Grammy) Derby


I guess Apple Pie has always been one of my most favorite pies! I can still remember my mom, in her little kitchen, peeling the apples and rolling out her delicious, flaky crust. She never had a recipe written down, but I think I got it right...this one tastes just like hers.

How to Make Grammy's All-American Apple Pie


  1. Heat oven to 425'F.

    Stir together sugar, flour, nutmeg, cinnamon and salt; mix with the apples until all are coated.
  2. Turn into pastry-lined pie pan; dot with butter. Cover with top crust, which has slits cut into it, or use a fork to make holes in the top. (This allows steam to escape.) Seal the edges and using your fingers, make a flute all around. Place onto a baking tray, to catch any spills.
  3. Cover edge with 2-3" strip of aluminum foil to prevent excessive browning; remove foil last 15 minutes of baking.
  4. Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Continue baking for 35 to 45 minutes, until apples are soft. Bake 40-50 minutes or until crust is brown and juice begins to bubble through slits in crust. If the top starts to get too browned, cover it with foil too
