Fresh Apple Pie

The American Apple Pie is in many stories Johnny Appleseed’s favorite pie. The saying “as American as apple pie” describes things that represent the best of American culture.  This Apple Pie is one of the best. I hope you enjoy making and eating this wonderful pie. Try topping it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, so good.


Apple Pie

Apple pie hot or cold is wonderful. Apple pie is to me a classic all-American dish.

  • 6 tart green apples any good hard apple or a mix of apples
  • 1/2 cup raisins *optional cran raisins, sliced almonds, pomegranate seeds
  • 1/2 cup sugar white or brown sugar
  • 1 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 Tbsp flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1 pie recipe check out the various pie crusts in the recipes section


  1. Peel, core and thinly slice apples in a bowl, add optional nuts or dried fruit. Sprinkle with sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, flour and lemon juice, and salt; gently mix until thoroughly coated. Add filling into prepared pie dough lined pan. Add butter cut into small pieces. Cover with top dough and bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until dough is golden.
  2. To freeze the filling: Place a gallon size zip lock bag inside a pie pan, add the apple filling and press so it fits the pan. Close the bag with as little air as possible. Freeze, when frozen take out of the pie pan and that way it is easier to stack many pies ready to bake in the future. When ready to bake just place in a pie crust and bake, it will thaw as it bakes.
