This month’s #BakingBloggers theme is Holiday Pies. Pie is a favorite in our house. We love all sorts of pies. This Amazing Apple Pie is one my husband has been working on and modifying for years, it is an absolute favorite. This pie is requested very often and is likely what my husband is most famous for creating in our family.
We live near a farm area referred to as Apple Hill. It is chock full of apple orchards where you can go and pick apples right from the tree. There are also a few places that make amazing desserts including pies, tarts, hand pies and many other tasty apple goodies. This recipe started from a recipe from one of the farms, but as I mentioned, heavily modified over the years.
There are some amazing pie recipes from the other Baking Bloggers, Be sure to check them all out, I can’t wait to try a bunch of these! Also check out past recipes created for Baking Blogger events.

- 1 tbsp. cornstarch
- 1 ½ tsp cinnamon
- ¼ tsp nutmeg
- Dash of salt
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- Cut butter into cubes. Combine flour and butter in a food processor. Mix well to crumble stage.
- Add 6 T cold water slowly through the tube feed while the food processor is running. Mix just until the dough comes together. Be careful not to over mix.
- Roll into a ball and chill in refrigerator for 15 minutes.
- Roll half of the pastry to 1/8-inch thickness on a lightly floured surface. Place the pie crust in a 9-inch pie plate. Trim off excess pastry along the edges. Set aside.
- Peel and chop apples into bite sized pieces. Combine the apples with the rest of the ingredients and toss to combine. Fill pie crust with the apple mixture.
- Roll the remaining pastry to 1/8 inch thickness to fit the top of the pie. Place over the top of the filled pie, crimp edges and cut off excess. Cut slits in the middle to allow air to vent.
