Mom's Apple Pie

Thursday, June 13, 2013

It's a little known fact that my husband LOVES a homemade apple pie. And lucky for him, my mother adores him and will make him one at the drop of a hat. I've been a little leery of making an apple pie for him, mainly because it's a staple dessert here in the south! And let's be honest, who wants to be the one to mess up an apple pie? Yeah, me neither.

Mom was here awhile back and said she was going to make the Mr's favorite. I decided that day I was going to learn how to make this deliciously smelling dessert! Turns out, it's pretty easy to make.

What you'll need:
Pillsbury Pie Crusts (2 pie crust inside)
2 — 21 oz cans Apple Pie Filling (get the generic brand)
1/2 cup of sugar
1 tbsp of margarine
1 tbsp of sugar  

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Unroll one of the pie crusts in the bottom of your pie dish. In a separate bowl, mix together the two cans of apples and the 1/2 cup of sugar. Pour the mixture in the pie dish. Next, unroll the second pie crust over the apple mixture. Seal around the edges with a fork, then poke a few holes with your fork through the top of the crust. Before placing the pie in the oven, cut up the tbsp of margarine over the pie crust, and sprinkle the tbsp of sugar over the top. Bake for 40 — 45 minutes or until golden brown.

***This is my mom's recipe, and yes, it's that easy! Mom said to be sure you use the off brand for the apple pie filling because the apples are a little more tender than the name brand.***

This would be a perfect recipe to make for Father's Day! Just pair it with some vanilla ice cream... that's how the Mr loves to enjoy his slices!
