Classic American Apple Pie

Classic American Apple Pie

You’re probably wondering why my classic pie is made in a tart dish. That’s simple, I was making 2 other pies at the same time and I ran out of pie baking dishes, so this is the only thing I had left. But who cares,  right?

I’ve said this over and over again that making pies is super easy. I used to think that the pastry is so hard to make, but really it’s not. It’s basically butter and flour with ice water and some salt and sugar. And if you have a food processor it’s the easiest thing in the world to make. If you don’t you could use a pastry cutter as well and it will work just fine.

Ingredients

  • 2½ cups of flour
  • 8 tbsp of ice water
  • 2 sticks of frozen butter (1 cup)
  • 1 tbsp of sugar
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • about a dozen apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • ½ cup of brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
