You will not be disappointed with this classic apple pie recipe! You’ll make it once and it will be a family favorite for years to come.
When I was a kid, I got “into” baking. I was in the 5th grade and used to make treats and hand them out at my sister’s basketball games. All of the parents in the stands loved my baked goods — which typically were boxed creations. As I got a little older, I began to venture into uncharted territory, recipes I saw my mom and grandmas make and I tried them as well. One of these recipes was a Classic Apple Pie.
I’ve had this Crisco American Pie Celebration cookbook for a very long time. The copyright says 1989 and there’s no UPC on it, so I’m thinking I sent away for it. Remember how cereal boxes and food containers used to have offers on them? You’d send $2 and get a cookbook, or a neat set of measuring spoons. I saved those product UPCs and mailed stuff in All. The. Time.
This cookbook is where my Classic Apple Pie recipe came from. I’m pretty sure it’s the only recipe I’ve ever made in that book. And it’s apparent by the food stained recipe page! I’ve made a teeny modification to the dough, but overall I follow the instructions to a T and it works perfectly every time. I’m so excited to be sharing it with you.
I also LOVE to make dough in my food processor. I only discovered this a few years ago. I always used a pastry blender and it took what seemed like forever to make the dough, but it’s so worth it! And I cannot slice apples without my favorite apple slicer. It makes life so much easier!
