The Perfect Apple Pie #Recipe

While I do not have a Grandma Ople, someone does and she sure does know how to make an apple pie.

I cannot take credit for the incredible photo above. My mama is the baker behind this delectable creation!

Recently, my mom received a box of apples from her sister who travels to the mountains of North Carolina every weekend. These apples are some kind of fantastic. My mom was kind enough to share them with me and she also asked if I had a favorite apple pie recipe. 

I told her that I have always baked Grandma Ople's apple pie and it never disappoints. Now, my mom can bake an apple pie without a recommendation and is probably the best baker I know, but she knew I had a favorite and wanted to try it out. 

Her pie was perfect. This recipe is tried and true at over 15k reviews! 

Pie crust *Grandma Ople has a recipe for this but my mom and I use store bought.
1/2 Cup unsalted butter
3 Tbsp all purpose flour
1/4 Cup water
1/2 Cup white sugar
1/2 Cup packed brown sugar
8 Apples, peeled, cored and sliced

  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Melt the butter in a saucepan. Stir in flour to form a paste. Add water, white sugar and brown sugar, and bring to a boil. Reduce temperature and let simmer.

  • Place the bottom crust in your pan. Fill with apples, mounded slightly. Cover with a lattice work crust. Gently pour the sugar and butter liquid over the crust. Pour slowly so that it does not run off.

  • Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Continue baking for 35 to 45 minutes, until apples are soft.

My only tweak is to add cinnamon to stove-top caramel mixture. It's just my personal preference but it isn't necessary. You'll end up with a pie just like the one pictured and your family will be so happy! Give this recipe a try for Thanksgiving and be sure to post a picture and tag Mommy's Block Party! We love seeing your bakes.
