Pie, Thanksgiving

Traditional Apple Pie

October 9, 2011

This weekend it’s Thanksgiving in Canada. Adam and I get to enjoy two thanksgiving dinners; one at my family’s house and one at his. It’s going to be really nice to see everyone and enjoy dinner, reminiscing, and of course dessert.

I made several small pumpkin tarts, pecan tarts and even mini pumpkin cheesecakes. But I had to make one large apple pie, as per some requests. I think I will also make a full sized pumpkin pie tomorrow for our second dinner.

This is my go to pie dough recipe, along with a simple apple filling. Check out my tips on preparing and baking an apple pie here.


For the filling:

mix together in large bowl:

  • 6-7 large tart apples, peeled and cored, sliced thin
  • 1-2 tbs. brown sugar
  • sprinkle of flour
  • splash of lemon juice
  • a few dashes of cinnamon

Combine, and pour into prepared pie crust. Top with second layer, cutting out vents on top. Brush with egg wash if desired, sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 375 for an hour, or until top is crisp.

Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadians! Hope you have a fantastic long weekend!
