Ever since my mom gave me my Grandma’s Perfect Pie Crust Recipe I’ve been craving apple pie. Luckily last October I bought a couple of bushels of apples that I froze up for occasions just like this. I have this great apple pie filling recipe that I use all of the time, I found it a couple of years ago, called the Perfect Apple Pie Filling. I thought that I would try marrying my grandma’s Perfect Pie Crust with my recipe for the Perfect Apple Pie Filling.
- ¾ cup light brown sugar
- ¼ cup all-purpose flour
- ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- nutmeg to taste
- 7 medium apples, peeled, cored and sliced
- 1 lemon, juice and zest
- ½ cup all-purpose flour
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 6 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
- ¼ cup rolled oats
- ¼ cup pecans, chopped
- ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 450°.
- In a small bowl, mix together, sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg.
- In a large bowl, toss the apples with lemon juice, then add the sugar mixture and coat the apples.
- Pour the apple mixture into a dough lined pie dish. See Flaky & Crispy Pie Crust.
- Top with Crispy Topping.

Of all the different kinds of pie, apple is my favorite. What’s your favorite?
