First task is to core and slice all of the apples
This little handy dandy tool made it soooo easy!!
My daughter wanted in on the action as well!
Then I peeled all of the slices.
Now, hang on to your hats folks because this is where my apple pie is different from all the rest!!! My Mamaw never cut up her apples into slices or into chunks and threw them into a pie crust and baked it. NO WAY!! That is why I do not like apple pie. I HATE to bite into a big piece of baked apple. Here is what my clever Mamaw did:
That's right!!! She shredded the apples. Back in her day she didn't have the convenience of a food processor. She shredded them using an old cheese grater. Trust me, IT'S TRULY DIVINE!!
Daughter again had to get into the action. She only wants to do the "fun" part!! haha
Then it was time to roll out the Pillsbury refrigerated pie crust. This crust is so easy to deal with. I must admit I love to make homemade crust and have a super easy recipe but using this product means NO MESS!!
This is what the apples look like all shredded.
Now it's time to fill the pie crust with the shredded apples! Yum-O
Then you completely SMOTHER your apples with a sugar, cinnamon and flour mixture. Even bigger YUM-O!
Now I'm just covering the pie with a top crust.
I forgot a step here. You're supposed to slice up half a stick of butter and put chunks all over the top of the smothered apples, along with a tablespoon of vanilla.
Pinch the sides to make it look beautiful!
AND, there you have it! A beautiful apple pie ready to bake!!
Here is the pie fully baked and a piece already stolen!! This is such a delicious pie! I can't get enough of it!!
