How To Make Apple Pie

 Apple pies are a wonderful dessert for any occasion. Be it Thanksgiving dinner or a simple family gathering, this dessert will effectively complete any meal. There are many different variations of this classic recipe, including cobbler, dumplings, and so on, but one thing remains constant: apples in some form or another. The most important part of making any apple pie is making sure that the apples used are fresh. If they are dried out or have begun to rot, they will not have the same texture or taste after cooking. In that case, it's better to purchase your apples instead of growing them yourself, because it can be difficult to tell if an apple is fresh unless you know what you're looking for.


How To Make Apple Pie


Ingredients

4 eggs

4 tbsp. lemon juice

1 1/2 cups sugar

1 tbsp. butter or margarine, melted

1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

3/4 cup flour (more if necessary)

2 tsp. cinnamon



Preparations

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. In a mixing bowl, combine eggs, flour, cinnamon, and lemon juice until the mixture is smooth. 

Add melted butter and vanilla to the mixture and mix well until the batter is uniform in color and the consistency is smooth. 

Place apple slices in a large bowl and toss them with the cinnamon and sugar. The apples should be coated with the cinnamon and sugar mixture evenly. Lightly oil (with cooking spray) and an 11 in. pie plate. 

Pour a thin layer of batter into the bottom of the pie plate, then lay apples evenly on top of the batter. Add more batter as needed so that it covers all of the apple slices (it will still be thin). Bake pie at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 25 minutes, or until cake bounces back when touched. 

When finished, remove from oven and top with caramel sauce (if desired). This can be made well in advance for warmer days to serve cold; cover with plastic wrap until ready to serve.
