Your Grandmother's Apple Pie

Fall is here, it's in the air. The weather has dropped and you're doing your best to stay cozy and warm. Chances are, you're spending more time indoors and looking for ways to keep your crew entertained.

Gather your people into the kitchen and whip up an apple pie to serve after tonight's dinner!


  • box Pillsbury™ refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box (or feel free to make your own)

  • ½ cup unsalted butter

  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • ¼ cup water

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • ½ cup packed brown sugar

  • 8 Granny Smith 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.

  • Step 2

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.

  • Step 3

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.

Enjoy the cooler weather, enjoy your people, enjoy the pie!
