Homemade Apple Pie Recipe: How to make

Published on

The traditional American dish known as apple pie is prepared with a crust made of pastry and a filling made of apples that have been sweetened and spiced.

The apples are often peeled, cored, and sliced prior to being combined with sugar, cinnamon, and other spices. After that, the apple mixture is subsequently poured into the pie shell and cooked.

The crust is typically created with flour, butter, and a small amount of sugar, and it can either have a lattice top or a solid top depending on personal preference.

So you know, it is common practice to accompany apple pie with either a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dab of whipped cream when it’s brought to the table.

Apple Pie is considered a staple American dessert and is also well-known abroad. Although it is commonly consumed as a sweet course, you can also have it for breakfast or brunch if you so want.

Brush the lattice with egg wash
