We had lasagna, salad and bread for dinner with apple pie for dessert. Nothing says “welcome home” like apple pie, right?
Welcome Home Apple Pie
- 6 cups peeled and cored apples — Red Delicious and MacIntosh — sliced thin
- 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
- 1 tbsp. sugar
- 1 tbsp. cinnamon
- 1 tbsp. cornstarch
- 1 tbsp. lemon juice
Prepare the apple slices and toss with lemon juice to coat. Mix all other ingredients, then gently mix into the apples. Set aside for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally to evenly distribute topping. Prepare a double crust. Preheat oven to 400. Fill bottom crust with apple slices, top with crust lid and crimp edges to seal. Brush top crust with milk and sprinkle with granulated sugar. Cut a few vents in the top crust.
Bake at 400 for 30 min., reduce temperature to 350, turn pie 180 degrees and bake another 25 minutes. You might want to put a foil covered baking sheet under the pie in case the juices spill over.
