Homemade Apple Pie Recipe

Vacations and Apple Pie


We spent a week in the North Carolina mountains recently and it was oh so beautiful! We were even blessed with apple trees in the front yard of the cabin and the kids loved to pick them all.

Yes, they picked pretty much all the apples off of the tree, so I needed to start baking. I made applesauce, hand pies, cobbler, and this apple pie recipe.


Luckily, my mother-in-law was there to help me figure out how to actually make the recipes since there was very limited internet and I didn’t have a cookbook with me. Yay, for family vacations. 


Needless to say these are very rustic recipes. 😉 I made this particular recipe after I returned home, using the bags of apples we brought back to Florida with us.


I used my mother-in-law’s basic crust recipe and the rest was inspired by the Perfect Apple Pie recipe on Pillsbury.

This was my first attempt at making a homemade apple pie and I have to say it turned out great! I’ll definitely be trying this again as I may have a few more apples to use up. 😉


Don’t want to make your own crust, no worries! Grab a refrigerated pie crust or even a boxed pie crust at the store and just add the filling.
