(Semi) Homemade Deep Dish Apple Pie

1. Gather your ingredients.
1 refrigerated pie crust (bottom only)

1 c. white granulated sugar
1/3 c. all purpose flour
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. cinnamon
dash of salt
8 cups peeled, sliced apples (5 large)

1 c. all purpose flour
1/2 c. firm butter (or margarine)
1/2 c. brown sugar

2. Preheat your oven.

3. Wash, peel, de-seed and slice your apples and place in a medium/large bowl. Then dump all the filling ingredients (sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt) on top. Give it a good stir and let it sit and get all gooey while you do the next steps.

4. Cut your stick of butter into 1" slabs, place in a bowl. Add flour and brown sugar.

5. Using a fork, cut the butter into the sugar and flour.

6. Keep doing that until it the clumps are about pea-sized.

7. Place room temperature pie crust into an ungreased deep dish pie pan. Flute edges if you must (i'm not so good at this part). Then dump in the yummy, ooey, gooey apple slices.

8. Sprinkle the ENTIRE flour, butter, sugar mixture over the top of your apples. (forgive the picture with one pie and the mix not on it....kinda confusing i know. i made 2 pies).

9. Line your bottom oven rack with aluminum foil (don't skip this, you'll be sorry if you do---dripping gooey all over your oven), then put pies in the oven for 50minutes.

10. After 50 minutes, cover the top loosely with aluminum foil and bake another 10 minutes. Don't skip this step either or your topping will burn.

11. Remove from oven to a cooling rack and cool 2 hours to allow it to set up before cutting.



  1. That second pie is for me, right? You truly are one of the best cooks I know!
