Washington State Apple Pie
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 45 min. + cooling
This was a big hit with my husband! Very tasty and easy to put together! Will file this in my recipe collection to use again and again!
I have used this recipe for years now and I do not change anything except I do put in 1/2 tsp. of vanilla or Maple flavor when I mix the sugars and spices into the apples.
just perfect every time! Nothing to change or improve on- apples always perfect...what more can I say?
Made this a few days ago and it was a hit. I hadn't baked an apple pie in years (or any other flavor for that matter) so I carefully read all the comments before settling on this one. I used Granny Smith apples (6 a little larger than a tennis ball size) and that seemed about right. An apple peeler sure helped speed up the job, and did dot with butter.. Was curious about the pie the made with zucchini and may just try that next time for fun and see if I agree with Heavens_IL Thanks for the recipe, Dolores.
Baked this yesterday, first time I've ever made an apple pie where you cook the apples on the stovetop first. It tasted delicious. I used a combination of spartan and honeycrisp apples. Next time I make it (and there will be a next time!), I'm going to add an additional 1-2 cups of apples. I like a LOT of fruit in my pie!
My whole family loved this pie! I used Northern Spy apples and followed the recipe. This recipe is a keeper.
I did not like this pie at all, the apples had very little flavor after the water bath. I will stick to making apple pie the traditional way.
To answer ukiah: yes, you can cook the apples in a water bath. Cook for approximately 1 hour at 155 degrees F. I reduce the resulting juices to a syrup before adding back into the ingredients.
very good would love to know if I can can this in a water bath? i have lots of apples.
My husband's favorite dessert is apple pie. He declared this one 'very good'. The filling is tender and not too sweet.
