I’m not sure where this recipe came from. I remember making Apple Pie every year starting at about junior high minus a few years in college. These days I add a Table Spoon of Jack Daniels because that’s my favorite. My biggest tip is to make sure to add the liquid. When you mix the apples and everything else there is some liquid left. That’s important for the flavor. Last year I didn’t put it all in for some reason. I think I was afraid it would be soggy and it tasted terrible. Sad turkey day with lame apple pie. I promise if you follow this recipe, you will have the best apple pie.
Another note. I highly recommend that you make the crust from scratch. It’s actually very easy and tastes 100x better than lame store-bought crust or if you use premade dough. I have a great pie crust recipe that is sweet, I hope you will give it a try.Print
This is the world’s best apple pie. It calls for fresh lemon juice and jack daniels. Remember to use Granny Smith apples.
6 Granny Smith Apples
1 Cup Sugar
1 Table Spoon Lemon Juice (fresh squeezed)
2 Table Spoons Flour
1/8 teaspoon Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Cinamon
1 Table Spoon Jack Daniels
1 Table Spoon Butter
1 – Start by washing and peeling the Granny Smith apples.
2 – Core the apples.
3 – Cut the edge off because it usually has some skin left. Also, the edge is not symmetrical. Just get rid of them so the apple pieces are the same or similar size.
4 – Mix in the ingredients minus butter.
5 – Place apples on to pie crust. Add butter to the top right before adding the top crust.
6 – Bake 375 first 20 minutes then cover the edges if they are burning and reduce heat to 350.
(total cook time 1 Hour)
Granny Smith apples are recommended. Remember to include all the juices. Pour the juices on top right before adding the slab of butter.
