Flat Apple Pie

I first saw this recipe by the Pioneer Woman and absolutely loved the idea of a pie that makes for an easy weeknight dessert. I took Ree's recipe and tweaked it to fit my family's taste. I hope you enjoy this pie as much as I do!

I'm giving this recipe just like the roast I shared on our IG stories...I guess I'm a lot like my Granny. There are not many perfect measurements or baking times...just bake it to fit you! Let's get started.

Flat Apple Pie Recipe


5 to 6 Fiji Apples (you can use any apples you like. This is what I had at home)

2 tbsp flour (add more if your mixture gets a little watery)

1/2 cup of granulated sugar

1/2 cup of packed brown sugar

1/4 tsp of salt

1/2 tsp of cinnamon

2 PIllsbury Pie Crusts

Step One:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Remember to put peels on a paper towel for easy cleanup.

I peeled 8 apples because we usually eat apple slices once they have the sugar and cinnamon on them so I have to replace a few slices. I promise you will probably do the same. :)

Step Two:

Slice the apples (medium...not too thin and not too thick) and add flour, sugar, brown sugar, salt, and cinnamon to a bowl. Stir.

Step Three:

You have probably eaten several slices of apples because they are so yummy!

Now add a few more slices and mix again.

Step Four:

Let your apples sit for a bit. Put parchment paper on two baking sheets. Then place one pie crust in the middle of each sheet.

Step Five:

Put the apples in the middle of the pie crust and then fold the edges over the apples. You don't have to make it perfect. This is just for a quick dessert!

Place in the oven at 375 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes depending on your oven.

Step Six:

Enjoy! It's wonderful right out of the oven with Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream on top!

One apple flat pie will feed my family of 4 so you can have apple pie for dessert for 2 nights! Yay! :)

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family does! If you bake it, please send us a picture on our Instagram feed @theoldrivernest. We would love to share it on our stories.

We hope your day is as sweet as pie!

Blessings Friend,

Amber & Brooke :)
