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
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. :)
Slice the apples (medium...not too thin and not too thick) and add flour, sugar, brown sugar, salt, and cinnamon to a bowl. Stir.
You have probably eaten several slices of apples because they are so yummy!
Now add a few more slices and mix again.
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.
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.
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!
