Today, I’m excited to share a couple of delicious apple pie recipes that I found online. If you love apple pies, then you’re going to love these recipes. These recipes may be different, but they have one thing in common – they’re both incredibly tasty!
First up is the 60-Minute Apple Pie Recipe by Tasty. This recipe is perfect if you’re in a hurry because it only takes 60 minutes to prepare! Yes, you heard that right! So, if you’re looking for a quick and easy apple pie recipe, then this is the one for you.
Let’s get down to business. Start by preheating your oven to 350°F. Then, peel and chop 6 apples into small pieces. In a large bowl, mix together 1/2 cup of sugar, 1/4 cup of flour, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, and a pinch of salt. Add the chopped apples and mix until the apples are coated.
Next, roll out one pie crust and place it at the bottom of a 9-inch pie dish. Add the apple mixture to the pie crust. Roll out the second pie crust and place it on top of the apple mixture. Then, pinch the edges of the pie crusts together to seal.
Cut a few slits in the top of the pie crust for ventilation. Brush the top of the pie crust with an egg wash (1 egg yolk + 1 tablespoon of water). Sprinkle some coarse sugar on top of the egg wash.
Bake the pie in the oven for 45-50 minutes or until the crust is golden brown. Let the pie cool for a bit before serving. That’s it! Your 60-minute apple pie is ready to eat!
Next up is the Fried Apple Pie by The Little Epicurean. This recipe is a bit more involved, but the end result is totally worth it.
To start, you’ll need to make the pie dough. In a mixing bowl, combine 2 cups of all-purpose flour, 2 tablespoons of sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Cut 1/2 cup of unsalted butter into small pieces and add it to the flour mixture. Use a pastry blender or your hands to cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse sand.
In a separate bowl, whisk together 1/2 cup of cold water and 1 egg yolk. Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture and mix until a dough forms. Roll out the dough and cut circles using a biscuit cutter or a round cookie cutter.
In a pan, cook 4 chopped apples, 1/4 cup of sugar, 1/4 cup of brown sugar, 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon, and a pinch of nutmeg over medium heat until the mixture thickens. Remove from heat and let cool.
Place a heaping teaspoon of the apple mixture onto one of the pie dough circles. Top with another pie dough circle and seal the edges using a fork. Repeat with the remaining dough and apple mixture.
Heat 1-2 inches of oil in a large pot or deep fryer to 375°F. Fry the pies for 2-3 minutes or until they are golden brown. Remove from the oil and drain on paper towels. Sprinkle the pies with some cinnamon sugar and serve warm.
Overall, both of these apple pie recipes are incredibly delicious! Whether you’re in a hurry or have the time to make something a bit more involved, there’s a recipe here for you. So, why not try one of these recipes today? Your taste buds will thank you!
