Just-Like-Mom’s Easy Apple Pie Recipe

Just-Like-Mom's Easy Apple Pie - I simply LOVE this apple pie recipe! I used Honeycrisp apples, which was WIN. It's the perfect pie for Thanksgiving! |

I make this pie every year for Thanksgiving, but it’s also a great pie for Christmas!

For this pie, I took a recipe from allrecipes and tweaked it to my liking. I used the basic cooking method, but added a few extra things and coated the apples. I also used Honeycrisp apples instead of Granny Smith apples.

Trust me when I say: It is delicious! I hope you give it a try.

  3. Melt butter over medium heat in a pot, stir in flour to form a paste. Then add in water, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and 1 tsp of nutmeg.
