Taste Buds: Deep Dish Apple Pie

This deep dish apple pie inside recipe is from my great family vault of recipes. Simple yet oh so perfect this is one of those staple recipes I come back to time and time again as a desert that everyone loves. Perfect for Thanksgiving or any large get together.

First Make ‘The Perfect Flaky Pastry Pie Crust’


2 cups of sugar
¾ cup flour
2 teaspoon of nutmeg
2 teaspoon of cinnamon
¼ teaspoon of salt
10 Large Golden Delicious Apples (about 3lbs)
1 Lemon
¼ cup milk

peel and dice cut apples into equal sized pieces



squeeze a little lemon juice into the bowl to keep the apples from browning


mix all ingredients, except the milk, with the apples in a large bowl until all the apples are well coated.



Roll and put the flaky pie crust into a deep dish baking pan.


pour the apples into the flaky pastry crust


Dot the top of the apples with small pieces of butter


Cover with the other half of flaky pastry crust and then here is the secret of why this crust comes out oh so yummy, you need to spread the milk on top of the crust with your fingers evenly wetting the entire crust top.


Dust the top of the pie with sugar and cinnamon


Bake at 425 for an hour. Until the top is golden brown and the apples are cooked. Let the pie sit for 4 hours before serving to settle.


Serve warmed with vanilla ice cream.


Let your taste buds enjoy this Deep Dish Apple Pie. It is one of my favourites and always reminds me of the wonderful women in my family.
