Golden & Delicious Apple Pie

There are so many reasons why fall is such a great season (yes, half of them are food). In addition to sweater weather and gorgeous walks in red and orange transformed parks, fall spices up your menu with some of your favorite seasonal fruits and veggies.

One of my favorite weekend activities in the fall is apple picking, and I’ve already gone once this season so far! This may or may not have something to do with my favorite fall dessert… But if you are thinking of taking a trip down to a nearby apple orchard this season, plan to go soon – the apple crop was pretty low this year and you don’t want to miss out!

Anyway, the recipe below is FLAWLESS and the pie came out so delicious that I just had to share. It’s never too early to start celebrating the changing of the seasons and CATC will be enjoying the benefits all week with an apple recipe series – sorry bananas, but we’ve moved on! x

Note: This pie tastes incredible room temp. or warmed, or with a scoop of delicious San Bernardo ice cream (I ate it with Italian Cheesecake flavor and let’s just say between two people, the entire pint disappeared so quickly… YUM).

Golden & Delicious Apple Pie

Prep Time: 25 Minutes     Cook Time: 45 Minutes     Total Time: 1 Hour 10 Minutes

Let’s Get Started:

6 cups thinly sliced apples, about 6 medium apples
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp Apple Pie Spice (Nutmeg, Cinnamon, All-Spice)
1 Tbsp lemon juice (I used juice from a Limoneira Lemon, and the fresh taste is so different from grocery store quality!)
2 Pillsbury pie crusts (I’m all for making as much of a recipe from scratch as possible, but time restrains kept me from doing so this time… plus this crust is delicious!)

Let’s Get Cooking:

Preheat oven to 425*. Place 1 pie crust in an un-greased 9-inch pie plate, pressing firmly against sides and bottom. In a large bowl, mix filling ingredients and spoon into crust. Top with second crust. Cut a few slits in top of crust before baking.Bake 40-45 minutes, or until crust turns golden brown. Cover edge of crust with tin foil for the first 15 minutes of baking, so that it doesn’t burn! Let cool for 2 hours before serving. Enjoy! 🙂

Let’s Get Creative:

I prefer a more traditional apple pie, but you could of course add more ingredients to the filling (maybe some nuts?) and get more creative with your toppings. San Bernardo offers so many amazing ice cream flavors, my other favorites Cannoli and Italian Biscotti could be delicious pie toppers as well. 😉

Stay Classy! xx
