The Best Apple Pie recipe has been in my family for years! My grandma taught me how to bake pies when I was a little girl and this was one of the first pies I learned how to make.

As I grew up and started bringing this pie to family gatherings and holidays, everyone loved it soo much they ask me to bring it all. the. time!! Usually there is just a few crumbs left at the end of the night, people like it that much! 

It is super yummy when you top a fresh-from the oven warm slice of apple deliciousness with homemade vanilla ice cream!! 

The secret to perfectly thin apple slices every time

I use a food processor to slice my apples.

Seriously, it takes waay too much time to slice all the apples by hand, especially when you have to make the pie as many times as I do.

The slices are perfectly thin and and all your apples are sliced in less than 2 minutes when you use a food processor!! 

Don’t have one? Check out this one on Amazon that I LOVE! 

When you make your apple pie, just try the food processor and see how you like it. 

I promise it will be the best kitchen hack ever and you won’t regret it! Plus you can use the food processor for chopping, dicing, slicing, and even making french fries! I use mine all the time.

If you are taking the Best Apple Pie to any gathering, a pretty pie dish is A MUST!

Because, I get almost as many compliments on the pie dish as I do on the pie itself, I think you really do need this! Here’s what I LOVE about this pie dish. 

  • The ceramic pie dish cooks your pie perfectly and evenly! 
  • The pie dish is so pretty, you can serve the pie directly at the table!
  • It is super easy to clean!
  • And it’s the perfect size/depth for the Best Apple Pie!

Up next, these amazing Sour Cream Enchiladas were served at my wedding!

This looks amazing! I never even thought to use my processor to slice the apples, great tip!

Now I'm craving apple pie at work! I'll have to pick up some apples and try making this soon....VERY VERY SOON!!!!

Thank you Kristin. I do not need to brag about how delicious it is; all my family and friends will do that for me:-). Using the food processor is almost as essential as the apples. You will never go back to slicing it with a knife. P.S. You make an interesting argument about keeping Cable.

Hahaha! I hope your work day was able to get productive again, Valerie, without scheming too much about how you could make it work to go home over lunch and bake an apple pie! Let me know how your pie turns out.

This looks fabulous! I love that your family is so generous with their recipes, I've never understood the "family secret" recipes either.

Thanks Angi. I would much rather share recipes and let another person shine when they make my recipe.

I'm not really a pie person, but this does look good. I prefer crumbles, and the apple part of the recipe would be great for that.

Looks DELICIOUS!! I love apple pie. Visiting from the Booster Party.

Hi Kim, if you are talking about what I call an apple crisp, I love those too! In fact, I make one which my friend renamed 'Sin on a Fork Bite'. Really, it's the apples, the spices, and the topping that makes it delicious regardless of being pie, crumble or crisp! Thanks for stopping by!

Why thank you Teresa! (Not bragging or anything, but it is DELICIOUS!:-)

This looks delicious! I love this kind of topping! I think I'll make this tomorrow. I have to go to the store, anyway, so I'll get what I need. Thanks! I just got back from Apache Junction. My sister lives there now, I'm in Georgia. I love it there! In the winter, that is. lol We went to Sedona!!

Hi Jody, without sounding like I am bragging, this pie <em>is</em> delicious! Everyone loves it! Let me know how it turns out. You picked a great time to visit Arizona, the weather has been beautiful lately, and Sedona is always beautiful. I am glad you had a great trip!
