baked Mile High Apple PieI have always been the pie maker in the family! My favorite one to make is the Mile High Apple Pie. It's my masterpiece! I will show you what I do with a few secret important things.

Ingredients:

  • 4 lb apples (I use only McIntosh), peeled, cut in quarters, cored, sliced
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 Tbsp flour
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • dash of salt
  • 3 Tbsp butter, cut into small pieces
  • pie crusts*
  • a large pie dish
  • 1 beaten egg
cut apples
 

*I buy ready made crust. To me, pie crust is pie crust no matter how it is made. It gives me more time to make what I do best!

Steps:

  1. After slicing all the apples into a bowl, add flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, butter pieces and salt, then stir gently to coat all the apples evenly.
  2. cut apples
     
    adding lemon juice to cut apples
     
    adding flour to cut apples
     
  3. Roll out one crust larger than it is, gently lift from cutting board and place into the pie dish. Smoothing evenly over the bottom and over the edges.

  5. Put all the apples in the dish! Now here is one hint to making it a higher pie! You pile the apples in the center first. As you are putting more apples in, continue piling the middle. You will find a space around the apples and the crust. That's good! Your pie will not spill over, and you will have a high pie!

  7. Now, roll out the second crust as like you did the first, a little larger! Then carefully lift the crust and place it over the top of the pie. Making sure it is evenly draped enough from edge to edge.

  9. Now, with two fingers, pinch together the two crusts and do this all around the pie.
  10. Then take a knife and make two small slits in the top of the pie in three places around the center.
  11. Now, take the beaten egg (called an egg wash) with clean hands rub the egg over the whole pie! This will give the pie a beautiful golden shine when cooked.
