4) Lightly flour your counter and roll out 1 of the pie crusts. Make sure that there is 1 inch overhanging the sides of the pie plate.

Apple pie is one of those things that just scream home to me. This recipe is so fool proof anybody can make it.
I use the same pie crust recipe that I use for my pumpkin pie, simply because thatís my go to pie crust. It never fails. Just make sure you double the amount of ingredients because you are making a deep dish apple pie so naturally you need 2 pieces of pastry. Whenever I make pie crust I make 3 or 4 batches and then individually wrap them and freeze them. This way whenever I need it itís ready to be thawed out overnight in the fridge and ready to use. And I donít know about you but having homemade pie crust in the freezer at all times, definitely makes me happy!
I am a huge apple pie lover and I have so many different variations of it, but this is a classic and you really cant go wrong with a classic now can you?!
Make this pie one time and I guarantee you will never buy one from a store again!
