Easy Recipe for Making Wedding Apple Pies

Yum, yum, yum! I have actually never made a pie before, but I absolutely love apple pie. I’d love to be brave and make this!
Apple pie is one of my favorites (especially with a scoop of vanilla ice cream)!

While traditional wedding cakes are delicious, I knew that I was going to go a different route for my own big day. Apple pie is my very favorite dessert to bake and to eat, and I just couldn’t imagine serving our guests anything else. So, a few weeks before my wedding.

makes 1 pie

Ingredients:

  • 8 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 3 Tbsp flour
  • ¼ cup caramel sauce (recipe below)
  • 1 recipe pie crust , divided into two pieces and refrigerated for at least 1 hour
  • egg wash (1 egg mixed with 1 Tbsp water)
  • sanding sugar

Caramel sauce

  • ½ cup butter
  • 3 Tbsp flour
  • ¼ cup water
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar

Melt butter in a saucepan. Add flour to form a paste. Add water and sugar, and bring to a boil. Turn heat down and simmer for about 10 minutes. (You want the sugars to be melted in and not grainy anymore.) Note: you don’t want to turn this into a dark caramel sauce—just a good sugar/butter mixture that caramelizes once baked.

Instructions:

  1. Mix apples, sugars, flour, and cinnamon all together in a bowl.
  2. Roll out your pie dough circles and add one into a pie pan. Add the apple mixture into the pan and drizzle caramel sauce over apples. Cover with another crust and flute the edges. Cut vents in top, or use cut cookie cutters to cut out shapes in the tops of pies. (I do this before adding to the top of the pie.)
  3. Brush top of pie with egg wash, and sprinkle with sanding sugar. Bake pie in a 425-degree oven for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350, and bake for an additional 35 to 45 minutes, until top is golden and the juices are bubbling.
