Granny Opal’s Apple Pie

As one can plainly see I couldn’t wait to enjoy this delicious product of my own making


Apple Pie is one of the tastiest creations ever invented. No matter where or whose recipe you follow ingredients are similar. Me? I Googled “Apple Pie”. This particular creation caught my eye because it was named “Apple Pie by Grandma Ople”. That was my mothers given name (though she spelled it Opal)—which she hated—she always told us youngins’ when we was coming up. When she started school she told them her name was Frances Opal. Well, anywho, that’s another story.

So here is the ingredient list:

  • 1 9-inch double pie crust
  • 8 medium Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 1/2 c salted or unsalted butter (I prefer salted)
  • 3 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 c water
  • 1/2 c sugar
  • 1/2 c brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

Preheat oven 425F. Place bottom crust in oven to crisp for 9 minutes. Remove and let cool. Melt butter in saucepan. Stir in flour to make paste. Add water and sugars. Bring to boil. Reduce to simmer. Place apple slices in mixing bowl, stir in lemon juice. Mix w/sliced apples, cinnamon & nutmeg. Place apples in bottom crust and slowly pour paste over the ingredients. Next, place the second thawed crust over the added ingredients making sure to crimp edges with a fork and poke several holes in the top layer.

Bake the completed pie at 425F for 15min. Reduce the oven to 350F and continue baking for 45min. Remove from oven and let cool before serving.

Note: if you really feel adventurous instead of full crust cover with a Lattice work top crust cut in 1inch slices.
