Go pick your favorite apples - be sure to get a variety! A few tart and a couple sweet will make a great pie filling.
Here’s the deal. When you make your own pie crust, pies are not super easy to make. When you purchase a pre-made pie crust, pies are super easy to make.
Add the filling ingredients of your pie, in a medium bowl, combine the sugar, flour, butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and salt. Mix well and add to the apples.
Stir until apples are coated completely.If you decide to abandon the pie and just eat these yummy apples as or even bake them and eat them, we'll understand!
Use a fork to poke small holes into the bottom crust. Fill with apple mixture, packing them in tight with as few gaps as possible.
Top with the remaining crust. Be sure to cover the edges well, then seal both crusts by tucking them under around the edge and creating a ripple at the seams using your fingers.
Brush the egg yolk over the surface of the top crust and cut slits. Place the pan on a rimmed baking sheet to avoid dripping and bake.
When the crust is golden, remove from the oven and let cool completely before cutting and serving! Cover loosely with plastic wrap before placing in the fridge!
