Perfect Apple Pie Recipe
Thanksgiving and over eating…especially pie over eating…go hand in hand, right? I love pie, chocolate pudding pie, pumpkin pie with too much whipped cream, apple pie (specifically my aunt’s with the pretty crust) This Perfect Apple Pie by Sunny by Design looks like it might rival my aunt’s apple pie!
I’ve been working on my apple pie recipe for well over a decade (yes I’m that old) so I’m pretty happy with it by now. The crust is buttery and flaky and holds it’s shape nicely. The filling is sweet and tart and doesn’t run all over the plate when you slice it. The color is golden and even and not too brown. It’s good, really good. So good that I love to eat the leftovers cold for breakfast. But you don’t have to tell too many people that.
Pie making can be a pretty intimidating task. My first attempts were less than stellar. It took me quite a few tries before I figured out how to make something presentable. Then it took countless tries after that to figure out how to make it exactly how I wanted it to taste, look and feel. I take my apple pie very seriously.

1/4 cup all-purpose flour
