Monday's Bread Bowl: No Fail Apple Pie

A family tradition made simply

Baking a homemade apple pie can really sooth the senses as the yummy odor permeates through the kitchen. Premade pie crust and fresh apples (of the golden variety) make all the difference in our recipe. Here’s our rendition:

What you will need:

1 metal fork
1 cutting board
1 baking tray
1 pie pan
1 (15 oz) package premade pie crust found in grocer's refrigerated section
2 cups apples, sliced thin
1/2-3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
melted butter
pinch of salt

Cooking and Directions:

Preheat oven at 375 degrees. Roll out 1 piece of premade pie crust over and inside pie pan to form the bottom crust. Let the excess fall over the sides of the pie pan. Next, neatly arrange and pile apple slices inside the rolled crust. Sprinkle sugar, cinnamon, and salt over apple slices. Take a second piece of pie crust and roll on top of apple filling. Cut away and discard the excess so that the pie can be sealed inside both the top and bottom pieces of pie crust. Carefully close and pinch crust at edges with metal fork. Place constructed pie on top of baking pan. Brush top crust with melted butter. Bake in heated oven for 50-60 minutes. Let pie rest for at least 15 minutes before cutting into or serving.
