  • Shred the apples into a large bowl. Stir in sugar, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. Mix well and place in bottom crust. Dot the top with 3 tablespoons butter.

  • On a cutting board, place rolled out (or packaged) pie crust. With a leaf or apple cookie cutter, cut shapes from the pie crust. Position the cutouts all over the top of the pie, leaving small spaces between cutouts for the vent holes.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Remove pie from oven and brush with 3 tablespoons melted butter. Return to oven and bake an additional 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Place a piece of aluminum foil under the pan in case it boils over.

I thought this was going to be a very spicy because it was so dark but I used Gala apples and this was a spectacular pie! The Gala apples really bring through the apple flavor. Read More

I tried this recipe but 12 apples were way too many. I wound up with enough filling for 2 deep dish pies piled almost 6 inches high but it wasn't nearly sweet or spicy enough. I may try again using only 6 apples but I'll probably just stick to a tried and true recipe. Read More

I loved the simplicity of this recipe. It is the perfect size for a good ole deep dish pie. WAY too much clove! It tasted like there should be a ham in the middle. I adjusted the spices to my own liking; 2 tsp cinnamon 1/2 tsp clove 1/2 tsp nutmeg. and it tasted like the pie my husbands grandmother has made for 60 years. Unfortunately hers just comes out of her hands she's never measured but this is basically her simple recipe. Read More
