Easy Apple Pie Recipe

Easy Apple Pie

Or as my husband calls it “Easy as Pie Apple Pie”! This is the recipe that my family has been using for apple pie for as long as I can remember. We have it with Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner, and sometimes just because.

This recipe is so easy, I decided that this would be my first attempt at a recipe video! So, bear with me on the video, I was still learning. And since then, I’ve done a few more videos, but decided they aren’t my forte. 

Easy apple pie is not a traditional pie. You don’t have a crust, but you pour the crust on the top and it bakes into the apples. I’ve been told this is almost more of a streusel, but I’ve only ever known it as pie.

The recipe is simple to remember, too, since its one of almost everything. One cup of flour, one cup of sugar, one stick of butter, one egg…. It was a long time before I ever wrote the recipe down because I just knew it. 

Step by Step

Preheat the oven to 350F. Peel and chop the apples into bite-sized chunks. You can leave the peels on if you’d like. I find that an apple wedger works really well then I cut it into pieces from there. 

Place the apples in a pie pan and sprinkle with cinnamon. 

In a large mixing bowl, combine all of the other ingredients. It will form the consistency of a cake batter. 

Pour the batter over the apples, trying to even it out as much as possible. The batter doesn’t have to cover everything, though. 

Bake the pie for about 45-60 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.

  1. This sounds like it’s super easy to make – almost like a apple crumble but with more substance on top. YUM! Going to try this one. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

  2. Amazing pie, i love apples, but I havent tried this though. Not sure why, but I think I need to try it. Thank you for sharing it!

  3. I love that you did video! This totally reminds me a streusel but I can see pie. Also are you cutting/peeling by hand, if so amazing! I have a little apple peeler machine and it is the only reason I make apple anything.

  4. Yep, really easily and quickly done. We make this version in my home too, especially my sister in law alway start making it at the end of summer because apples can be found everywhere in my place.
