I love apple pie! It’s one of my favorite things about Thanksgiving! But the holidays aren’t the only time to make it, especially when it’s this easy!
Simply saute your apples in some Chef Shamy Cinnamon Honey Butter with a little sugar, a pinch of nutmeg, and a roux. Then dump the filling into the crust and bake!
Cooking the apples before putting them in the crust allows for the crust to get done but not burn while you wait for the apples to cook. It also cooks out some of the moisture from the fruit so you don’t have a soggy bottom (Mary Berry, anyone?).
The hardest part of this pie is the lattice crust, but thanks to these handy dandy photos, you’ll have a professional looking pie!

6-8 Granny Smith Apples
1/2 Tsp Nutmeg
1/2 Cup Sugar

- Line your pie dish with enough dough to reach about 1/2″ from the top.
- Carefully add the apples.
- Roll out your other dough to about 12″ and cut into 3/4″ strips
- Follow the photos above to achieve the lattice pattern, then remove any excess with scissors and pinch together the strips and the dough in the bottom.
