American Apple Pie

An apple pie is prepared usually with a buttery pie crust in which the principal filling ingredient is apple. Served usually after a lunch or dinner, apple pie makes an excellent dessert to enjoy without any guilt. I love apple pie very much, i have already tried couple of apple pie with different variations, and trust me everytime i bake an apple pie, its a huge hit at home. Obviously apple pie is our family favourite especially for my kids. They can have happily few slices without any fuss as this apple loaded pie is definitely one of the best way to sneak apples in our diet. My today's post is an old fashioned apple pie which is often baked in American households. And this pie calls for two pie crusts with sliced apples coated with cinnamon powder,ground allspice,nutmeg powder and vanilla extract.

Though pie crust is easy to prepare at home, i opted for store bought pie crusts as i want to go for an easy breezy apple pie. I baked this pie for a small get together and we enjoyed thoroughly this apple loaded pie with few scoops of vanilla icecream. Seriously a scoop of vanilla icecream served along with warm apple pie makes an excellent dessert after a heavy meal.Am running this week's blogging marathon with an interesting theme, yes my theme for this week's blogging marathon is Kid's Delight-Fruit based recipe. Since this American apple pie is my kid's favourite, i couldnt resist to post this delicious pie for this week's theme.
