Picture of Apple Pie Recipe
This Thanksgiving, enrich your life with the best tasting and easiest to make apple pie recipe on the internet. After all, nothing is quite as American as apple pie except, perhaps, Thanksgiving (a large apology to the 4th of July, Memorial Day and National Talk Like a Pirate Day). And perhaps that is why you can't celebrate Thanksgiving without giving thanks to apple pie, by consuming large quantities.

However, before you can gorge yourself, you must first acquire apple pie. An easy way to do this is to go the store and buy some. A better way is to make it yourself. For starters, it tastes better when you make it yourself (especially when you use the best tasting recipe on the internet). It uses a handful of cheap readily available ingredients. Most importantly, it's easier to make than you might think and can be done relatively quickly. It is hands down one of the most rewarding, and tasty, things I know how to make.

This pie has won a blue ribbon at the Inaugural Instructables Pre-Thanksgiving Luncheon.

that.... is.... AMAZING! i totally have to make this!
We don't have maple syrup over here, is there something else I could use in its place?

You can probably just leave it out of the recipe (maybe add an extra pinch of sugar or something sweet). I also recommend peeling the apples first, which I didn't do in the project.

Where are you that you don't have maple syrup?

Although, I am making this again this year.

that looks really good!
My dad was wondering if you screwed up when you made this, he said he's never heard of an apple pie without peeled apples.
what's wrong with the peels? they're healthy and turn soft when you bake the pie.
no, they're not. they get stuck in your teeth, and it sucks.
introducing...drum roll please......TOOTHPICKS! *gasp*
And they get stuck in your throat.
not really
Yes. They do.

great instructable! i've made a similar pie and it tastes great.
to make this instructable better, you should probably put "skip to step 'blah' for the filling" and such.
Yummy! But I was a little worried after reading this, are there really rolly-pollies in it??

I think so?
Blech! >_< My little brother ate 5 rolly-pollies once, when he was really little. Someone bribed him with candy.
