The Apple Pie Plate Recipe

June 12, 2014

For as long as I can remember my mother has had a pie plate that had a recipe for apple pie in the dish. She never made apple pie in it though, either lemon or peach ice box pie. Or sometimes we would get lucky and have banana pudding.

So this past Thanksgiving I decided to make the long time pie plate recipe, with the then 3 year old.

Needless to say he'll cook anything with his Meme.

I actually ended up making Pioneer Woman's Apple Pie crumble topping, I needed my other crust for a lemon pie. One you may have seen back around winter.

The Pie Plate Apple Pie

2 Pie Crusts
4 cups of sliced apples
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 lemon zested
1 tbsp lemon juice


Did your mother have any recipes you never made, but always wanted to?
