Homemade Baked Apple Pies

Homemade Baked Apple Pie Recipe

What’s more American than an apple pie?

And I love a good creative variation on it’s form and fashion. This takes my great grandma’s nostalgic filling and puts it into its individual little handheld snack. For an extra good time try with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. 

Micronutrient Spotlight: Vitamin C

Although oranges are one of the most commonly known sources of Vitamin C, one medium apple contains 14% of your daily recommended value of Vitamin C. Vitamin C is important for proper  immune functioning and its contributions to faster wound healing, as well as, helping to aid in iron absorption (due to its acidic nature). 


6 Granny Smith Apples

¼ cup sugar

¼ tsp cinnamon

1 Tbsp brown sugar

1 freezer pie crust


  1. Preheat oven to 400F;
  2. Cut the top off your apple and remove the core with a paring knife and spoon, leaving approximately ½ inch; 
  3. Chop the center of the apple into 1’ segments and mix together the sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon in a bowl and allow to saturate for 30-minutes;
  4. While the mixture is sitting, cut the pie crust into ½ inch strands;
  5. Place cored apple bottoms on a non-stick or lined baking dish and fill each bottom with cinnamon sugar + apple mixture;
  6. Lattice pie crust onto apples and cut off overhanging pieces to create a smooth edge;
  7. Bake for 25 minutes & Enjoy!!
