Mama’s Apple Cider Pie

A knock-your-socks-off homemade apple pie recipe with a rich filling made with tart apples and sweet apple cider that's perfect every time.


Mama's quite the cook. In our family and among her friends, I’m pretty sure everyone would agree that she’s the go-to person for good cooking.

She’s known for her apple pie like Minnie’s known for her chocolate one (not the Terrible Awful, of course). When it’s someone’s birthday, they ask her for this pie instead of a cake.

I was going through some of the pictures on my phone and found that I’d taken a picture of it once upon a time so I thought (since I totally failed everyone by NOT taking pictures of the three recipes I was going to share with you from our Easter dinner this Sunday), I would share this with you!

A knock-your-socks-off homemade apple pie recipe with a rich filling made with tart apples and sweet apple cider that's perfect every time.

ingredients:

  • 2 pie pastries
  • 1 cup apple cider, plus more
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 6-7 cups peeled, thick-sliced tart apples
  • 2 tablespoons corn starch
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 egg white, beaten (optional)

instructions:

How to cook Mama’s Apple Cider Pie

  1. Combine apple cider and sugar in a large saucepan or skillet then bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-high, add apples then cook, uncovered, until apples are tender (about 8 minutes), stirring throughout cooking process.
  2. Drain syrup from apples into a 2-cup measuring pitcher. Add enough apple cider to syrup to measure 1 1/3 cups total liquid. Return syrup and apples to saucepan.
  3. In a small bowl combine corn starch, cinnamon and 2 tablespoons apple cider then stir well. Add cornstarch mixture to apples then cook over medium-high heat until thickened, stirring frequently. Stir in butter.
  4. Line a 9-inch deep dish pie plate with one pastry then pierce the bottom several times with a fork to vent. Spoon mixture over pastry. Cover with top crust then seal edges. Cut 4-6 small slices into top crust to vent. Or get snazzy like Mama and cut out decorative shapes.
  5. Brush crust with egg white (optional) then bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
