Old Timey Apple Pie

applepie-1My husband has been reminicing about the homemade apple pies that I used to make. He talked enough to get me wanting an apple pie. I bought a bag of apples and got out my ‘Old Timey Apple Pie’ Recipe. I was particurilarly excited about making a pie because I finally figured out how to make the lattice pie crust and wanted to try it out. It wasn’t as hard to do as I once thought. I used to make the solid pie crust top.

We enjoyed the pie… However, if I ever make it again, I will have to adjust the recipe because it was way too sweet. That’s the thing about the old timey recipes, some are sugar-heavy, this recipe calls for 1 1/2 cups.

All-in-all, it was a pretty decent pie. We enjoyed it over the course of a few days. I enjoyed making the pie and plan to make another one someday with adjustments to the recipe, or maybe another recipe all together.

I hope you all have an enjoyable week.




My hobby seems to be collecting hobbies and crafts. There's so many things to make and do that I can't focus on one single one for very long at a time. I blog to share my latest craft or thoughts with folks and hopefully get their thoughts and suggestions too.

      That’s the one great thing about homemade cooking, being able to learn from your efforts, adjusting the recipe and trying again. 🙂

      I don’t think I ever had a ‘shoo fly pie’. I had to look it up. It looks very deliciously sweet.
      I agree, there’s something about a homemade pie that makes it appetizing even if it’s not perfect. For me if the pie looks halfway decent I feel I’ve won half the battle right there. lol 🙂


  1. My husband used to talk about his mom’s apple pie, and no matter how I made my pie, it was never quite as good as his mom’s. His mom died before I met my husband, so I could never ask her what the secret was. Fortunately, our son-in-law’s mother makes that perfect “mom” pie, and the son-in-law has learned his mom’s secrets!

      What a bittersweet situation. It’s a shame you can’t find out what her recipe was. The perfect pie sounds divine. I bet your husband appreciates your efforts to try and make him a Mom pie. I hope your son-in-law shared the secret with you. Making the special pie would be a tasty accomplishment. 🙂
