Debbie Lollo posted a “Best Apple Pie” recipe on Allrecipes (link). We’ve come to rely on this recipe, which uses about 4 lbs. of apples and no added sugar or fake sweetener. This genius recipe uses 3 kinds of apples instead of a lot of sugar to sweeten the pie. Key tips:
- Store-bought pie shells are perfectly fine to use.
- For the 9 apples, we like a mix of 3 Fuji, 3 Granny Smith, and 3 Gala apples.
- Braeburn or Jonathan apples might also be good.
- McIntosh apples are too mushy for pie.
