Ingredients

  • 4 large apples peeled, cored and sliced (I used 20 Ounce apples for baking, the hold their shape really well. Another good option would be Cortland, just make sure they're larger or add an additional apple)
  • A squirt of lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon if you really love cinnamon you could even add an additional 1 teaspoon to the listed amount
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 Tbsp. cornstarch

Instructions

  1. Place apples all ingredients into pot over medium high heat. Stir well to combine.

  2. Once the mixture starts bubbling, reduce heat to medium and cook for 10 minutes or until the apples have softened a bit (be aware, they will soften a but more during baking).

  3. Remove from heat and allow the filling to cool a bit before assembling your pie, as per the instructions of the dough you use.
