whole apple pies


Happy π Day, Tumblr!

This year, I got my very own apple pi to celebrate!  (Get it? 😁)

Pro tip:  Just like π is not a whole number, apple pi cannot be eaten whole.  Sitting on it does not help, either.  I recommend demanding your human cut your apple pi into more manageable slices.


Whole-Apple Apple Pie!

My Recipe

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Cut the top off and cut a square around the core. Pull it out (with a spoon if necessary).
  • Scoop out the insides and mix with brown sugar (to taste, I used 1/3 cup for these three) with a pinch of ground cinnamon, set aside juices left in bowl.
  • Cut dough into ½ inch to ¼ inch slices (I used the store brand-ready-to-go kind as I’m hosting a dinner party and have other dishes to make!)
  • Basket weave the strips into a pretty topping.
  • Mix an egg white into the brown sugar mixture left over from the apple filling.
  • Brush on egg white/brown sugar. Place apples in deep pan with about a ½ inch of water. Cover in foil and bake at 375 for 15 min. Uncover, and continue baking for about 40 min or until tops are golden brown <3
  • When pies are done let them cool on a baking rack for a minute or two then serve with vanilla ice cream for a creative down-home American dessert!
