Guest Post: Better Than Apple Pie

Pin It
Here's a special Thanksgiving post from my lovely mother. Have a wonderful holiday!

Hi, I'm Andrea, Amy's Mom. I am so proud of her blog and happy that she inherited my love of cooking. I must admit, though, she is more adventuous than I am. After apple picking, I found myself with lots of apples and only one pie crust. I remembered I had this recipe somewhere, and after some searching, found it in my "recipe file." This is a great rustic pie and although it's not the best looking dessert, the smell and taste are amazing!

Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving.

Printable Recipe


  • 1 refrigerated pie crust
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp. corn starch
  • 1 tbsp. ground cinnamon
  • 4 cups thinly sliced peeled apples
  • 1 egg white, lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp. sugar 
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1-2 tbsp. butter
Preheat oven to 475 degrees F.

Prepare crust as directed on package. Place on foil lined baking sheet, pressing out any folds or creases.

Mix 3/4 cup sugar, corn starch and cinnamon in medium bowl. Add apples and toss to coat well.  Spoon into center of crust, spreading to within 2 inches of edges. Dot with butter. Bring crust over applesto form a border of about 2 inches, pleating or folding crust as needed.

Brush edge of crust with egg white; sprinkle with 1 tsp. sugar.

Bake for 20 minutes or until apples are tender and crust is golden brown. Cool slightly before serving.
