Super Easy Apple Pie Recipe with Kids

My youngest preschooler’s favorite dessert is apple pie. Baking an apple pie was one of the A activities last week in our Activity-a-Day calendar.

This is a super easy pie crust recipe and adding a drizzle of Carmel on top of the apple pie filling makes this a yummy tangy treat! Are you doing anything with apples this fall? Tell us about it in the comments!

Be sure to have a rolling pin in making these apple pies!

Quick tips in making this yummy apple pie recipe

Press the pie filling in really tightly if you are using fresh fruit as it cooks down. If you want to make a variety of different treats with the same crust and filling, check out the book, Bake, by Nick Malgieri from Kyle Books publisher. Inspired by Nick, we used some leftover filling and added some chopped currants and cranberries to make some pastries for our tea party.

Yield: 1 9-inch pie pan
