Mom’s Apple Pie – Apron String’s Article Paula Deen.Com!


Okay, you KNOW I’m doing my happy dance so I don’t have to tell you that. But I will say that I’m so OVER THE MOON STINKIN HAPPY to be able to share with you my FEATURED article on PAULADEEN.COM! It’s up all this week so be sure to stop by & of course leave some comment love!

It’s a recipe that’s near & dear to me. It’s my Mom’s Apple Pie! And I’ve had this every year for as long as I can remember, and HELLO it’s just in time for Thanksgiving too! It’s something that I don’t go without EVAH on Thanksgiving. Something about your Mom’s cooking. I know there are a gazillion apple pie recipes out there but for me there is just one. THIS ONE. My Momma’s!

I have so many memories around this pie. But one of my favorites is (& my Uncle is probably going to shoot me for telling this, but hey, it’s my blog LOL & he might not even see it so here goes) when we were younger and at my Grandparents house over the holidays, my Mom made her signature Apple Pie, which EVERYONE loved & it was always a fight to get a slice. My uncle (Mom’s younger brother) loved it as much as me. I got my slice of pie and went into the den (where everyone gathered in my Grandparents house) & set my slice down on the ottoman & went back to the kitchen for what I’m going to guess was for some Chocolate Milk (the only way I drink milk tee hee, yes it’s true) & when I came back my Uncle had sat down in the recliner and put his feet down RIGHT SMACK INTO MY PIE! HELLO! Yes, my pie was ALL over his big ole feet. I was NOT happy! As a matter of fact, I cried. It’s only now that I can look back & find the humor in this. Probably since my Mom finally shared her recipe with me & I can make it whenever I please.

So MWAH MWAH MWAH! Thank you Momma! <3 u!

Yep that’s just one of the memories surrounding this pie! So run, click on over to Paula to see more of the story & of course to get the recipe!

Go ahead leave her some comment love! She’s going to be over the moon happy (I’m talking hyperventilating happy) that her recipe is featured on Paula Deen. Hello, if you know my Momma you KNOW Paula Deen is after all cooking royalty to her (& I, of course, think she’s the bees knees too!)

    Paula, this pie looks so yumm! And that crust recipe sounds like a winner! My favorite part about a pie is the crust. I really don’t care about the filling most of the time, so I will be trying your mom’s crust soon to see if it’s the recipe I’ve been searching for. Congratulations on the feature!

    PS: Do you intentionally bubble up the crust on the top or is it just drapped around the apples? I want that big bubbly bite on the picture!

      Ah, thanks so much Anamaris! That’s the heaping mound of apples underneath the crust that makes it bubble up like that ; ) Hope you love it, the crust is divine! Buttery & oh so flakey!
