Granny Smith Apple Pie

Thursday, November 17, 2022
This is the best Apple Pie recipe from what I've been told if you love tart granny smith apples with a perfect balance of sweetness and plenty of cinnamon in a super butter flaky crust.

If I could only have 1 type of pie for the rest of my life it would definitely be a double crust Apple Pie made with Granny Smith Apples in a flaky buttery crust.

To me it's one of those things that taste like childhood. I always loved watching my Granny make all the pies in the kitchen the night before Thanksgiving and the smell of her Apple Pie baking in the oven. 

It took me a long time to perfect the perfect Apple Pie. Not overly sweet with plenty of cinnamon and a butter flaky crust. 

I actually put off sharing my Double Crust Apple Pie recipe for a long time because it's so basic but over the years I've learned there are a lot of you who love a good strong basic recipe. Logan just happened to text me today asking me to post this on my site so he could make it for his fiancé's family.

So here's how to make my recipe for Granny Smith Apple Pie:

Pork Chops With Apples

Tender Pork Chops with Apples, sage, rosemary, and garlic and baked with apple cider makes a delicious fall dinner recipe. The pan sauce from baking the pork chops is a must for drizzling over the top when serving.

What a better way to celebrate the changing of the seasons than with Pork Chops with Apples, a true fall favorite. 

I made these last week as the temperature here seems to be plummeting at night down to the 50's and I was ready to rejoice in the cool weather. 

The best part of the whole dish is the pork and apples infuse each other with a fabulous flavor combined with the herbs sage, rosemary and garlic. 

I mean who doesn't like pork chops and apple sauce? Think Peter Brady from the Brady Bunch. If you haven't seen that Brady Bunch episode use good old google and look it up! You'll be glad you did. Then jump on the pork chop band wagon and treat your self to a tasty treat! 

 We enjoyed this with twice baked potatoes but it is really divine with Skinny Mashed Yams.

Reeses Pieces Peanut Butter Chip Chocolate Chip Cookies are sooo good! 

Brown butter makes a delicious toffee like cookie base. These will quickly become a favorite cookie recipe.

At least that is what our family has decided.

Logan came home a few weeks ago to tell me he created the best cookie recipe ever over at his fiancĂ© Rileys families house. I of course was a little skeptical given my cookie connoisseur skills. So, I said, "How about you make them for me and I can be the judge of that." 

The following weekend he made another double batch and I'm here to tell you they were extremely addicting. I then made another double batch the following weekend so I could share his cookie magic with you.

This Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie base gives these cookies a delicious slightly nutty toffee like flavor. Then he added some Peanut Butter Chips and Reeses Pieces to send these threw the roof making them a favorite fall cookie recipe with the colors but sooo good they definitely need to be added to Christmas cookie trays too. 

I maybe totally obsessed with these.
