Preparations

Suggestion: Place all ingredients in one area before starting the preparations to make sure you do not leave anything out of the recipe.

  • Preheat the oven to 350
  • Wash, peel, core and dice (¼” to ½”) the apples. [NOTE: I left the skin on in two of three pies and find that it is best to remove the skin. The result is a firmer and better tasting custard / pie.]
  • Remove pie crusts from the refrigerator. Carefully unroll one crust and place in a 9″ deep dish pie plate and set aside. Leave the other crust rolled until later.
