Cooking with Pyrex- Grandma Ople's Apple Pie

Here is another awesome recipe that I would like to share with you...soooo goood!

Grandma Ople's Apple Pie:


2 Pie shells (Frozen) 9 Inches deep
6 Red delicious apples (peeled and cubed)
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 Tsp Nutmeg
1 Tbs Vanilla Extract
1/2 cup Butter
3 Tbs All purpose Flour
1/2 cup White Sugar
1/2 cup Light brown Sugar
1/4 cup water minus 1 Tbs


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

  • Peel & cut 6 Red Delicious Apples, set aside in large PYREX bowl.

  • Melt Butter in saucepan. 

  • Stir in Flour to form a paste.

  • Add White Sugar, Brown Sugar, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Vanilla Extract & Water.

(For the water: measure 1/4 cup and take out 1 Tablespoon of water from the 1/4 cup.)
Bring to a boil, make sure the syrup is thick!

  • Mix the Syrup mixture with the apples in a large  PYREX bowl.

(Save enough syrup mixture to glaze for the top of the pie crust)

(Note: Mix with your hands, will be messy but you must coat all of the apples with the syrup mixture)

  • Brush bottom of crust with the egg whites ( 1 egg) to keep it from getting soggy.

  • Add the Apple Mixture into Pie Crust.

  • Add the top of the pie crust while frozen. Be careful! You do not want to break the crust for the top layer.

  • Add decorative slits on top of crust.

  • Brush the remaining Syrup on the pie crust.
(I added Pale Pink Sugar on top to coat and give a little taste. My friend bought this for me in TJ Maxx, not sure where else you can find this)

Place the pie in the oven for 1 hour. I left it in for 1 hour and 25 minutes so the apples could be soft enough.
I also brushed the syrup on twice total, once before I put it in the oven & once 30 ish minutes while it was cooking and sprinkled extra Pale Pink Sugar.

The end result.....

My two home made pies!
