How to make it

  • Make the pie crust from your favorite pastry recipe. Fit it in a 9 to 10 inch deep dish pie pan. Chill it in the fridge.
  • Combine sugar through allspice.
  • Apples - fresh, sweet varieties: Red Delicious, Gala, Fuji, Jonagold, Jonathon. If you can't get any of these, then try McIntosh, Wineman, Honeycrisp, etc. Peel, core and slice the apples. Make the slices less than 1 inch thick. I have one of those corer slicers that make the apple into 8 slices but the slices are 1 inch thick so I have to slice each slice again. But it is still faster than doing the entire apple by hand.
  • Place the apple slices in a bowl of salted water and vinegar or lemon juice while slicing the apples to keep them from browning.
  • Preheat the oven to 425*F.
  • Drain the apple slices well. Layer the spices and apples in the pie shell starting with the spices:
  • Sprinkle ¼ cup spice mix on the pastry.
  • Arrange apples in tight formation on the spice mix.
  • Sprinkle ¼ cup spice mix on the arranged apples.
  • Continue the layering, ending with apple, until the filling is 1.5 to 2 inches above the top of the pie crust. Then sprinkle lightly with the spice mix. The apples will cook down.
  • Bake in the lower 1/3 of oven for 10 minutes. Turn the heat down to 375*F and bake for 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes.
  • When the apples are soft (stick a blunt knife in the middle to test), and the top is golden brown, remove the pie to cool!

    Phenomenal photos of your process. Was wondering about what your ingredients were for making your Oatmeal Pie Crust?
    5 days ago, when I looked on Group Recipes for Pie Crusts, there were only 5 Pie Crusts listed & very little diversity amongst them.
    So, if you would be so kind, please share your recipe for your Oatmeal Pie Crust.
    Thank you for your time & i appreciate your efforts. Your Mother is lucky. Why did she remove the "fake apple slices & leaves" while you were out mowing? They sounded like they would not only have been attractive but delicious as well.

    Sorry about the last picture in the step-by-step photos. Mother picked off all the fake apple slices and leaves while I was out mowing the lawn.

    The post baked picture shows the apples mounded up just like they were before going into the oven, but when the pie cools the apple slices collapse to form a nice pie.

    Took some of the dough trimmings and made fake apple slices and leaves. Camoflaged them on top the pie.
