Recipe: Apple Pie | Ashlee Proffitt

This apple pie recipe is absolutely delicious! My sweet mother-in-law gave me the recipe and I just had to share it with you! I served this pie at our Thanksgiving celebration but it would be a great addition to your Christmas menu as well!


  • 3/4 cup ground walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons beaten egg
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons lemon juice, divided
  • pastry for double-crust pie (9 inches)
  • 5 cups sliced peeled tart apples (about 6 medium)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. In a bowl, combine the walnuts, brown sugar, egg, milk, 1 tablespoon butter, vanilla and 1/4 teaspoon lemon juice. Line a 9-in. pie plate with bottom pastry; trim even with edge of plate. Spread nut mixture over crust. (The nut mixture is amazing!)
  2. In a large bowl, toss apples with remaining lemon juice. Combine the sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt; toss with apples. Spoon over the nut mixture; dot with remaining butter.
  3. Roll out remaining pastry; make a lattice crust. Trim, seal and flute edges. (Clearly I did not do that and I still loved how mine turned out.) Brush top with additional milk if desired. Bake at 375 for 50-60 minutes or until golden brown.

Yield: 6-8 servings
