Homemade Apple Pie – Deliciously warm and sweet homemade apple pie. A traditional, comforting autumn recipe favourite!
Apple pie is one of my family’s favourite autumn recipes, and I can’t believe I haven’t posted an apple recipe yet! So, today I bring you my warm and sweet Homemade Apple Pie. The filling is spiced with a mix of cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg, making this pie extra comforting.
I have also spiced the homemade pastry with a little cinnamon, too.

For the pastry recipe, I have used butter and vegetable shortening for an extra flaky pie crust. Butter for flavour, and shortening for tender flakiness. Make sure the butter, shortening, and water used in the pastry are very cold, and keep your pastry, once made, as cold as possible, too.
This helps prevent the fat from melting before baking, which will result in a tender, flaky crust. This also helps prevent shrinking of the crust, too!
