You can’t have an Apple Unit Study without making some apple pie.
This is my fool-proof & delicious apple pie recipe – perfect for kids to make, but delicious enough that you could serve it for Thanksgiving supper!
We’ve actually made no less than five apple pies from this recipe in the past couple of weeks – this kids’ kitchen apple pie recipe is that good.
This delicious apple pie is super easy for the kids to make as there are less steps than in a traditional pie recipe, and there are no tricky baking techniques. Normally, you would want to be careful to not overwork a dough, but this easy pie dough can even be played with by children without effecting the final product.
I taught Miss G to weave her lattice topping off of the pie, “pick it up” with a rolling pin, and then roll it overtop of the pie, before sealing the ends with a fork – but you could alternatively cover the pie with cookie cutter pie dough shapes.
I perfected this recipe several years ago, well before Miss G or any notion for clean eating — so there is quite a bit of sugar in the filling. This could easily be substituted by honey or a raw sugar, but we haven’t tried that yet so I cannot vouch for the results. There are a couple of ingredients that may seem a bit odd in a dessert (like apple cider vinegar) but trust me, it will turn out delicious. (Just make sure to use a good quality apple cider vinegar, if possible.)
