Cinnamon Apple Pie Tips
What kind of apples can you use to make cinnamon apple pie?
There are several kinds of apples you can use to make cinnamon apple pie. Granny Smiths are a great apple variety for pies
because their tart flavor balances the sweet ingredients while their firm texture means they keep their shape during baking. But feel free to also try Braeburn, Crispin, Cortland, Jonagold, Honeycrisp, Pink Lady and Winesap. Or use a combination of apples!
How can you make cinnamon sugar apple pie your own?
There are several ways to make cinnamon sugar apple pie your own. No white sugar? Use light brown sugar instead! Replace the from-scratch crust with two sheets refrigerated pie crusts. Or substitute 1-1/2 teaspoons homemade apple pie spice
for the cinnamon and ginger.
How long will cinnamon apple pie last?
Fruit pies made with sugar, like cinnamon apple pie, can be covered with plastic or foil and stored at room temperature for up to 2 days. After that, pop it in the fridge for 2 more days. You can also freeze the unbaked pie. Place it in the freezer until firm. Wrap tightly and return to the freezer for 2 months. Follow our steps for baking the frozen pie
when you’re ready to make it.—Julie Schnittka, Taste of Home Senior Editor
