Old-Fashioned Apple Pie

Rating: 3.5 stars 1495
The words "apple pie" conjure warmth, aroma, taste, and togetherness. This apple pie recipe is filled with Granny Smith apples and is tucked into a buttery pie crust. To make this apple pie recipe even sweeter, serve it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Apple Pie Bread Pudding

Day-old brioche works best for soaking up the custard mixture in this hybrid dessert. The sweet-tart apples are a nice counterpoint to the rich pudding.

Apple Rose Tart

Apple tarts deliver a more concentrated apple flavor than the more common double-crust pies, and you don't have to wait hours for them to cool. Using different apple varieties pays off in both taste and beauty here. A peeled Granny Smith makes a tart center; unpeeled Pink Ladies give the outer petals a delicate blush. A mandolin makes quick work out of thinly (and evenly!) slicing the apples, and a little grated ginger mixed with apricot jam provides a spicy-sweet base that lets the fruit truly blossom.

Apple Pie
