American apple pie

Based on 156 ratings
"Apple pie is a real dessert classic in America and it is hard to imagine events without it. Since the star of the show is the apple, it's important to choose the right one. Common apple varieties that are suitable for baking are Boskop, Jonagold, Elstar, and Gala. Golden Delicious and Granny Smith can be used for green apple varieties. The important thing is that the apples should not be mealy and fall apart during baking. Whether they should be peeled or not is really a matter of taste. However, the filling with peeled apples is more homogeneous and velvety and is also more common."
