Grandma's Best Recipes: Apple Pie, Grandma's Way

Flavors from Memories – Apple Pie from Grandma's Kitchen

Apple pie is an autumn favorite and comfort food at its finest. Grandma's apple pie takes us on a flavor journey into the past when fresh apples were picked from the garden, and the kitchen smelled of cinnamon and cardamom. Today, we will delve into how to make a traditional apple pie – just as grandma taught us back in the day.



150 g of butter
1 dl of sugar
1 egg
3 dl of wheat flour
1 tsp of baking powder
1 tsp of vanilla sugar

4-5 medium-sized apples
1 tsp of cinnamon
2 tbsp of sugar


Preparing the dough:

Beat the softened butter and sugar until creamy.
Add the egg to the mixture while continuously beating.
Mix the dry ingredients together and add them to the dough.
Mix until you have a smooth dough.

Shaping the base:

Grease a pie dish (approximately 24 cm in diameter).
Press the dough onto the bottom and sides of the dish.

Preparing the apple filling:

Peel the apples and remove the cores.
Slice the apples into thin wedges.
Spread the apple wedges over the dough base.
Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar over the apples.


Bake the pie in a 200-degree Celsius (392-degree Fahrenheit) oven for about 25-30 minutes or until the top is beautifully golden brown.

Serving suggestions:
Serve the apple pie warm with vanilla sauce or ice cream. The pie also tastes excellent when cooled, allowing its flavors to meld. Apple pie is an autumn classic suitable for both everyday enjoyment and special occasions.

In conclusion:
Grandma's apple pie is like a hug on a plate. Each slice tells a story of family moments, laughter, and warmth. When you yearn for a taste of nostalgia or want to delight your loved ones, grandma's apple pie is a sure choice. It's simple but oh-so-perfect – just like grandma's recipes usually are!
