Easy Apple Pie

Note from Chris: A couple of food blogger friends have been nice enough to contribute guest posts and recipes to help us out during our first few weeks with new baby. Today’s guest post is from a foodie friend right next door (literally, she’s practically the town over!), Melissa.

Hi everyone! I’m Melissa, author of I Was Born To Cook, and a big fan of The Keenan Cookbook! I was so excited when I heard the news that Chris and Rachel were expecting another baby, and even more thrilled when I read that their second baby boy had arrived! Naturally, I gladly accepted their request to have me write a guest post while they settle down as a new family of four.

When it comes to cooking and new babies, a few of the same words tend to pop into my head. Words like “quick”, “easy”, “simple”. And yes, “delicious”. Delicious can still easily be achieved when cooking and baking in a quick and easy way. And sleep deprived parents deserve delicious food!

I made this pie when I was using up the last of the apples that my daughter and I picked. I wanted something I could whip up in no time, without sacrificing taste. And that it was. So, I figured Chris and Rachel could use this recipe, you know, to just throw together in their spare time 😉

Congrats again to the Keenans…can’t wait to see pics of the new addition!

Easy Apple Pie


  • 2 pie crusts (homemade or store bought)
  • 5 large apples, peeled, cored and chopped (I used Liberty)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons AP flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Gently press one pie crust in a 9 inch pie plate.
  2. Mix apples with sugar, flour and cinnamon. Scoop mixture on top of pie shell. Place second pie crust on top of apples, and press together to bottom crust carefully. Cut slits in top crust to allow steam to release.
  3. Bake for about 30-40 minutes, until apples are tender.

      Mmmm… Agreed! Just a choice between vanilla or cinnamon ice cream…
