Crust: 10 inch double pie crust
Prepare pie crust and put in the refrigerator until needed. Pie Crust should stay cold until you put it in the oven.

Preheat oven to 375 F

In a large bowl place

8 cups peeled and sliced Granny Smith Apples ( about 8 medium apples )

In a medium bowl combine

1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Add to sugar mixture and mix well.

4 tablespoons butter; melted
1 - 8 oz carton vanilla yogurt
1 teaspoon vanilla

Pour mixture over sliced apples and stir until apples are coated evenly.
Put apple mixture into refrigerator. Take out pie dough and roll out as directed.
Pour apple filling into unbaked pie crust. Moisten pastry edge with water and cover with top crust. Fold top edge under bottom crust, flute edge.

Brush with 2 tablespoons melted butter, sprinkle with 3 tablespoons sugar. Cut silts or design on top of crust to allow steam to escape.

Bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until filling in center is bubbly and crust is golden brown. Cool until barely warm or to room temperature before serving.

Yields: one 10 inch pie


  1. Oh my! I just finished making apple cinnamon muffins, and now you have given me an urge to make an apple pie. Oh how wonderful it looks. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I guess I will baking an apple pie on my day off this week. I'll let you know how mine turns out. Stop by soon. I so love it when you visit. Thanks again sweetie. Country hugs, Sherry

  2. This looks fantastic! My husband has been asking for an apple pie for the last week. I think I will have to make this recipe for him.

  3. Apple pie has to be one of my all-time favorites. Yours looks delicious.

  4. I love homemade apple pie. I haven't made one yet this year....I am going to have to get busy, looking at yours has made me hungry for one.

    I have made zucchini parmesan many times before and it is very good.

  5. This sounds amazing! I have to try it with the yogurt - such a wonderful sounding variation!

  6. This really does sound amazing. It's hard to believe that apple season is here.

  8. I'll be over with the vanilla ice cream shortly--looks yummy! Thanks for sharing.
