Have you tried a German Apple Pie? This is an apple pie like no other you’ve tasted.

With little more than fresh apples, cream, sugar, and spices this pie is loaded with so much flavor you’ll hardly believe how easy it is to make.

This apple pie has the distinction of being not only the most memorable apple pie I have eaten but also being the easiest apple pie I have ever made.

I had never made an apple pie with cream before this one and I was happy to find that the cream made the pie not only richer, but smooth as well.

I typically serve this pie at room temperature, completely by itself.It really does not require whipped cream or ice cream, although it is delicious with both as well.

EASY German Apple Pie Recipe

The German apple pie will hold well in the refrigerator for several days.

I’ve been making this pie for a few years now and every time we make it, it receives glowing reviews.

If you haven’t tried a German Apple Pie, I highly recommend putting this one on your list for the holidays.

With little more than a pie crust, apples, cinnamon sugar spices, and a bit of cream, you can make an unforgettable German Apple Pie!

Kitchen Tips: I use this apple slicer and this pie plate to make this recipe.

German Apple Pie Recipe

  1. Press the pie crust into the bottom of a deep 9″ pie plate. Crimp the edges (if you are feeling fancy) or simply smooth the edges until they are relatively smooth.
  2. Whisk together the dry ingredients and sprinkle over the apples in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Stir to coat all the pieces and then place the apples into the pie crust. Pour the cream over the apples and bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes.
  4. Reduce the heat to 350 degrees and bake for an additional 55-60 minutes. Cool completely before serving.

Awesome Apple Desserts

Warm slices of baked apples covered with cinnamon brown sugar streusel topping are all that’s required to make an old-fashioned apple crisp. This crisp recipe is not at all soupy, with soft apples covered with just enough crunchy topping to mdake it perfect.

Crisp apples are caramelized and then layered in between a buttery brown sugar crust and a strudel topping before being baked into these chewy sweet Apple Pie Bars with Bourbon Caramel Sauce.

For a terrific dessert that will feed a crowd, try an Apple Slab Pie too.

Tart cranberries and apples are mixed with brown sugar and spices to fill this flaky buttery crust and make this Cranberry Apple Tart.

Piping hot, tender Baked Apples, filled with dried fruit and soft pecans, baked with brown sugar and spices; this is an awesome dessert that you can make in the slow-cooker.

This lightly sweetened and spiced Apple Cake is filled with chunks of apple, then drizzled with warm caramel sauce just before serving.
