Can you bake a homemade Apple Pie? Yes, you can! You can make the Best Praline Apple Pie with this recipe. The praline sauce baked on top makes this pie crunchy on the outside. It is full of apples and spices.
Homemade Apple Pie is so much tastier than store-bought pie.
Luckily, an apple pie is easy to make. The most challenging part is slicing the apples. After cutting the apples, you mix the apples, flour, sugars, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. If you do not have time to make a pie crust, purchase it and make the filling yourself. This apple pie filling has lots of flavor from extra cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. It is full of flavor, but what makes this apple pie unique is the praline topping. I added the praline sauce to the top of the pie crust for the last ten minutes of baking. The praline sauce bakes into the top of the pie for a sweet, crunchy treat. It is like eating pralines on your apple pie.
My family and I lived on the Northshore of New Orleans for several years, including during Hurricane Katrina. While living in New Orleans, I fell in love with their famous food, including their pralines. I learned while living in the New Orleans area that dessert is better with pralines or praline sauce. I love adding pralines to top off my banana pudding. The creamy pudding with the sweet, crunchy topping is fantastic. If you have not discovered praline sauce, you are missing out. I use it on everything, including pound cake, ice cream, pumpkin bread, pecans, best no-bake cheesecake (posting soon), and this fantastic Praline Apple Pie. I added a praline sauce to my apple pie and baked it into the pie.
Another benefit of baking an apple pie is the sweet aroma coming from the kitchen that fills the house.
2 Corinthians 2:15 "For we are to God the aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing."
According to this verse, Christians are a sweet aroma to God.
Apple Pie Filling is from Betty Crocker “Apple Praline Pie.”
