If you're anything like me, you carefully prepare a humble dessert option and show up to a family gathering ready to wow the tastebuds off of your friends and family. Once you arrive, you're hit with the fact that there are far more guests than you could have anticipated. You definitely didn't cook enough portions for this big of a crowd!
Thanks to my new favorite dessert, I no longer have to face those worries. This slab apple pie is big enough to satisfy an entire family - and maybe even have enough leftover for seconds! It's easy, fast, and oh so delicious. What more could you want in a dessert?
It allows you more time to spend with your friends and family without the hassle of hovering around a piping hot stove for hours on end. Check out the recipe below to see just how easy it is to make!
1 (12.1 oz.) box of refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box
1 c. white sugar
3 tbsp. all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tbsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp. allspice
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. lemon juice
3 tbsp. cornstarch
8 c. finely diced apples
1 c. powdered sugar
2 tbsp. milk
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Place one of your pie crusts into a rectangle baking sheet and shape so that it goes up on the edges of the pan. Use the other pie crust and cover the other half of the baking sheet. The two pie crusts will overlap in the middle slightly. Chill the crusts in the refrigerator until ready to use.
In a large bowl, add your sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, salt, lemon juice, cornstarch. Stir all ingredients together until combined. Fold in your chopped apples and stir well until all apples are coated in the spice mixture. Pour the apples onto the prepared pie crusts and spread out evenly. Bake for 30 minutes.
In a small bowl, mix together the powdered sugar and milk until it is smooth and glossy. After the apple slab pie is cooked and has cooled slightly, top with the glaze. Cut, serve, and enjoy!
