Missouri Apple Pie

I discovered this recipe in rural Missouri, it is without question the best apple pie recipe I have ever tried and currently use.  This isn’t my Moms recipe, but growing up in the heartland I have had a pie or two.  The most important thing in a pie is the crust.  My Mom taught me at a young age how to spot a store bought crust, and then how to avoid being that person at the harvest festival with the alleged homemade pie or the poor sap that eats one. 

If you are using this recipe, make the crust.  I promise it will make the pie. 



2/3 Cup Vegetable Oil

1/3 Cup Milk

2 Cups Flour (Gluten Free Floor works well too)

Salt and Sugar to taste

Method: Drying into bowl. Mix liquid then pour into dry.


Pie Filling:

6 Cups Apples, peeled and cut

1 Cup Sugar

1 Tablespoon Cinnamon

Nutmeg, cloved (just a little)

2 Marks of Butter (real butter is key)


– Mix everything but butter and pour into shell.  Cut butter and spread onto filling, then put on top.

– Sprinkle sugar and cinnamon on top.  Cook at 400 degrees for 50 minutes. 

– Put little bit of butter on top and cook for five more minutes.

Yield: One delicious apple pie.
