Tip One: Use my Best Ever Pie Crust recipe for an ultra flaky, beautiful, all-butter crust that everyone will rave about.
Tip Two: Make the pie ahead of time! Assemble the pie fully, double wrap in plastic, and then freeze for up to 1 month. Let the pie partially thaw at room temperature for about 1 hour, then bake as directed by the recipe, adding about 10 minutes to the baking time.

Tip Three: Be sure to use FRESH spices in the filling for the picked punch of flavor. Also, take a bite of your apples first. If they’re super sweet on their own, you may want to scale back the sugar in the filling slightly. If they’re really tart, you may want to increase the sugar slightly.
My Favorite Tools for this Challenge
The Handle the Heat community is filled with enthusiastic home bakers just like you! In my humble opinion, people who like to bake are the BEST kind of people. Creative, thoughtful, and extra sweet. Every month hundreds of people in the HTH community join in our monthly baking challenges… hopefully you will too!
I’m so happy you’re here!
