Expert Tips

  • Taste apples for sweetness before adding granulated sugar and adjust the amount of sugar to your preference.
  • Choose apples that are firm enough to hold their shape. Braeburn, Fuji, or Granny Smith, are all excellent choices.
  • To make this recipe even easier, skip peeling the apples. If you leave the peel on, make sure to still take out the core and seeds.

More About This Recipe

  • Please the crowd and stay sane this holiday season with this five-star Apple Slab Pie recipe. It serves 24 and is simple to put together — thanks to the Pillsbury Pie Crust. Don’t be intimidated by the size of this pie, there’s an easy hack for that, simply stack two crusts on top of each other and then roll them out. Before you know it, your crust will be big enough to fit a sheet pan. And as always, it’s the peeling and the slicing of the apples that takes time, but it’s also a task that can be pleasantly mindless, especially with the right background music. Once the apples are prepped, the filling itself is easy and features all the basic ingredients you would expect: a little sugar, some cinnamon spice, a squirt of lemon, etc., which means you end up with that familiar flavor everyone loves. What’s next is what sets this pie apart: the powdered sugar-milk glaze that gets drizzled on when the pie is still hot out of the oven! This final touch not only makes the pie extra sweet, it also gives it a pretty gloss. So next time you need a guaranteed dessert win, give this pie a try. You can even study Betty’s step-by-step guide to making apple pie, if you want to perfect your technique. And when you’ve got a smaller group to feed, there are plenty more apple pie and tart recipes.
