Cafe #18: Apple Pie

Ring, ring! The Diary has another new recipe! Hello everyone, Junne here with a new recipe. The reason why I decided to make this recipe is because there was a Verzus battle yesterday with Gladys Knight and Patti LaBelle and I decided the best food to eat while watching this would be soul food. So not only did I order some Popeyes, but I also decided to make Apple Pie. Not only was this my first time making Apple Pie, but this is also my first time making pie. I kinda wanted it to taste similar to the ones from Popeyes but it didn't turn out to be like that. I was also working so hard on making sure I did not mess up and went by the schedule, that I cut myself and chipped 2 nails while making this....mhm. Therefore in today's recipe, we are going to be making Apple Pie! Let's get started. 

Serving Size: Since I used an 9 inch Pie Pan and an average pie serves about 8 slices, I wanna say maybe 4-8 people. As always, if you want to cook for more people, double the recipe and use more than one Pie Pan. 

BY THE WAY, use caution when cutting Apples because if you're not careful you could cut yourself. If you're too scared, have someone to help you or buy a Professional Apple Peeler. I'll list it below. (Heck, I was thinking about buying one of these. lol)

Cooking Time: Maybe about 35-40 minutes. 


1 Box of 2 Pillsbury Pie Crusts

5 Apples (I used 3 Fuji Apples because they're apparently they're the sweetest Apples and I also used 2 Red Delicious because they're my fav with some Caramel Dip lol)

2 Cans of Carnation Milk

1 Cup of Regular Milk

1/2 Flour

2/3 Brown Sugar

1/2 Regular Sugar 

4 Cups of Water

Optional: Melted Butter or Ghee 


2 Tablespoons of Vanilla Flavor

Apple Pie Spice

Ground Nutmeg

Ground Cinnamon

Vanilla Cinnamon

Cinnamon Sugar 



1 9 Inch Pie Pan (I used a Stainless Steel) 

2 8 Quart Stock Pot 

1 Large Pot 

1 Knife 

1 Apple Peeler (As I said above, use caution or buy a Professional one online)

1 Large Spoon

1 Small Bowl 

1 Measuring Cup

Optional: 1 Rubber Basting Brush 


1) Peel your Apples and then cut them into slices. 

2) Boil 4 Cups of Water into the Pot and sprinkle a tiny bit of salt in it. Once it starts boling, place the Sliced Apples into the Pot and let it boil for 5 minutes. 

3) Take the Apples out and place them into the Large Bowl and let them dry for 5 minutes. 

4) While they are drying, use the second 8 Quart Stock Pot and pour the 2 Cans of Carnation Milk and 1 Cup of Regular Milk into the Pot and let it boil. Stir it occasionally. 

5) After the Apples finish cooling, pour the Flour, Brown Sugar, and Regular Sugar on them as well as the Spices and stir it all together. Place your Apple Batter into the pot with the boiling Milk. Let it boil for 10 minutes and stir occasionally. 

6) Optional: You can pour another 2/3 Cup of Brown Sugar into the pot. 

7) Sprinkle some Apple Pie Spice and Vanilla Cinnamon into the pot. 

8) After the 10 minutes is up, take the Apple Batter off the pot and follow the instructions on the Pillsbury Pie Crust box. Pour the Apple Batter into the Pie Crust Pan and place the Pie Crust over the Batter and Pie Crust wrapping the crust as according to the box. If it's kinda hard for you, you can follow the instructions on this website: Optional: Use the Melted Butter or Ghee with the Rubber Bashing Brush and rub it around the top of the Pie before you put it into the oven. 

9) Let it bake for 27-30 minutes. Optional: After you take it out the oven, sprinkle some Vanilla Cinnamon and Cinnamon Sugar on top. 

10) Enjoy!
