An Easy Apple Delight: The Delicious Slab Pie

Yummy Apple Slab Pie

Calling all apple lovers! This recipe is your go-to for a simple yet incredibly satisfying dessert. Introducing the Yummy Apple Slab Pie – a free-form delight bursting with juicy apples, warm spices, and a sweet glaze, all encased in a flaky crust. It's perfect for those days when you crave homemade apple pie but don't have the time or energy for a fussy double crust.


  • For the Flaky Crust:
    • 1 box (two crusts) refrigerated pie crusts (such as Pillsbury)
  • For the Spiced Apple Filling:
    • 1 cup granulated sugar
    • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
    • 9 cups thinly sliced, peeled apples (about 9 medium apples)
  • For the Simple Glaze (Optional):
    • 1 cup powdered sugar
    • 2 tablespoons milk


  • Preheat for Perfection: Get your oven nice and hot by preheating it to 450 degrees Fahrenheit (230 degrees Celsius).
  • Preparing the Crust: Take the refrigerated pie crusts out of the packaging and let them soften at room temperature according to the package instructions. This ensures the dough is pliable and easy to roll out.

Once softened, unroll both pie crusts and place them on a lightly floured surface. Stack the crusts on top of each other and roll them out into a large rectangle, approximately 17x12 inches.

Carefully transfer the rolled-out dough to a 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Gently press the dough into the corners and sides of the pan, ensuring a good fit. Fold any excess dough under itself at the edges to create a clean border. Crimp the edges decoratively using your fingers or a fork.

  • Spicing Up the Apples: In a large bowl, combine the granulated sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and lemon juice. This dry mixture will become the flavorful coating for your delicious apples.

Add the peeled and thinly sliced apples to the bowl with the dry ingredients. Toss everything together gently until the apples are evenly coated with the spiced sugar mixture.

  • Filling the Canvas: Pour the apple filling into the prepared pie crust in the baking pan. Make sure the apples are evenly distributed.
  • Baking to Golden Bliss: Place the apple-filled pie crust in the preheated oven and bake for 33 to 38 minutes. You'll know it's done when the crust is a beautiful golden brown and the apple filling is bubbling merrily.
  • A Cooling Interlude: Once baked, remove the pie from the oven and let it cool on a wire rack for 45 minutes. This allows the filling to set and prevents a soggy crust.
  • A Touch of Sweet Glaze (Optional): While the pie cools, you can prepare a simple glaze to add an extra touch of sweetness and shine. In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar and milk until you have a smooth and pourable consistency.

Once the pie is cool, drizzle the glaze generously over the top of the apples. Let the glaze set for about 30 minutes before slicing and serving.

  • Slice and Savor! Cut the cooled pie into squares and enjoy every bite of this delightful Apple Slab Pie!


  • For a richer flavor, use brown sugar instead of granulated sugar in the filling.
  • If you don't have any nutmeg, you can simply omit it. The cinnamon will still provide plenty of warm spice flavor.
  • You can add chopped nuts like pecans or walnuts to the apple filling for a delicious textural contrast.
  • Leftover pie can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
