This apple pie smells amazing before you even put it in the the oven. Easy Pour Over Apple Pie is simply apples in a crust with a sweet almost caramel sauce you pour over it before popping it in the oven.
This pie is super simple to assemble because the peeled, sliced apples go straight into the pie shell without any spices or coating. The magic in this pie comes from the sauce poured over the apples and lattice crust.
The butter, sugars, cinnamon and vanilla sauce poured over makes that beautiful caramel coating that not only sweetens the apples but makes the crust amazing. And not to mention when you pour that hot sauce all over the pie it immediately begins to cook those apples and smells wonderful!
Now I won’t lie and tell you I always make my pie crusts because I don’t but since this pie is so simple I love to use my Great Grandmother’s pie crust recipe!
