I like this recipe because the lemon juice makes the taste remind me of sherbet and I love sherbet!It was also a hit with the family and I had to share it here.

Cook Time

Prep time: 25 min
Cook time: 40 min
Ready in: 1 hour 5 min
Yields: Serves 8


  • 6 organic Fuji apples, Peeled, cored and cut into small pieces
  • 2 Tablepoons All purpose organic Flour
  • 3/4 cup organic sugar
  • the juice of one lemon, medium sized
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract, or almond extract
  • 2 deep dish pie crust, thawed
  • 2 teaspoon brown sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. You can have the kids help peel and core the apples, if they are old enough to understand and follow directions. Always supervise their first attempts.
  2. Help the kids measure out the appropriate amounts. Mix the dry (sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg) ingredients in one bowl. Mix wet ingredients (lemon juice, vanilla extract) in another bowl.
  3. Add the Apples to a frying pan and cook on med low for a few minutes, then pour the wet ingredients evenly over the apples, then the dry ingredients. Mix everything and keep mixing it all over a med low temperature until the apples get evenly coated with the rest of the ingredients.
  4. Put the mix into the first pie crust.
  5. Take the second pie crust out of the foil, gently, and flatten it out onto a cutting board. Cut out long strips and place them on top of the pie in a lattice formation or whatever design you like. In this hub's picture, I let my son and step-daughter make happy faces with the crust :)
  6. Sprinkle the brown sugar on top.
  7. Bake at 400 for 20 minutes then bake at 350 for 20 more minutes.
  8. Let the pie cool for about 10 min. Serve with vanilla ice cream!! Yummy!

      Thanks mentor! I can't wait to plant an apple tree when we get a house! Hopefully, after the summer:) I will hate waiting too, and today I just learned that you must wait 8 years for an avocado tree to bear fruit from the time of planting. Anything good is worth the wait? That saying never helps me, but... good thing I have a great produce market close by!

      Thank you so much for you very nice comment. Bravo to you!

      This might be my favorite dessert. We just planted some apple trees; now we have to wait three years for the first crop. I hate waiting. :)

      I just read your profile in-depth...I admit I skimmed it the first time...and you are a very interesting person. Look at the things you have done and your interests, and you are so young. Bravo to you my friend....Bravo!
