A slab apple is just what it sounds like. Layers upon layers of delicious, warm apple pie. An apple pie baked on a large baking sheet and served in squares. And let’s be honest…one layer just isn’t enough.
This simple recipe is one that we always find ourselves making over the course of the holiday season, but it’s perfect for any time of the year really.If you love the taste of apple, this apple pie recipe can’t be beaten!
We always say slab pies are party pies. They can serve a crowd much better than a regular pie can. So instead of make a couple of pies you can use this big baking sheet to make this slab pie.
What is the best type of apples to use for apple pie?
While there is such a thing as “baking apples” we really do feel that you should also use apples that you like to eat, too. If you’re wanting your apple pie to be a bit more tart, consider that when you’re choosing your apples. And honestly, who says you can’t have more than one type of apple in your pie?
Switch things up a bit and see what you think about the taste and flavor. You just might find that having different varieties combined together is the key to making your perfect slab apple pie.We like to mix honey crisp and granny crisp or fuji apples.
Such an easy pie to make in a cookie sheet!
Is this apple pie to be served warm or cold?
We like it warm with a nice scoop of vanilla ice cream on top but you can eat it however you want! (I’ve also been known to eat it cold straight out of the fridge, too!) Just make certain that you store it in the fridge in an airtight container once it’s baked and cooled so that you can enjoy it for the next several days as well!
Don’t miss out on this simple apple dessert. With the abundance of layers and taste, you’re going to be so happy that you know how this delicious recipe to create over and over again.
