A Bounty of Orchard Freshness
The heart of this slab pie is the apples. We use a variety of sweet and tart apples to create a harmonious blend of flavors and textures. Each slice is like a bite of autumn, with tender apples infused with cinnamon and nutmeg, all enveloped in a buttery, flaky crust. It’s a celebration of the season’s best fruit.
Feeding a Crowd Made Easy
No need to fuss with individual pies when you can whip up this crowd-pleasing slab pie. It’s perfect for family gatherings, potlucks, or holiday feasts. The large rectangular shape allows you to cut generous slices, making it a practical choice for sharing. Plus, it’s easier to assemble than multiple traditional pies.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I make this pie in advance?
Yes, you can prepare the pie up to a day in advance. Cover it with plastic wrap and store it in the refrigerator until you’re ready to bake. Be sure to add a few extra minutes to the baking time if you’re starting with a chilled pie.
Can I use store-bought pie crust?
Absolutely! While homemade crust is a delightful touch, store-bought pie crusts work well and save you time. Just follow the instructions on the packaging for rolling out and assembling your slab pie.
