Granny's Apple Pie


Apple pie is an American classic for sure, and this pie is especially close to our heart.  Our recipe comes from “Granny” Ruth, the grandmother of one of our owners, Scott.  Known for her preserves and fruit pies, this apple pie was one of “Granny” Ruth’s specialties that is still being made today.

Passed down for generations, this pie harkens back to a simpler time when food was fresh, homemade, and created by someone you knew.  And that’s exactly what we strive for with our pies at the shop.  It’s a labor of love, but that’s what we’re all about. With Granny’s Apple Pie, we start by rolling up our sleeves and kneading our traditional flaky crust dough by hand.  Once the dough mixes and reaches the right consistency, we portion it out and press it into pie tins.  And after the crust has been crimped, we start on the filling. 

First, we toss crisp Granny Smith apples into a mixture of sugar, spice, and everything nice.  Then, we pile the apples into a generous peak, covering it with our own scratch-made apple crumble.  After coating the pies, we bake them until tender and juicy to create the perfect blend of sweet and tart.

And one of the best parts of this pie is that it can be enjoyed year round! As one of our daily flavors, you can get this pie any time. And, like the I-40 pie, our popular apple pie is a great dessert to take to an event or give to someone.  Plus, our Granny’s Apple Pie can be enjoyed on its own or paired with a scoop of ice cream if you’re in the mood for pie a la mode. And, although styles of apple pie may vary, some pie lovers holding a double-crusted pie in high regards while others fancy a latticework design, we keep our pie simple like what you might find in a country kitchen.

Apple pie is a feel good pie. 

And, we feel good making pies like this to uphold the traditions passed down to us from our grandmothers, mothers, aunts, and all those great family cooks.  We’re happy to share “Granny” Ruth’s pie with you, as well as our love of homemade food. So, here’s to pies fresh out of the oven and making Grandma proud with Granny’s Apple Pie!
