Slab Apple Pie Recipe

This year, we will be having Thanksgiving dinner at our mom and dad’s house . . . between the 6 of us sisters, 4 spouses, and 9 grandkids, we eat a lot of food. We always divide up the food assignments and there is always so much food, but let’s be honest – there can never be enough dessert.

I love this slab pie because it can feed the masses . . . and it couldn’t be any easier to throw together!
If you are feeling super domestic, you can make the pie crust from scratch (using this crust recipe) or the refrigerated pie crusts work perfectly!

  • 1 (14.1 oz) box refrigerated pie crusts , softened as directed on box (I used Pillsbury)
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 8 cups finely diced apples - I used Granny Smith and Gala (about 8 medium apples - peeling them is optional)
  • Glaze:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Remove one of the pie crusts from it's packaging and place on a lightly floured surface. Using a rolling pin , roll pie crust into a rectangle shape, until it's about 8x11" (give or take a little). Gently lift the crust and place onto one half of a 15x10x1 baking pan , folding any extra crust around the edges of the pan under so that they are all even. Repeat with the second pie crust and place on the other half of the baking pan (you will have about a 1" overlap in the middle, but just press it down until it's flush with the rest).
  3. In a large bowl , mix together sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, salt, lemon juice and cornstarch. Fold in the apples and stir until they are all coated.
  4. Spoon the apples into the crust and bake for 30-35 minutes or until the filling is bubbly (just watch that your crust doesn't burn - you could line the edges of the crust with aluminum foil to keep it from burning). Remove from oven and let cool for 30 minutes.
  5. While the pie cools, mix together powdered sugar and milk in a small bowl . Carefully drizzle glaze over the top of the cooled pie and serve.

        Hello, six sisters us one of my all time favorite recipes to follow, I use a great number of them! But, how about 6 boys, my husband is one of them, and my mother-in-law is a gem, 87 years old, but I remember when she cooked like she was cooking for a hay crew. Her recipes were from scratch & her boys never were hungry! Thank goodness for wonderful mama's of big families x 6!
  1. I have to make a dessert in a very large foil pan you know like the ones the turkey should be cooked in for a crowd of 100 how many pie crusts do you think you would need for one of those huge pans and do you think this would get soggy if it sits in the fridge for a couple days before serving
