I love this Slab Apple 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 great as well.
This recipe is so easy, and the fresh apples taste amazing with the crispy pie crust and the sweet sauce.
Tastes Best Fresh
Thanksgiving and family meals can be difficult when you are limited on ovens. We recommend eating this warm out of the oven. You could even cook it while you eat.
We wouldn’t recommend making this more than 48 hours in advance. You could prepare it then cook it when it comes time, but this won’t last long in the fridge. The crust won’t cook as well and the apples will get mushy and brown.
This recipe was designed to feed a crowd, but you could easily half it and use a 9×13 inch pan rather than a 10×15 inch pan.
what apples work best?
This recipe is pretty flexible when it comes to apple variety. You could use any type of apple. We recommend using Granny Smith Apples, or Gala Apples. I have also tried this recipe using Pink Lady Apples and it was delicious.
You could also use apple pie filling, but we prefer the taste and texture of fresh apples. For this recipe, you may need a couple cans of apple pie filling. The pie crust might also be a little more soggy if you use apple pie filling, due to the extra sauce.
How to keep your pie crusts from burning
Baking Pie crusts can be difficult. But we have found the secret to keep them from burning. All it is is a little tin foil. Simply place 1 inch wide strips on the crusts of your pies to keep them from burning.
With only a few minutes remaining to bake, you can remove the foil. I would remove it with about 8-10 minutes left to bake.

This year, we will be having Thanksgiving dinner at our mom and dad’s house. Between the 6 of us sisters, 6 spouses, and 16 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.
