Apple Slab Pie is a slam dunk of a dessert! It gets its unique name for its shape: instead of the typical round pie shape, Apple Slab Pie lays out its buttery, flaky crust and sweet, cinnamon-infused fruit filling as... well, a slab. This makes the pie look distinct, delectable, and definitely worth digging into! It's perfect for sharing and for impressing everyone at the party! Don't forget the ice cream!


• 8 apples, plus more as needed—Granny Smith preferred • 3/4 cup sugar • 3 tablespoons cornstarch • 2 teaspoons cinnamon • salt, to taste • orange zest, to taste • 4 (8-inch) refrigerated pie crusts • vanilla ice cream, optional, to taste, for serving


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Step 2

Peel, core, and chop the apples into 1/2-inch chunks.

Step 3

In a bowl, mix the chopped apples, sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, salt, and orange zest.

Step 4

On parchment paper, stack 2 of the pie crusts on top of each other.

Step 5

Roll the pie crusts into a 17x12-inch rectangle.

Step 6

Cut the dough rectangle into 3/4-inch strips diagonally.

Step 7

Roll out the remaining 2 pie crusts.

Step 8

Place the crusts on a 15x10-inch baking sheet.

Step 9

Spread the apple mixture onto the pie crust in the baking dish.

Step 10

Using the dough strips, form a lattice top with the pie crust strips.

Step 11

Tuck the crust inward around the edges.

Step 12

Bake until the crust is golden brown and cooked through, about 35-40 minutes.

Step 13

Serve warm with ice cream.
