Every year we pay a visit to an apple orchard in Indiana and pick apples to bring home and use to create the most amazing apple pie. But this year, with everything that’s going on with David’s health, traveling far away from home to pick apples isn’t an option.
So instead, we did the next best thing. We headed to my favorite grocery store, Mariano’s, to pick fresh apples that ended up being perfect in our pie. Mariano’s actually has a huge assortment of apples to choose from, and finding the right ones to use for the pie was easy. I carefully selected the apples I needed for the recipe along with several more items on my grocery list. Then I looked through my purse for my Mariano’s rewards card and headed for the checkout lane.
I always love shopping at Mariano’s because it’s more than just a grocery store. It’s an experience, and I can’t think of a better place to snag fresh apples (outside of an orchard) than Mariano’s.
Double Pie Crust
With any pie, you need to have a great crust, and the recipe I’m sharing for a double pie crust (since you need a top & bottom crust for an apple pie) is delicious! This crust has just the right balance of crunch around the edges, softness on the bottom, and sweetness, since we’re using it for an apple pie.
This is my go-to crust.
Best Ever Apple Pie
I won’t make you wait any longer.
Perfect for the Holidays or Any Day
This apple pie pairs well with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, and it would be perfect to enjoy for Thanksgiving or any old day of the week.

More on Mariano’s
As I eluded to in my post, Mariano’s is pretty awesome. They’re so awesome that they actually had an Opera Flash Mob surprise their customers as they shopped. You can see their reaction in the video below:
