Meatless Monday Memorial Day Recipe

Memorial Day Recipe


As we remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Please join me in prayer as we ask our Lord to hold our service men and women in His strong arms. To cover them with His sheltering grace and presence as they stand in the gap for our protection.


May all the members of our armed forces be filled with courage to face each day and may they trust in the Lord’s mighty power to accomplish each task. Let our military brothers and sisters and their loved ones feel our love and support. Amen



Today’s meatless Monday Recipes is as sweet as pie, apple pie and easy as pie too!

What You Need

Pastry for 2 crusts (I use the premade pie crusts from the market)

8 Cups (about 3 lbs) baking apples (peeled, cored and sliced Granny Smith, Jonathan, Honeycrisp or your favorite baking apple)

2 Tbsp lemon juice

3/4 Cup white sugar

1/4 Cup brown sugar

1/4 Cup flour

1 tsp Cinnamon

1/4 tsp Nutmeg

2 Tbsp Butter

1 Egg

1 Tbsp milk

Basting Brush

Large bowl

Small bowl

9 Inch pie pan

Before You Start: Preheat oven to 425° and prepare your apples, place bottom pie crust into pie pan

Lets Make It! In a bowl mix sliced apples with lemon juice coat well. In a small bowl combine sugars, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg, add to the apples and  mix well to coat. Pour coated apples into the prepared crust lined pie pan and add butter in little bits evenly all over the apples. Place second crust on top of pie filling, cut slits in top of crust to vent. Seal the edges of the crust with a fork or with your thumbs. In the small bowl, beat the egg and milk with a fork and then using your basting brush, brush mixture over top crust. Bake at 425 ° for 15 minutes. Then 350 °and bake for 40-45 minutes more or until crust is golden and filling is bubbly.

Serves 6-8

Katies Tid Bits* If the edges start to get to dark just add strips of foil to cover them.

  8. Thanks for a sweet post on Memorial Day…..I’m wondering why it just popped into my inbox this morning! Oh well, I’m always happy to see your posts, whenever they arrive! Love the pie recipe. Very similar to mine – I use Ree Drummond’s pie crust recipe, and it turns out fabulous. :) Hugs!

    Your pie looks yummy. Nothing is better then having warm apple pie on such a holiday with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream.
    Sometimes when I’m short on time, I go the quick and easy way out by using this recipe.
