Apple Pie Squares for a Crowd

  • Prep Time: 20
  • Cook Time: 30
  • Total Time: 50 minutes
  • Yield: 1 sheet pan 1x


This makes a big sheet pan of apple pie squares. The recipe is loose, because it can be. Just eyeball this and it will work out.


  • 1 recipe of Dairy Free Pie crust for Slab Pie (recipe below)
  • Apples–10-15 peeled cored and thinly sliced.
  • Sugar–about 1 cup
  • Cinnamon–1-2 teaspoons
  • Vanilla–a few spoonfuls
  • Maybe a few splashes of applejack, calvados or other brandy


  • Juice from 1/2 lemon
  • Powdered sugar


  1. Roll out half the dough and press into and up the edges of a 13 x 18 inch jelly roll pan.
  2. Peel and thinly slice 10-15 apples into the sheet pan. I have a cool peeler-corer-slicer for this task. Add enough apples to fill the pan completely, up to the pan edge.
  3. Sprinkle cinnamon over the apples, about 1-2 teaspoons to taste.
  4. Sprinkle sugar over the apples, about 1 cup.
  5. Sprinkle some vanilla over the apples, 1-2 teaspoons.
  6. Roll out the second half of the crust, very thinly, and place over the apples. Seal the edges the best you can. Cut steam holes in the top.
  7. Put the whole pan in the freezer while oven preheats to 375.
  8. Bake for 30 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the filling bubbles in the center.
  9. Make the glaze by mixing enough powdered sugar into the lemon juice to make a drizzly glaze.
  10. Allow the pie to cool a bit before glazing.


Northern Spy is the worst apple to eat fresh, but the most amazing apple to bake with. If you can find them, this will be heavenly.
