Apple Butter Pie

This Apple Butter Pie is a delicious fall-inspired treat that's perfectly spiced and bursting with apple flavor! A great, easy alternative to pumpkin pie too! You guys. This pie. I can’t.

It’s so good.

When it comes to pumpkin pie, I’m on the fence. Give me pumpkin muffins, pumpkin bread, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin shakes. But when it comes to pie, I’m so iffy. There’s just something about it that I don’t quite like. But don’t take that as me not eating it, because with an astronomical amount of whipped cream, I’ll totally polish off a slice.

But this pie? This pie I can get behind. It’s apple-y, creamy, smooth, and absolutely heavenly, especially topped with a mountain of freshly whipped cream and a light dusting of cinnamon sugar for texture and crunch.

It’s a great alternative to those who don’t necessarily like pumpkin pie but want something hearty and delicious for Thanksgiving or harvest season. It has the same gooey, smooth texture but made with straight-up apple butter, which is such a wonderful seasonal ingredient. Use store-bought or homemade apple butter for an unparalleled flavor.

I hope you enjoy!

This Apple Butter Pie is such a warm, comforting dessert for the harvest and fall season! It's a great alternative to pumpkin pie as well.
Ingredients
  • ½ cup apple butter (store bought or homemade; I recommend Musselman's brand)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 Tbsp flour
  • 2 cups evaporated milk
  • 2 tsp apple pie spice (or substitute ground cinnamon)
  • 1 frozen or refrigerated pie crust
  • Fresh whipped cream
  • Cinnamon sugar, for dusting, optional
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F. Place the pie shell onto a rimmed baking sheet for easy removal from the oven. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the apple butter, egg, sugar, flour, evaporated milk and spices until blended and smooth. Pour into the prepared pie shell.
  3. Bake for approx. 10 minutes, then reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees F and bake for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. The top still may be jiggly; this is okay as the pie will continue to set up as it cools.
  4. Cool the pie completely before garnishing with fresh whipped cream and dusting with cinnamon sugar, if desired. I like my pie cold, so I keep mine in the fridge but it isn't necessary.

This Apple Butter Pie is a delicious fall-inspired treat that's perfectly spiced and bursting with apple flavor! A great, easy alternative to pumpkin pie too! Rich, creamy, and perfectly seasoned, this apple-scented pie is perfect for fall! You guys are going to love it!

Have a super sweet day!

  1. My husband was just asking me to make something with apple butter! I’m sure he’d love this!

  2. I am ALL about apples now that fall is almost here! And what a gorgeous pie! I’ve never thought of using apple butter in a filling, but it’s genius! And, as always, this looks like it came right out of a fancy bakery case 🙂

  3. Ok I think I need this is my life or on my Thanksgiving table because I errrr don’t like pumpkin pie! GASP! I know.

  4. I’m in love! This pie is beautiful! I have never even heard of apple butter before!

      Apple Butter is like a thicker jam, Jessica. It’s SO good and very popular around this time of year in the States!

  5. I’m not a huge pumpkin pie fan myself. This pie looks great! It makes me want to go apple picking!

  6. Girl, this looks phenomenal! Thank you for sharing. I never used to like pumpkin pie, but I found an awesome hybrid a few years ago: half apple, half pumpkin pie. The apple layer is on the bottom and pumpkin on top. It’s so good and now I can enjoy pumpkin pie in a new light. Apple Butter though? So flippin’ brilliant. My boyfriend and I just canned some homemade apple butter. Now, I can make this treat for Thanksgiving! 🙂

  7. I need to make this for my boyfriend right away! He likes apple butter so much he can just eat it straight out of the jar! Put into a pie? Ummm I’m not sure he will be able to control himself around this! Thanks for yet another wonderful recipe!

  8. This is PERFECT for Michael!! He doesn’t like pumpkin pie but he loves apple butter!
