July 4th is on a Thursday this year, and what better way to celebrate our nation’s independence than with a yummy apple pie? We have compiled some delicious recipes for you to try. And don’t worry, if you don’t have time to bake your own pie, we have you covered in our bakery.

Party in the USA Apple Pie

There’s nothing quite as patriotic as making and serving apple pie on the Fourth of July. Check out this tasty one that’s just as much fun to make as it is to eat.

You will need:

  • 9 apples peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp. flour
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ⅛ tsp. nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp. lemon juice
  • Pads of butter
  • 1-1/2 tbsp. cornstarch
  • Small amount of sugar and milk


  1. Combine sliced apples with lemon juice in a large bowl. Add other ingredients and toss.
  2. Put apples in a colander to drain the cinnamon/sugar mixture. Keep a half cup of the juice mixture, then spoon the apple mixture into a pie crust-lined pan. Add the cornstarch on top.
  3. Add the cinnamon sugar mixture and two tbsp. cubed butter.
  4. Boil the mixture for eight minutes in microwave, reducing to a third of a cup. Drizzle the mixture on the apples.
  5. Place some pads of butter on the filling, then put the top crust on.
  6. Cut small slits in the crust to release steam.
  7. Spoon some milk on the crust, followed by a sprinkle of sugar.
  8. Bake at 425 degrees for 10 minutes; reduce to 350 degrees for 45 to 55 minutes.

  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • 6 butter
