I’ve got a hankering for some good old-fashioned apple pie. You know the kind–warm, flaky crust with a generous helping of tender, cinnamon-spiced apples. Lucky for me, I found not one but two amazing apple pie recipes to choose from. Have a look at these cakes, don’t they just look divine?

Apple Pie Recipe With Orange Zest

Apple pie with orange zest

For the crust:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup shortening, chilled and cut into small pieces
  • 1/4 cup ice-cold water
  • 1/4 cup ice-cold vodka (yes, you read that right!)

For the filling:

  • 6 cups thinly sliced apples (Granny Smith, Golden Delicious, or Jonathan apples work well)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp orange zest
  • 3 Tbsp unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 egg white, beaten with 1 Tbsp water

To make the crust, combine flour, salt, and sugar in a large bowl. Add butter and shortening, and use a pastry cutter or your fingers to work the fat into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse meal. Pour in water and vodka, and use a fork to mix until the dough comes together. Divide into two discs, wrap tightly in plastic, and chill for at least 30 minutes.

To make the filling, combine apples, sugars, spices, salt, flour, and orange zest in a large bowl. Toss to combine. Preheat the oven to 375F.

Roll out one dough disc to fit a 9-inch pie plate. Transfer it to the plate, and trim the edges. Pour in the apple filling, and dot with butter. Roll out the second dough disc, and cut into strips to weave a lattice top. Brush the egg white wash over the top crust.

Bake for 60-70 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling. Let cool before serving.
