I don’t know about y’all, but when the weather starts to turn a little cooler, all I can think about is some good old-fashioned apple pie. I mean, is there anything more comforting and satisfying than a warm slice of apple pie with a dollop of whipped cream on top? I think not. So, I went on a mission to find the best apple pie recipe out there, and let me tell y’all, I hit the jackpot.

Best Ever Apple Pie

This recipe from 12 Tomatoes is truly the best ever. The crust is flaky and buttery, the filling is perfectly spiced, and it’s so easy to make. Here’s what you’ll need:

Best ever apple pie

Ingredients:

  • 1 double crust pie, homemade or store-bought
  • 6 cups thinly sliced, peeled assorted baking apples (about 6 medium)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 large egg white
  • Additional sugar

First, preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. Roll out one crust on a floured surface and transfer it to a 9-inch pie plate. In a large bowl, combine the sliced apples, sugar, flour, spices, and lemon juice. Pour the mixture into the pie crust and dot with butter. Roll out the second crust and place it on top. Cut slits in the crust to allow steam to escape. Brush the top with the beaten egg white and sprinkle with additional sugar. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbly.
