Picture this, family and friends gathering around the table for a delicious home-cooked meal. The aroma of a warm and freshly baked deep-dish apple pie fills the air, making everyone’s taste buds tingle with excitement.

Let me introduce you to my go-to recipe for the best apple pie you’ll ever taste. This recipe is straightforward and requires only a few ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry.

First, let’s start with the flaky and buttery crust. You’ll need 2 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon of sugar, 1 teaspoon of salt, and 1 cup of unsalted butter cut into small pieces. Mix the flour, sugar, and salt in a bowl, then add the butter and mix until a dough forms. Roll out the dough and lay it in a deep-dish baking dish.

Now it’s time to fill up that crust with delicious apples. For the filling, you’ll need 6-7 peeled, cored and sliced apples, 1/2 cup of sugar, 1/4 cup of all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, a pinch of nutmeg, and a tablespoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice. Mix all the ingredients together and pour them into the prepared crust.

Bake the pie at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 45-50 minutes until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbly. Serve hot with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an extra special treat.

But wait, there’s more! If you’re feeling fancy, try this variation of the classic apple pie with orange zest. Start by following the recipe above for the crust and filling, but adding the zest of one orange along with the lemon juice to the apple mixture.

For the topping, mix 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup of brown sugar, and 1/2 cup of unsalted butter. Add 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, and mix until the topping is crumbly. Sprinkle the topping over the pie filling and bake as directed above.

Trust me, once you try these homemade apple pies, you’ll never want to go back to store-bought ones. So gather your loved ones, turn on some music, and get ready for a cozy and delicious evening with the best dessert in town.
