Apple pie is a staple dessert in America, and there’s nothing like the satisfaction of making it from scratch at home. In this recipe, I’ll be sharing with you my go-to recipe for classic apple pie, adapted from King Arthur Flour’s Bakealong recipe. So roll up your sleeves and let’s get baking!

Start off by preheating your oven to 375°F, and then gather your ingredients for the crust. You’ll need 2 1/2 cups of King Arthur Flour all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon of salt, 2 teaspoons of granulated sugar, 1 cup of unsalted butter (cut into cubes), and 1/4 to 1/3 cup of ice-cold water.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, and sugar. Add the butter and use a pastry cutter or your fingertips to blend the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Slowly add the ice-cold water, a tablespoon at a time, until the dough comes together in a ball.

Divide the dough into two pieces and flatten them into disks. Wrap each disk in plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

While the dough is chilling, prepare your apples. You’ll need about 8 cups of peeled, cored, and sliced apples (about 8 – 10 medium apples). I like to use a mixture of Granny Smith, Jonathan, and Honeycrisp apples for the best flavor and texture.

In a small bowl, mix together 3/4 cup of granulated sugar, 1 tablespoon of King Arthur Flour all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon of ground ginger, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Toss the sliced apples in the sugar mixture until well coated.

Roll out one of the chilled pie crusts on a lightly floured surface into a 12-inch circle. Transfer the crust to a 9-inch pie dish and trim the edges. Pour the apple filling into the crust and dot with 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter.

Roll out the second chilled pie crust and place it on top of the apple filling. Trim the edges and crimp the edges to seal. Cut a few slits in the top of the crust to allow steam to escape.

Bake the pie for 50 – 60 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbly. Allow the pie to cool on a wire rack for at least 2 hours before serving.

This classic apple pie is sure to impress your family and friends, and is perfect for any occasion. Serve it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream for the ultimate dessert experience. Happy baking!
