What’s better than a warm and delicious apple pie? Not much. And this recipe I’m sharing with y’all today is the bee’s knees. It’s a Honey Roasted Apple Pie that will leave your taste buds wanting more. So, let’s get right into it with the ingredients:
- 1 double-layered homemade or store-bought pie crust
- 6 small Honeycrisp apples
- 1/4 cup of honey, preferably locally sourced
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon allspice
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg, beaten
Start by preheating your oven to 375 degrees F (190 C). Then peel and slice the apples into thin slices. In a large bowl, combine the apples, honey, butter, cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and salt. Mix until the apples are completely coated.
Take your pie crust and lay it out into a pie dish. Spoon the apple mixture into the crust and smooth it out evenly. Place the second pie crust over the apples and crimp the edges to seal the pie. Brush the top of the crust with the beaten egg.
Cut a few slits on the top of the pie crust to let the steam escape while baking. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the apples are tender. Let the pie cool for at least 20 minutes before serving.

Pour the apple mixture into the pie crust and dot with butter. Sprinkle flour over the top. Roll out the second pie crust and drape it over the top of the pie. Trim and crimp the edges of the crust together. Brush the beaten egg over the top of the pie crust.
Cut slits into the top of the pie crust to let steam escape while baking. Place the pie on a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes. Reduce the heat to 375 degrees F (190 C) and continue baking for 30-40 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling.
