Apple Pie Recipe

The key to this recipe is in the crust. It’s flaky and buttery without being too heavy. But the filling is just as delicious, with a perfect balance of sweet and tart.

Ingredients

  • 1 recipe for double-crust pie dough
  • 6 cups thinly sliced apples (about 6 medium-sized apples)
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar (for topping)

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Roll out half the pie dough and fit it into a 9-inch pie dish. Trim the edges and prick the bottom with a fork.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, toss apples with ¾ cup of sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and salt. Pour the apple mixture into the prepared crust and dot with small pieces of butter.
  4. Roll out the remaining pie dough and cut it into strips. Arrange the strips as a lattice on top of the apples. Trim the edges and crimp with a fork or your fingers.
  5. Brush the top with beaten egg and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of sugar.
  6. Bake the pie for 45 to 55 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling.
  7. Let the pie cool on a wire rack for 2 hours before serving.
