Homemade Apple Pie: Easy Recipe

Let’s start with the easy recipe for those who are just getting into baking. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 double pie crust recipe
  • 7 cups thinly sliced, peeled and cored apples (Granny Smith, Honeycrisp, Braeburn, or a mix)
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into small pieces


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the apples, sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Mix well.
  3. Roll out one of the pie crusts and place it in a 9-inch pie dish. Add the apple mixture and place the butter pieces on top.
  4. Roll out the second pie crust and place on top of the apples. Trim and crimp the edges. Cut 4 slits in the top of the pie crust to allow steam to escape.
  5. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown.

And voila! Your easy homemade apple pie is ready to serve. Don’t forget to top it off with some vanilla ice-cream or whipped cream.
