Sarah’s Ultimate Apple Pie

Ingredients

  • 6 cups thinly sliced, peeled apples (about 6 medium)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 recipe pastry for a 9-inch double-crust pie
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 large egg white
  • Additional sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, combine the apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, salt, and lemon juice. Toss gently to coat the apples evenly.
  3. Roll out half of the pastry on a lightly floured surface to fit a 9-inch pie plate. Place the pastry in the pie plate and trim the edges. Spoon the apple mixture into the pastry shell and dot with butter.
  4. Roll out the remaining pastry to fit the top of the pie. Place over the filling. Trim, seal and flute the edges. Cut slits in the top crust to allow steam to escape during baking.
  5. Beat the egg white until frothy. Brush over the top crust. Sprinkle with sugar. Cover the edges loosely with foil.
  6. Bake the pie for 25 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 20 to 25 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbly.
  7. Cool the pie on a wire rack before serving with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!

If you want to take your apple pie game to the next level, consider using different varieties of apples for a more complex flavor profile. And don’t forget to top it off with some homemade whipped cream or a drizzle of caramel sauce. Trust me, it will make all the difference.

Of course, no apple pie is complete without a perfectly flaky, buttery crust. While this recipe calls for a traditional double-crust pastry, there are plenty of other pie crust ideas to experiment with. Try a lattice top, a crumble topping, or even a savory cheddar crust for a unique twist on this classic dessert.

In conclusion, there’s nothing quite like a warm slice of apple pie on a chilly fall evening. So, follow this recipe, get creative with your crust, and indulge in the sweet, comforting goodness of a homemade apple pie. Trust me, your taste buds will thank you.
