Easily Make this Granny Smith Apple Pie:

Apple Pie


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, chilled and cubed
  • 4-5 tablespoons ice water
  • 8 cups Granny Smith apples, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into small pieces


  1. Preheat your oven to 425°F.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour and salt. Use a pastry cutter to cut the chilled butter into the mixture until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Add in the ice water, one tablespoon at a time, until the dough comes together into a ball.
  4. Roll the dough out into a circle, then transfer it to a 9-inch pie dish. Trim off the excess dough, leaving about 1/2 inch overhanging the edge of the dish.
  5. In a large bowl, combine the sliced apples, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Toss until the apples are coated in the mixture.
  6. Pour the apple mixture into the crust, then dot the top with small pieces of butter.
  7. Bake the pie for 15 minutes, then reduce the oven temperature to 375°F and continue baking for an additional 40-50 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling.
  8. Remove the pie from the oven and let it cool completely before serving.
