Easily Make this Granny Smith 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
- Preheat your oven to 425°F.
- 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.
- Add in the ice water, one tablespoon at a time, until the dough comes together into a ball.
- 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.
- In a large bowl, combine the sliced apples, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Toss until the apples are coated in the mixture.
- Pour the apple mixture into the crust, then dot the top with small pieces of butter.
- 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.
- Remove the pie from the oven and let it cool completely before serving.
For an extra special touch, serve this pie a la mode with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. Enjoy!
