As we gear up for the holiday season, there’s one dessert that always has a special place on the table – you guessed it, apple pie! And boy, do we have a treat for you. We’ve found not one, but two delicious apple pie recipes that are sure to impress your guests.

First up, we’ve got a layered apple pie with a phyllo crust. Yeah, we know what you’re thinking, “what the heck is phyllo crust?” But trust us, it’s a game changer. Instead of the traditional pie crust, this recipe calls for layers upon layers of delicate phyllo dough, creating an unbelievably light and flaky crust.

To start, you’ll need:
– 8-10 sheets of phyllo dough
– 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
– 4 large Granny Smith apples, peeled and thinly sliced
– 1/2 cup granulated sugar
– 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
– 1 tsp ground cinnamon
– 1/4 tsp ground allspice
– Pinch of salt

Preheat your oven to 375°F. Brush a 9-inch pie dish with some of your melted butter. Layer 2 sheets of phyllo dough in the pie dish and brush with more butter. Continue layering until you’ve used up all of your phyllo dough, making sure to brush each layer with butter before adding the next.

In a large bowl, mix together your sliced apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon, allspice, and salt. Spoon the apple mixture on top of your phyllo crust. Fold any overhanging phyllo over the apples to create a rustic, galette-like appearance.

Pop the pie in the oven and bake for 40-45 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the apples are tender. Let it cool for a few minutes before serving. Trust us, your guests will be asking for seconds.

Next up, we’ve got a classic two-crust apple pie recipe. You can’t go wrong with this one, folks. It’s tried and true, and always a crowd-pleaser.

For the crust, you’ll need:
– 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
– 2 tbsp granulated sugar
– 1 tsp salt
– 1 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
– 1/4-1/2 cup ice water

For the filling, you’ll need:
– 6 large Granny Smith apples, peeled and thinly sliced
– 1/2 cup granulated sugar
– 1/4 cup light brown sugar
– 3 tbsp all-purpose flour
– 1 tsp ground cinnamon
– Pinch of salt
– 1 egg, beaten
– 2 tbsp coarse sugar (optional)

In a large bowl, whisk together your flour, sugar, and salt. Add your cold, cubed butter and use a pastry cutter or your hands to work it into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse sand. Gradually add your ice water, a tablespoon at a time, until the dough comes together. Divide the dough in half, wrap each in plastic wrap, and chill for at least 30 minutes.

Preheat your oven to 375°F. Roll out one of your dough disks on a lightly floured surface to about a 12-inch circle. Transfer it to a 9-inch pie dish. In a separate bowl, mix together your sliced apples, sugars, flour, cinnamon, and salt. Spoon the apple mixture into the pie dish.

Roll out your second dough disk to a 12-inch circle and place it on top of your apples. Trim the edges of the dough and crimp them together with a fork. Brush the beaten egg over the top crust and sprinkle with coarse sugar, if using.
