Hey ya’ll, I made the most delicious apple pie last night and I just had to share the recipe with you! This recipe is so easy, even a beginner baker like me was able to pull it off.

60-Minute Apple Pie Recipe by Tasty

First up, you’ll need to gather these ingredients:

  • 2 pre-made pie crusts (take out of the fridge and let sit at room temperature for 15 minutes)
  • 6 cups thinly sliced and peeled apples (we used Granny Smith apples, but any tart apple will do)
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1 large egg, beaten

Now for the instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400F (or 200C)
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the apple slices, sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
  3. Spoon the mixture into one of the pie crusts, and dot with the cubed butter.
  4. Cut the second pie crust into strips and weave over the top of the apple mixture to create a lattice pattern.
  5. Brush the beaten egg over the top of the pie crust strips to give it a golden brown finish.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 40-45 mins, or until the crust is golden brown and the apple mixture is bubbling.
  7. Let the pie cool for 10-15 minutes before serving. Enjoy!

For the filling:

  • 6 cups peeled and sliced tart apples (Gala or Granny Smith)
  • ½ cup white sugar

Now for the instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375F (or 190C)

Add the ice water one tablespoon at a time, mixing until the dough forms a ball. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface and place into a 9-inch pie dish.
  3. For the crumb topping: In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon until it forms large crumbs.
  4. For the filling: In another bowl, mix together the sliced apples, sugar, flour, lemon juice, and cinnamon until the apples are coated.
