I gotta tell you guys, I just found the best damn apple pie recipe out there. And no, it’s not from my grandma or that fancy bakery down the street. It’s from Taste of Home and it’s a freaking masterpiece.

First things first, let’s talk about the crust. It’s flaky, buttery and just the right amount of crunchy. And don’t even get me started on the filling. Juicy, cinnamon-spiced apples, perfectly sweetened with brown sugar and a touch of lemon juice. It’s basically a party in your mouth.

But enough of my drooling, let’s get to the recipe!

The Best Apple Pie Recipe

apple pie


  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons ice water
  • 6 cups thinly sliced peeled apples (about 6 medium)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon of unsalted butter


  1. In a large bowl, combine flour and salt; cut in butter until crumbly. Gradually add ice water, tossing with a fork until dough holds together when pressed. Divide dough in half. Shape each into a disk; wrap in plastic. Refrigerate 1 hour or overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 375°. On a lightly floured surface, roll one half of dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle; transfer to a 9-in. pie plate. Trim even with rim. In a large bowl, toss apples with lemon juice. Combine brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and salt; add to apples and toss to coat. Pour into crust; dot with butter.
  3. Roll remaining dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle. Place over filling. Trim, seal and flute edge. Cut slits in top. Beat egg white until foamy; brush over crust. Sprinkle with sugar. Cover edge loosely with foil.
  4. Bake 25 minutes. Remove foil; bake until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly, 20-25 minutes longer. Cool on a wire rack.

Great Apple Pie Recipe 3

I couldn’t just share one insanely delicious apple pie recipe, so here’s another one from By Wilma. It’s a little more traditional, but still absolutely scrumptious. And the best part? It’s so easy to make!


  • 1 prepared deep dish pie crust
  • 6 cups thinly sliced, peeled apples (about 6 medium – I like to use Granny Smith apples)
  • 3/4 cup white 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 unsalted butter


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, combine sliced apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and salt. Toss until the apples are evenly coated.
  3. Pour the filling into the prepared pie crust. Dot with butter.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes then lower the temperature to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) and bake for an additional 45 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is thick and bubbly. If the crust starts to brown too quickly, cover the edges with foil for the remaining baking time.

Boom, there you have it. Another insane apple pie recipe that’s easy as pie (*wink wink*). So why not try them both out and let me know which one you prefer? Or better yet, invite me over for a slice of each. I’m always down for some good ol’ fashioned pie-tasting.
