There’s nothing quite like the smell of a freshly baked apple pie wafting through the house. It’s a classic, comforting dessert that’s beloved by many, and for good reason. Today, I’m excited to share my go-to recipe for homemade apple pie. Trust me, once you taste this perfect balance of sweet and tart flavors, you’ll never reach for a store-bought pie again.

Let’s start with the basics. You’ll need two 9-inch pie crusts, either store-bought or homemade. I prefer to make my own, but either way will work fine. For the filling, you’ll need six cups of thinly sliced, peeled and cored apples. I like to use a mix of Granny Smith and Honeycrisp apples for the perfect balance of tartness and sweetness. You’ll also need one cup of sugar, two tablespoons of all-purpose flour, one teaspoon of ground cinnamon, half a teaspoon of ground nutmeg, and a quarter teaspoon of salt.

To assemble the pie, roll out one of the crusts and place it in a 9-inch pie dish. In a large bowl, mix the sliced apples with the sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Pour the apple mixture into the pie crust, and then roll out the second crust and place it on top. Pinch the edges of the two crusts together to seal them, and then use a sharp knife to cut a few slits into the top crust to allow steam to escape.

Now for the fun part – decorating the top of the pie! You can use extra pie dough to create a lattice pattern, or simply cut out some cute shapes with cookie cutters. Brush the top of the pie crust with a beaten egg to create a shiny, golden finish. Then, pop the pie in the oven and bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for about an hour, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling.

When your pie is done, take it out of the oven and let it cool for at least 30 minutes before cutting into it. I like to serve mine with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, but it’s delicious on its own as well. You’ll love every bite of this homemade apple pie, I promise!
