Picture this – a warm, gooey, comforting traditional deep dish apple pie with a lightly crisp, flaky crust. Is your mouth watering yet? If you’re a lover of all things pie but haven’t yet attempted to make your own, fear not! We’ve got a recipe that will make you a star in the kitchen.

To begin your pie masterpiece, start by preheating your oven to 375°F (190°C). For the crust, you’ll need:

– 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
– 1 tablespoon sugar
– 1 teaspoon salt
– 2 sticks (1 cup) cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
– 1/4 to 1/2 cup ice water

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Gradually add ice water, one tablespoon at a time, tossing with a fork until dough comes together in a ball.

For the filling, you’ll need:

– 8 cups sliced, peeled and cored apples (try using a mix of Granny Smith and Honeycrisp)
– 1 tablespoon lemon juice
– 1/2 cup granulated sugar
– 1/4 cup cornstarch
– 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
– 1/2 teaspoon salt
– 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

In a large bowl, gently toss apples with lemon juice. In a separate bowl, whisk together sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg. Sprinkle mixture over apples and toss to coat.

Now it’s time to assemble your pie! Roll out your dough on a floured surface and transfer to a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate. Add your apple mixture, creating a slight mound in the center.

For the top crust, you can either use a traditional double crust or get creative with lattice or cut-out designs. Brush with an egg wash and sprinkle with granulated sugar.

Bake for 45-50 minutes, until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbling. Let cool for at least 1 hour before slicing.

Our second recipe features a twist on the classic apple pie by adding in some juicy pears. This apple pear pie is a delicious and unexpected flavor combination that will have your taste buds thanking you.

For the crust, you can follow the same directions as above. For the filling, you’ll need:

– 5 cups sliced, peeled and cored Granny Smith apples
– 5 cups sliced, peeled and cored ripe pears
– 1 lemon, zest and juice
– 3/4 cup light brown sugar
– 1/3 cup granulated sugar
– 1/4 cup cornstarch
– 1 teaspoon cinnamon
– 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

In a large bowl, toss apples and pears with lemon juice and zest. In a separate bowl, mix together brown sugar, granulated sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Sprinkle over fruit and toss to coat.

Roll out your crust and transfer to a 9-inch pie dish. Add your fruit mixture and top with a lattice crust. Brush with an egg wash and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.

Bake at 375°F (190°C) for 50-60 minutes, until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Let cool for at least 30 minutes before serving.

As you enjoy your apple pie, cozy up by the fire or share with family and friends – there’s nothing quite as comforting as a warm slice of homemade pie. So gather your ingredients, roll up your sleeves, and get baking!
