For the Filling


For the Crust:

  1. In a large bowl, mix the flour and salt together.

  2. Add the cold, cubed butter to the flour mixture. Using a pastry cutter or your hands, work the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

  3. Gradually add ice water, one tablespoon at a time, and mix until the dough comes together. Be careful not to overwork the dough.

  4. Divide the dough into two equal portions, shape them into discs, and wrap each in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before using.

For the Filling:

  1. Peel, core, and slice the apples into thin, even slices.

  2. In a large bowl, combine the apple slices, granulated sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, lemon juice, and cornstarch. Mix well until the apples are evenly coated.

Assembling the Pie:

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

  2. Roll out one disc of chilled dough on a floured surface to fit a 9-inch pie dish. Place the rolled-out dough in the dish.

  3. Spoon the apple filling into the pie crust, packing it gently and mounding it slightly in the center.

  4. Roll out the second disc of dough and place it over the filling. Trim any excess dough hanging over the edges.

  5. Press the edges of the top and bottom crusts together to seal. You can crimp the edges with a fork or create a decorative fluted pattern.

  6. Cut a few slits on the top crust to allow steam to escape during baking.

Baking the Pie:

  1. Place the pie on a baking sheet to catch any drips.

  2. Bake in the preheated oven for 45-55 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling.

  3. If the edges of the crust start to brown too quickly, you can cover them with aluminum foil.

  4. Once baked, remove the pie from the oven and let it cool on a wire rack for at least 2 hours before serving. This allows the filling to set.


  • Apple Selection: Choose a mix of apple varieties for a balanced flavor and texture in your filling. Good options include Granny Smith, Honeycrisp, and Fuji.
  • Crust Perfection: Keep your butter cold and handle the dough as little as possible for a flaky, tender crust.
  • Avoid Soggy Bottoms: To prevent a soggy crust, consider brushing the bottom crust with a beaten egg white before adding the filling.
  • Serve with Ice Cream: A scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream is the perfect complement to warm apple pie.
  • Make-Ahead: You can prepare the pie crust and filling ahead of time, assembling and baking the pie when you're ready to enjoy.
