Apple Pie Recipe

Apple Pie Recipe

I remember coming home sullen one day because we'd lost a softball game. Grandma, in her wisdom, suggested, "Maybe a slice of hot apple pie will make you feel better." One bite…and Grandma was right. —Maggie Greene, Granite Falls, Washington
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 45 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 6 to 7 cups thinly sliced peeled tart apples
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Pastry for double-crust pie (9 inches)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 large egg white
  • Additional sugar


  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the sugars, flour and spices; set aside. In a large bowl, toss apples with lemon juice. Add sugar mixture; toss to coat.
  • 2. Line a 9-in. pie plate with bottom crust; trim pastry even with edge. Fill with apple mixture; dot with butter. Roll out remaining pastry to fit top of pie. Place over filling. Trim, seal and flute edges. Cut slits in pastry.
  • 3. Beat egg white until foamy; brush over pastry. Sprinkle with sugar. Cover edges loosely with foil.
  • 4. Bake at 375° for 25 minutes. Remove foil and bake 20-25 minutes longer or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cool on a wire rack. Yield: 8 servings.

"Delicious pie! I used my favorite go-to homemade pastry dough recipe for the crust. I used 4 granny smith apples and 2 honeycrisp apples . That combination was perfect for us. Just the right amount of tart and sweet. TIP FOR ALL: If you dont want runny pies heres what to do; Mix your fruit with your sugars and lemon juice, let sit for at least 30 minutes, dump the juices that have been rendered out into a small sauce pan, boil it gently for about 5-10 minutes to form a syrup (you can add a teaspoon or so more of sugar at this point to thicken up your syrup if needed) let it cool slightly then add it back to your fruit and sugar, mix well then add your flour. This works every single time with every kind of pie. You will not have any more runny pie filling. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!"

"This is the perfect apple pie! I used my own pie crust recipe though because it is tried and true. Two tips abou the pie filling. 1). I used a combination of Jonagold and Granny Smith apples but increased the amount of apple to 9 cups. This was just right for the stated amount of sugar, flour, and seasoning. Juicy but not runny. 2). baking time needs to be increased substantially. I started with the stated time but the pie was not nearly done. Baked another 30 minutes, checking frequently to be sure it was not over baking. Apples should be nice and "oozy" and very tender. With these two minor modifications, fabulous results!"

"Overall, I like the recipe, Like others, I think either a little extra flower or some cornstarch would be good to help soak up some of the juices. That might vary based on the top of apple.

My crust turned out great! But even with 5 extra minutes, my apples still weren't tender enough. I used Honeycrisp and a few golden delicious. I wish now that I'd either tried another reviewer's tip of covering the whole top with tin foil (so I could have baked it longer), or perhaps cooking the apples in a sauce pan for 5 minutes to give them a head start. P.S. I probably would have chosen Jonathans or Jonagolds if my store had them. :-/"

I found it a bit too sweet, but that may have been because I used Gala apples and they were quite sweet. I'd like to try it with Granny Smith next time."

"I wish there was a higher rating then five stars. This was my. First homemade apple pie and it came out the best I've had in my life and that's not just because I made it haha. There were a few different changes I made and that is 1. I used the homemade pie crust recipe off of crisco container. 2. I skipped the egg white and made a melted butter with sugar and cinnamon to brush on before baking. I know it's not the healthier choice but it added some great flavor to the crust. 3. I substituted the flour for tapioca because my grandmothers secret is it adds a little extra sweetness and flavor. Also I forgot to set the timer and didn't read the cover with foil part so I accidentally skipped out on that so it was uncovered for about 45 minutes. Apples weren't mushy but also not hard . Right in the middle. I used janigolds and Mitzu apples that we picked at the orchard."

"I never write reviews, but this pie was awesome! It was quick and easy to make and had the perfect combination of spices. Also, for those of you who were wondering, you'd need about 5 regular sized apples.The only thing I would change is the sugar, it was a bit too much for my family. I would cut one of the sugars in half, also I did not listen others and increase the flour, but It may have helped the runnyness. It was not runny per say but could have used a bit of extra thickener. Lastly I made this in a regular round metal cake pan with the same cooking time and it worked out great. Thanks for a lovely recipe!

Consistency of cooked mixture was very nice. My supreme critic, Wifey, said she would have used a couple of Macs or Fujis, thought a couple of apple slices were a little hard - though she gobbled it down. First time for me with a two crust pie. Will add a Fuji or two in the next attempt with this wonderful recipe.Which will be soon. With ice cream maybe? Perfect on its own. I used a "1-2-3" crust recipe listed on the net.

"This is the first Applie pie I have ever made, and I recieved many compliments from it.

I did additional flour as the reviews had said.
One family member actually said that it tasted just like Grandma's pies used to.... that is the best compliment anyone could give me! =)
I will definatley make it again."

"I made this recipe for the first time on Thanksgiving this year. I had read through the reviews and I added 3 tbs of flour to the dry mix. After tossing the apples there was still some mixture left in the bowl, which I proceeded to sprinkle evenly over the apples before placing top crust. It came out great. It was my first time making apple pie myself and this was as easy as can be. I will definitely make this one again. I did not find it too sweet at all, but I will try different apples with it as the Granny Smiths I used were really tart. The sweetness is a matter of taste. Thank you for sharing this recipe."

"All in all, it's a good pie. The 5 stars deceived me though. It's way, way, way too runny. I should have read the reviews in addition checking the star rating. So if you're getting ready to bake this pie, do NOT dump the coated apples onto the pie crust under any circumstances (unless you like apple pie soup)."

"Made this tonight and the flavour is amazing. I did add extra flour to thicken as well (will probably add more next time perhaps an extra 2T) Also added a couple of sprinkles of watkins apple pie spice. Kids probably would have eaten it all if I had let them. I may reduce the sugar a tad next time but still enjoyed just the same."

"This pie is great! Everyone loves it, everytime. It isn't too sweet for me. To avoid it being runny, scoop the apples out of the bowl instead of dumping them into the crust. That way, any leftover mixture that didn't coat onto the apples will remain in the bowl. A+ Recipe!"
