Golden Apple Pie Recipe

Golden Apple Pie Recipe

Meet the Cook: Pies are the dessert I like best to prepare. This one's the favorite for family get-togethers, and it has been awarded blue ribbons at a couple of local fairs. My husband's a cattleman. We're the parents of six and grandparents of nine. -Theresa Brazil, Petaluma, California
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + cooling Bake: 40 min. + cooling YIELD:6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • 6 cups sliced peeled Golden Delicious apples
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons apple juice, divided
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon apple pie spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • CRUST:
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup cold butter or margarine
  • 6 to 8 tablespoons ice water

Directions

  • 1. In a large saucepan, combine apples, 3/4 cup apple juice, sugar, cinnamon, apple pie spice and vanilla; bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Combine cornstarch and remaining apple juice; add to saucepan. Return to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook and stir 1 minute more or until thickened. Remove from the heat and cool to room temperature, stirring occasionally.
  • 2. Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine flour and salt; cut into the butter until crumbly. Sprinkle with water, 1 tablespoon at a time; stir with a fork until dough can be formed into a ball. Divided in half. On a lightly floured surface, roll one half to fit a 9-in. pie plate. Place in plate and add filling. Roll remaining pastry to fit top of pie. Place over filling and seal edges; cut vents in the top. If desired, decorate top of pie with pastry scraps cut into small apple shapes. Bake at 400° for 40-45 minutes or until crust is lightly browned and apples are tender. Yield: 6-8 servings.

"Excellent apple mixture. I'm not great at making pastry but the inside of the pie turned out awesome. Will make this again. I used another recipe for the crust but used in ingredients for the pie."

"This crust recipe is very off. The fat in it should be about half that or less. I am experienced and fixed it some, but we had to way overwork the dough to fix it.

the filling was fine."

"Made this for the fourth time today. It was perfect! The only change I made was I sprinkled a cinnamon-sugar blend on top before baking. This is one of my "go to" recipes!"
