Serving: 8 people


  • For the Crust:
    • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 teaspoon sugar
    • 1 cup unsalted butter, chilled and cubed
    • 1/4 to 1/2 cup ice water
  • For the Filling:
    • 6 cups thinly sliced, peeled apples (such as Granny Smith or Honeycrisp)
    • 3/4 cup sugar
    • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • For Assembly:
    • 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)
    • Additional sugar for sprinkling


  1. Prepare the Crust: In a large bowl, mix flour, salt, and sugar. Add butter and use a pastry cutter to blend until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Gradually add ice water, stirring until the dough just comes together. Divide into two halves, form into discs, wrap in plastic, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  2. Make the Filling: In a large bowl, combine apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and lemon juice. Toss to coat evenly.
  3. Assemble the Pie: Roll out one dough disc for the bottom crust and place in a 9-inch pie dish. Add the apple filling. Roll out the second dough disc and place over the filling. Trim, seal, and crimp the edges. Cut slits in the top crust for steam to escape. Brush with egg wash and sprinkle with sugar.
  4. Bake: Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). Bake for 50-60 minutes or until the crust is golden and the filling is bubbling. If edges brown too quickly, cover them with foil.
  5. Cool: Let the pie cool for at least 2 hours before serving.


  • For a richer flavor, mix a variety of apples.
  • The pie can be stored at room temperature for up to 2 days or refrigerated for up to 4 days.
