Classic, old fashioned, easy apple pie recipe from scratch, requiring simple ingredients. It has a buttery flaky pie crust and a homemade apple pie filling.


Pie Filling

  • 3/4 cup Brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup All-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon powder
  • 1/4 tsp Nutmeg powder
  • 1/4 tsp Ginger powder Optional
  • 1 tsp Lemon juice
  • 7 medium Apples Washed, Cored, Peeled, sliced
  • 3 tbsp Butter Unsalted, Cut into small cubes
  • 1 Egg Large, Beaten for egg wash

Pie Crust

  • 2 1/2 cups All-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp Granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon powder
  • 1/4 tsp Nutmeg powder
  • 3/4 cup Butter Unsalted, Cold, Cut into small cubes,
  • 6-9 tbsp Water Ice cold
  • OR USE STORE-BOUGHT PIE CRUST Two, 9 inch, Unbaked

Pie Crust

  • Add flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg in a food processor and pulse to mix everything together. 
  • Add butter in the food processor and pulse a few times until pieces of butter are very small (almost the size of a pea).
  • Add 6 tbsp of very cold water and pulse again. Add additional 1 tbsp water at a time, if necessary, until dough just begins to hold together and is not too sticky. 
  • Transfer the dough to a table and use your hands to form it into a ball. Don't over-mix or else the dough will become tough! You should be able to still see pieces of butter in the dough. That's normal and you need that!
  • Divide the ball into 2 portions and shape each portion into a flat disc. Wrap each disc in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30-40 minutes.

Pie Filling

  • In a mixing bowl, add brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, lemon juice, apples and mix until fully coated. Keep aside.
