My dad loves apple pie and always says that no one has ever come close to his mom’s pie…until now!

Recipe Ingredients

  • 7 tart apples, peeled and cored
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon, or to taste
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • salt to taste
  • 2 recipes unbaked pie shells
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. 2 Cut the apples into 1/4 inch slices.
  3. 3 In a mixing bowl, combine sugar, cinnamon, flour, nutmeg (or apple pie spice), and salt; mix thoroughly. Pour the spice mix over the apples and stir until the apples are coated.
  4. 4 Line one crust in a 9 inch deep dish pie pan. Place the apples in the pie crust. Dot the apple filling evenly with butter. Fit the top crust over the apples. Press the crust down gently and cut 3 or 4 slits in the top crust to allow steam to escape while the pie bakes
  5. 5 Bake in the preheated oven 50 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown. Check the pie after the first 30 minutes of cooking: if the crust is already browned reduce the heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) to allow the apples to cook without the crust burning.

  1. This recipe was great after I made a couple adjustments. I added 4 tablespoons of flour to avoid a runny pie.I saw someone say their crust was soggy on the bottom. I brush the bottom of the crust with egg white before adding the filling. I also used 3/4 cup brown sugar and 1/4 cup - Read more ...
  2. Taste is great - but this was really really runny. Update I made this with granny smith apples and FIVE tablespoons of flour worked a lot better.
  3. Yummy!Tart apples are the only ones that should be in a pie. I used granny smiths and the sweetness/tartness was perfect. Mine was a little runny and was the last time I made this also. Next time I'll add a bit more flour. Flavor is excellent though. Use the baker's secret pie crust from this - Read more ...

  5. This apple pie always gets rave reviews - I love to try new recipies on your website and this recipe is one I keep coming back to! You can always switch it up a little by adding more cinnamon and sometimes depending on what type of apples I am using - I cut back on - Read more ...
  6. Loved this recipe. I used granny smith apples and it had a great taste. My bottom crust was soggy but to avoid this you can dust the bottom crust with flour before putting in the filling. Will make again.
  7. OK recipe after tweeking. This was my first time baking a pie and I wanted to surprise my hubby with his favorite. I followed this recipe to the "T" but I used a store-bought crust. I surpised him alright...with runny filling and under cooked apples! What a sloppy mess! I was disappointed and embarassed because - Read more ...
  8. A little runny. The next time I made it I substituted corn starch in place of flour and also cut down on amount of sugar used 3/4 cup instead of 1 cup.
