Apple Pie

This is my absolute favorite apple pie recipe, served with some cold vanilla sauce! Yum!

1 Pie


Pie Crust

  • 2 1/4 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1/4 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups Cold Butter
  • 3 tbsp Cold Water

Apple Pie Filling

  • 7 Apples
  • 1/4 cup Butter
  • 4 tbsp Granulated Sugar
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Ground Ginger

Egg Wash

  • 1 Egg
  • 2 tbsp Milk


  1. In a large bowl, mix together all purpose flour and powdered sugar.
  2. Add cold butter, chopped. Pinch it all together until even.
  3. Add cold water and work into the dough.
  4. Divide the dough into to pieces, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least a half hour.
  5. For the filling, melt the butter in a frying pan and add 7 peeled and diced apples. Add the sugar, cinnamon and ground ginger. Mix together and let it sit on the stove for about 5 minutes. Let cool.
  6. Roll out one half of the dough and place in a pie tin and push the edges a little bit.
  7. Fill the crust with the apple mixture.
  8. Roll out the second half of the dough and cut into 9 strips.
  9. Place five strips over the pie vertically.
  10. Fold up every other strip and place one strip across the pie horizontally. Fold down the strips. Repeat this step until the pie is fully covered.
  11. Press the strips and edges together. Cut any excess dough around the edges.
  12. For the egg wash, whisk together the egg and milk, and brush on top of the crust.
  13. Place in the oven at 350 degree F or 175 degree C for about 45 minutes. Let cool.
