Flaky pie crust filled with delicious apples. This classic Apple Pie recipe is a family favorite!


  • 2 pie crusts (homemade or store-bought)
  • 4-5 medium apples, cored and sliced thin
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 3 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 large egg (for egg wash)
  • 1 Tablespoon water (for egg wash)
  • 1 Teasblespoon coarse sugar, optional, for topping


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Place sliced apples into a large bowl. Add sugars, flour, lemon juice, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Toss well to combine. Set aside for a few minutes.
  3. Make the egg wash in a small bowl by whisking the egg with water. Set aside.
  4. Roll out pie crust dough and place in a pie plate, trim edges if desired. Carefully pour the apple mixture into the uncooked pie shell.
  5. Place dabs of butter around the top of the apples.
  6. Place the second pie crust over the top and trim edges, crimping first to seal them together.
  7. Brush the top of the pie crust with the egg wash and sprinkle with coarse sugar.
  8. Place pie on a baking sheet and bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes. Then reduce heat to 350 degrees and continue to bake for 35-40 minutes more.
  9. Allow pie to cool before slicing.


  • To prevent over baking or burning of crust, wrap edge of crust in foil for second part of baking (or use pie crust shields).
  • I use a standard size pie plate (not deep dish) for this recipe.
  • The best apples for apple pie are firm and tart- like Granny Smith
  • I don't peel my apples, it's an extra step I don't find necessary. You can certainly peel if you prefer.
  • Allow pie to cool before slicing, this will ensure the filling doesn't ooze.
