Apple Pie


Make a delicious apple pie easily with this recipe! A tasty cinnamon-apple filling is wrapped in a golden brown crust. You can either use our homemade All-Butter Pie Crust or a store-bought one. Though the tempting smell may make it hard to resist, be patient and let the pie cool a bit to get the perfect slice with thickened juices. Whether you bring it to a potluck or serve it during the holidays, this timeless dessert is a hit. Top it with homemade whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. Feel free to try variations like Dutch Apple Pie, Bourbon Pecan Pie, or classic Pumpkin Pie for a change.

What Are the Best Apples for Apple Pie?

To bake the perfect apple pie, choosing the right apples is key! Avoid soft or watery ones like Fuji, as they won’t give your pie the desired texture. Aim for apples that are crisp, not overly sweet, and can withstand the caramelized filling. Granny Smith apples work well due to their firm texture, juiciness, and slight tartness. You can customize your pie by using a mix of apples like Cortland, Golden Delicious, or Honeycrisp for varied textures and flavors.
