Classic Apple Pie

Course Dessert
Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 30 minutes
Servings 8 slices


  • 6 small granny smith apples
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 uncooked pie crusts
  • 1 egg, large


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Pull out pie dough & allow to come to room temperature.

  2. Peel, core and dice granny smith apples. 

  3. Into a bowl add all of your dry ingredients (flour, brown sugar, granulated sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon). Whisk to combine.

  4. Add apples into a large bowl & toss in lemon juice. Allow to sit for a few minutes.

  5. Next add your dry ingredients into the apple bowl. Toss to coat apples completely in sugar mixture. Let sit for 5-10 minutes, you will notice a wet coating will begin to form. 

  6. Lightly grease your pie plate. Roll out your dough so that it is about 12 inches in length.

  7. Place 1 pie dough into pie plate. 

  8. Add your apple filling into the pie plate. Drizzle any cinnamon mixture remaining in bowl on top & top with cubed butter. 

  9. Top pie with 2nd pie dough. You can get creative here by using a pastry roller to cut out strips of dough and creating lattice on your pie. You can braid the stripes, fold them into a pattern or just place the dough on top & cut in a few "air vents".

  10. Crack egg into a small bowl. Whisk the egg so that it is completely mixed. Using a pastry brush, "paint" egg wash onto top of pie dough.

  11. Bake pie in oven for 45-50 minutes.

  12. Allow to cool for 15 minutes, serve & enjoy!
