Perfect Easy Apple Pie Recipe
I’ve been on a serious summer pie kick lately!
Although, to be honest, apple pies are pretty much terrific no matter what time of year it is!
I love a good apple pie at a summer picnic and at Thanksgiving dinner.
Hands down, apple pie has to be my absolute favorite indulgence when it comes to dessert.
But only a good apple pie will do. You know what I’m talking about! I’m not interested in some mediocre recipe. Oh no!
If you’re up for a seriously delicious and classically simple apple pie recipe, look no further.
- 1 box (14.1 ounces) Pillsbury refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box (because a lot of us don’t have time to make a crust from scratch and still want a great tasting crust)
- 6 cups thinly sliced, peeled apples (6 medium) (I prefer Granny Smith apples)
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
Step 1: Heat oven to 425 degree F.
Step 2: Place 1 pie crust in ungreased 9-inch glass pie plate. Press firmly against side and bottom.
Step 3: In large bowl, gently mix filling ingredients; spoon into crust-lined pie plate.
Step 4: Top with second crust.
Step 5: Wrap excess top crust under bottom crust edge, pressing edges together to seal; flute.
Step 6: Cut slits or shapes in several places in top crust.
Step 7: Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until apples are tender and crust is golden brown.
Step 8: Cover edge of crust with 2- to 3-inch-wide strips of foil after first 15 to 20 minutes of baking to prevent excessive browning.
Step 9: Cool on cooling rack at least 2 hours before serving.
Tip: Two cans (21 ounces each) apple pie filling can be substituted for the filling if you’re pressed for time.
