There's something nostalgic about the smell of homemade apple pie in the fall. The aroma of cinnamon and sugar, freshly-sliced apples, and buttery pastry crust filling up your home will give you all the warm fuzzies. This Old-Fashioned Apple Pie is made from scratch using simple ingredients just like your grandma would have used. No frills here; just good, old-fashioned baking that will be love at first bite.
Seasonal tip:With apple-picking season at its peak, a homemade pie is the perfect way to use up all those apples after a few hours at the orchard. While the recipe calls for Granny Smith, you can use any baking apples of your liking, such as Jonathan, Honeycrisp, or Braeburn.
Pie Dough 2½ cups flour 1 teaspoon salt 1½ sticks butter, cold & cut into cubes 4-8 tablespoons ice water
Filling 2½ lbs. Granny Smith apples, cored & sliced ¾ cup sugar 2 tablespoons flour ½ teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon cinnamon ¼ teaspoon nutmeg ½ lemon 1 egg, beaten 1 tablespoon sugar Vanilla ice cream
Preheat the oven to 375°F/200°C.
In a medium-sized bowl, add the flour and salt. Mix with fork until combined.
Add in cubed butter and break up into flour with a fork. The mixture will still have lumps about the size of small peas.
Gradually add in ice water and continue to mix until the dough starts to come together. You may not need all of the water, but if the dough is too dry, then add more. The dough should not be very tacky or sticky.
Work the dough together with your hands and turn out onto a surface. Work into a ball and cover with cling wrap. Refrigerate.
In a bowl, add the sliced apples, sugar, flour, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and lemon. Mix until combined and all apples are coated. Refrigerate.
On a floured surface, cut the pie dough in half and roll out both halves until round and about 1/8-inch thick.
Roll the dough around the rolling pin and unroll onto a pie dish making sure the dough reaches all edges. Trim extra if necessary.
Pour in apple filling mixture and pat down.
Roll the other half of the dough on top. Trim the extra dough from the edges and pinch the edges to create a crimp. Make sure edges are sealed together.
Brush the pie with the beaten egg and sprinkle with the sugar. Cut four slits in the top of the pie to create a vent.
Bake pie for 50-60 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and no grayish or undercooked pastry remains.
Allow to cool completely before slicing. Top with ice cream and enjoy!
