Equipment

  • 1 9-inch pie dish
  • 1 Rolling Pin
  • 1 Mixing bowls
  • 1 Pastry cutter or fork
  • 1 Knife and cutting board
  • 1 Measuring cups and spoons
  • 1 Aluminum foil (optional, for covering edges of pie crust)
  • 1 Pastry brush (optional, for egg wash)
  • 1 Oven

Ingredients
  

For the Pie Crust:

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1 cup 2 sticks unsalted butter, cold and cut into small cubes
  • 6-8 tablespoons ice water

For the Apple Filling:

  • 6 cups peeled cored, and thinly sliced apples (such as Granny Smith or Honeycrisp)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter cut into small pieces

Instructions
 

Prepare the Pie Crust:

  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, salt, and granulated sugar.
  • Add the cold, cubed unsalted butter to the flour mixture.
  • Using a pastry cutter or fork, cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs with some pea-sized pieces of butter remaining.
  • Gradually add the ice water, one tablespoon at a time, mixing with a fork or your hands until the dough comes together and holds its shape when pressed.
  • Divide the dough in half and shape each half into a disk. Wrap each disk in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or until firm.

Preheat the Oven:

  • Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).

Prepare the Apple Filling:

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the sliced apples, granulated sugar, brown sugar, all-purpose flour, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, salt, and lemon juice. Toss until the apples are evenly coated with the sugar mixture.

Assemble the Pie:

  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out one disk of pie dough into a circle large enough to fit your pie dish. Transfer the rolled-out dough to the pie dish and gently press it into the bottom and sides.
  • Spoon the prepared apple filling into the pie crust, mounding it slightly in the center. Dot the top of the filling with small pieces of unsalted butter.
  • Roll out the second disk of pie dough into a circle large enough to cover the filling. Carefully place it over the filling, then trim and crimp the edges of the dough to seal the pie.

Bake the Pie:

  • If desired, brush the top crust with a beaten egg for a shiny finish.
  • If the edges of the pie crust are browning too quickly during baking, you can cover them with aluminum foil to prevent burning.
  • Place the pie on a baking sheet to catch any drips, then bake in the preheated oven for 45-55 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbly.
  • Remove the pie from the oven and let it cool on a wire rack before slicing and serving.
