  • 1
    Preheat oven to 450° F.
  • 2
    Place bottom crust in an 8 or 9 pie pan (I prefer glass)
  • 3
    In a small bowl, combine sugar, cinnamon and flour and mix until well blended.
  • 4
    In large bowl, place prepared apples. Add sugar mixture and stir to coat all slices. Heap apple mixture into prepared crust.
  • 5
    Cover with top crust, trim and crimp edges to seal. Mix egg white with tsp of water. Using a pastry brush, brush egg white over top crust and immediately sprinkle with sugar. Slit top to vent.
  • 6
    Place pie in preheated 450° F oven and bake for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350° F and bake an additional 45 minutes, until apples are tender and crust is golden. Remove to cooling rack and cool completely before cutting and serving.

Expert Tips

  • Cut decorative shapes from extra crust dough (see photo). Use egg white to paste to top crust before sugaring top (Step 5).
  • Use only baking apples for apple pie. I like Jonathon, Granny Smith or Macintosh varieties. Eating apples, such as Red Delicious, do not cook down and remain firm after baking.
  • Place foil on the bottom of the oven before preheating. If pie boils over, simply remove the foil and recycle.
