My grandma used to make this pie for birthdays instead of cake. It's a family favorite of ours now any time of year and for any occasion. A true classic!

Pillsbury Pie Crust

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds Jonathon apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 unbaked pie crusts (see my Old-Fashioned Pie Crust recipe)
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 teaspoon cold water
  • to sugar sprinkle

Steps

  • 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

  • tip 1
    Cut decorative shapes from extra crust dough (see photo). Use egg white to paste to top crust before sugaring top (Step 5).
  • tip 2
    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.
  • tip 3
    Place foil on the bottom of the oven before preheating. If pie boils over, simply remove the foil and recycle.
