  • 1
    Heat oven to 425ºF. Prepare Double-Crust Pastry.
  • 2
    Mix sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in large bowl. Stir in apples. Turn into pastry-lined pie plate. Dot with butter. Trim overhanging edge of pastry 1/2 inch from rim of plate.
  • 3
    Roll other round of pastry. Fold into fourths and cut slits so steam can escape. Unfold top pastry over filling; trim overhanging edge 1 inch from rim of plate. Fold and roll top edge under lower edge, pressing on rim to seal; flute as desired. Cover edge with 3-inch strip of aluminum foil to prevent excessive browning. Remove foil during last 15 minutes of baking.
  • 4
    Bake 40 to 50 minutes or until crust is brown and juice begins to bubble through slits in crust. Serve warm if desired.

Expert Tips

  • Jump-start your pie baking by using Betty Crocker® pie crust mix. Just add water and stir; the dough is ready in 5 minutes.
  • Start with three 20-ounce cans of sliced apples, drained, instead of using fresh apples, and you’ll shave about half of the prep time off this recipe.
  • For a pretty glazed top crust, brush this—and any other double crust pie—with milk or cream and sprinkle with sugar before baking.

More About This Recipe
  • There really isn’t a recipe more all-American than the quintessential apple pie. The perfectly baked apple pie has a tender, flaky crust filled with juicy fresh apples. There are several different ways to make a classic apple pie into your own version. The two-crust classic features a homemade pastry dough that we swear by, but there is also something to be said for a streusel topping , a lattice crust , or a boozy twist in the apple pie filling. No matter your pie crust preference, your choice of apples for the filling is equally as important. We recommend always choosing locally grown apples to ensure freshness. With a large variety of apple types to choose from, we have found that Braeburn, Crispin, Granny Smith and Golden Delicious are some of the best for apple pie.
