One of the first times I really remember making and eating this pie was my 14th birthday. I wanted an apple pie instead of a birthday cake… So, my mom whipped up this recipe and when the big day came, all of our friends begged for the recipe!

Seriously, when I say this is the best apple pie you’ll ever try, I mean it. There’s also just something so comforting and delicious about baking your very own.

And it’s really easy, too! Make the pie dough, add the filling, bake, serve. It’s that easy!

Divide the dough in half and wrap each half in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.

Take the dough from the fridge and roll both discs out onto separate lightly floured pieces of parchment. Set one aside.

Carefully place one dough into the pie pan and gently press it around to make it fit the pie plate.

Trim the excess dough and add the filling.

Place the other rolled out dough on top and press edges together. Trim the excess dough and cut slits into the top of the dough to allow steam to escape when baking. Brush lightly with cream and decorative white sugar.

Bake at 375 for 90 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown. Let cool slightly and serve!

What To Serve With This Apple Pie…

I think the great thing about apple pie is that it goes with literally anything! A Thanksgiving feast, by itself, or with some ice cream. But here is a small list of things that go really well with this pie.

How To Store

The best way to store this pie is to cover it with either foil or plastic wrap and keep it in the fridge few a few days. You can always reheat it in the microwave, but the crust won’t be as crisp.

Expert Tips

  • If the pie dough cracks when you’re rolling it, there wasn’t enough water added and you’ll have to make it again.
  • Be careful not to fold the dough on itself when pressing it to the pan!
  • The cuts in the top of the dough can be as big, small, or decorative as you want.
  • Feel free to re-roll any excess dough and cut them out into shapes to decorate your pie with.
  • We used our Homemade Apple Pie Filling for this recipe.
