Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 2 hours 15 minutes
Servings 1 pie
- 1 pie crust 9″ deep-dish
- 6 apples about 3 pounds; peel, core, and thinly slice
- 2 tbsp flour all-purpose
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar
- 2 tbsp apple pie spice
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 2 tbsp unsalted butter
- Preheat the oven to 450°F. Place the bottom pie crust into your pie pan.
- In a small mixing bowl, blend the flour, sugar, brown sugar, and apple pie spice.
- Place the apple slices in a large mixing bowl, sprinkle with lemon juice, and add in the sugar-spice mix. Toss and mix until the apples are thoroughly coated, then spoon the apples into the bottom crust.
- Cut the butter into pea-sized (¼”) pieces and dot the top of the apples with them. Cover with the top crust, seal edges, and cut steam vents into the top crust.
- Bake at 450°F for 10 minutes, then lower the oven temperature to 350°F and bake an additional 50 minutes.
- Place the pie on a cooling rack (or just on top of your stove) and allow it to cool 30-60 minutes before slicing and serving.
I can’t teach you to make pie crust here (frankly I’m not very good at it) so either check out another site, or simply buy a ready-to-go pie crust.
