Cuisine American



  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 2/3 cup slightly cooled butter
  • 4 tbsp slightly cooled butter
  • 5 tbsp cold water

Apple Filling

  • 6 cups peeled and sliced apples
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.


  • Mix flour, butter, and water until proper consistency for pie crust. Divide in half. Shape half of the crust dough into the pie tin, save other half for the top.
  • Optional: Put a thin layer of jam (any flavor that won't overpower the apple) on the bottom pie crust to prevent it from becoming wet after adding the apple filling.


  • Mix together apples, sugar, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Pour into pie tin.
  • Optional: Dot with just a few extra (small) pieces of butter evenly.

Top Crust

  • Form a flat, round crust and fit it over the top of the pie tin. Cut lines into the crust, or simply stab with a fork throughout the top of the crust to create holes. You can create any pattern you want.


  • Bake at 450 for 15 minutes.
  • Reduce oven temperature to 350, continue baking for 35 minutes.
  • Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
