Old Fashioned Baked Apple Pie 

Compliments of Angela Powers 

  • Heat oven to 425 degrees for 10 minutes. Then turn oven down to 325 degrees.

Pie Filling Ingredients:

6 cups thinly sliced apples (prefer Granny Smith apples; 6 – 8 apples)

¾ cup sugar (brown or white sugar)

2 Tbsps corn starch

1 tsp ground cinnamon

¼ tsp salt

1/8 tsp ground Nutmeg

1 Tbsp lemon juice

½ tsp lemon zest

2 Tbsps butter 

Crust Ingredients:

1 stick of butter

3 cups of flour

1/8 tsp salt

¼ cup of ice water 

  • Cut butter into flour. Form a large ball. (Do not handle too much because it causes the dough to be tough.)
  • Put dough in refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
  • Cut dough into half: Roll out dough to create the bottom pie crust and the top pie crust.
  • In large bowl, gently mix the apple filling ingredients. Then place into pie crust lined pan. 
  • Place 2 Tbsps of butter into this mixture. Put 2nd layer of crust on top of pie and cut slits into top of crust. 
  • Press edges (or flute) of pie crust together to seal the pie.
  • Bake pie for 40 – 45 minutes.
  • Cool pie on cake rack.
