Bake the Perfect Apple Pie from Scratch

Apple pie is a classic dessert that evokes feelings of warmth and comfort. There’s something special about the aroma of a freshly baked apple pie wafting through the air, filling your home with anticipation and delight. This recipe will guide you through the steps to create a truly perfect apple pie from scratch, ensuring a flaky crust and a deliciously spiced apple filling that will leave everyone coming back for more.


  • 6 cups of thinly sliced, peeled apples
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 package refrigerated pie crusts
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 egg white, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar


  1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).
  2. In a large bowl, combine the sliced apples, 3/4 cup of sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and lemon juice. Toss until the apples are evenly coated.
  3. Roll out one of the pie crusts and place it in a 9-inch pie dish. Trim any excess dough from the edges.
  4. Pour the apple mixture into the pie crust, then dot with pieces of butter.
  5. Roll out the second pie crust and place it over the filling. Seal the edges and cut slits in the top to allow steam to escape.
  6. Brush the top crust with the beaten egg white and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of sugar.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 350°F (175°C) and continue baking for an additional 35 to 40 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown.
  8. Allow the pie to cool before serving. Enjoy a slice of warm, homemade apple pie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
