Classic Apple Pie: Grandma’s Secret Recipe

Picture this: Grandma in her cozy kitchen, apron on, carefully measuring ingredients for her timeless Classic Apple Pie. This cherished family recipe has been passed down through generations, a true embodiment of comfort and tradition.


  • 6-7 large apples, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 pie crusts (homemade or store-bought)
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 egg (for egg wash)


  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C). Place one pie crust in a 9-inch pie dish and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the sliced apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and lemon juice. Toss until the apples are evenly coated.
  3. Fill the pie crust with the apple mixture, dot the top with butter pieces, and cover with the second pie crust. Seal and flute the edges.
  4. Beat the egg and brush it over the top of the pie for a golden finish.
  5. Make several small slits in the top crust to allow steam to escape during baking.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, then reduce the oven temperature to 350°F (175°C) and bake for an additional 35-40 minutes, or until the pie is golden brown and the filling is bubbly.
  7. Allow the pie to cool before slicing and serving. Enjoy a slice of nostalgia with every bite!
