Best Apple Pie


  • 5 Golden Delicious apples
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 stick salted butter, cut into 8 pieces
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon cinnamon
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 refrigerated or frozen pie crusts
  • One egg, beaten
  • ¼ cup white sugar + 1 tsp cinnamon


  • Set the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Peel and core apples, and chop into large bite-size pieces. Set aside in a bowl, tossing with the lemon juice to prevent browning.
  • In a separate, smaller bowl, mix flour with sugars, cinnamon, and water. Stir into the apples and toss to coat.
  • Press one of the pie crusts into an aluminum pie tin and prick several times with a fork. Add apple mixture. Dot with butter pieces.
  • Cut remaining pie crust into strips and place in a criss-cross (or woven, if you’re feeling extra fancy) pattern over the apple mixture, using longer strips in the middle and leaving a small space between.
  • Brush the pie with beaten egg and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
  • Bake 35-40 minutes or until pie crust is golden brown.

The classic apple that’s recommended for baking apple pies is the Granny Smith. But I’ve found that Golden Delicious are my go-to apples and have used them in my apple pies for years.
