Old Fashioned Apple Pie

Old Fashioned Apple Pie

A must for every holiday! What I love most about this pie is its rustic look and homemade taste.

Ingredients:

Pie crust:

  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 3 sticks butter, unsalted, cubed
  • 1/2 cup very cold ice water
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Pie filling:

  • 5 large apple, Peeled, cored, sliced
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar plus 1 teaspoon for top
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon, ground
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg, ground
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 egg plus 1 tablespoon water, beaten lightly

Instructions:

  1. In a food processor fitted with a metal blade, pulse flour, sugar and salt together. Add in cold, cubed butter and pulse.
  2. Add in cold water, 1 tablespoon at a time, process until mixture turns into a dough. Do not over mix.
  3. Remove dough from food processor and divide into 2 equal pieces. Gently form each piece into a ball and flatten into a disk. Wrap each disk well in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  4. Preheat over to 375 degrees F.
  5. In a large bowl place apple slices and lemon juice. Toss well so apples are coated. Set aside.
  6. In a medium bowl mix together brown sugar, sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg. Pour sugar mixture over apples and toss to coat. Set aside.
  7. On a lightly floured surface roll out one disk of pie dough into a 12 inch circle and gently fit dough into a 9 inch pie dish. Trim extra dough around edges and fold excess under the edge of the pan.
  8. Pour apple mixture into pie dish and top with pats of butter. Roll out second half of dough and place on top of apple mixture. Seal the edges using a fork or your fingers.
  9. Brush crust with egg wash and sprinkle with remaining teaspoon of sugar. Cut 4 gashes on top to allow steam to escape.
  10. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until crust is golden.
  11. Enjoy!!
