Apple Pie Recipe with the Best Filling (VIDEO)

Classic Apple Pie Recipe with an irresistible homemade apple pie filling. From the best flaky pie crust to the generous saucy center, this recipe always gets glowing reviews. This is the pie everyone has to make for Thanksgiving!

We love apple recipes, from Baked Apples to Apple Slab Pie and let’s not forget Apple Cake. If you love apples, this apple pie is a must-try! Watch the video tutorial below and you’ll crave it until you make it.

Apple Pie Recipe:

This Apple Pie is a treasure of a recipe. The filling was adapted slightly from the famous Grandma Ople apple pie. The method for this filling is surprising but it will win you over. It’s well worth the extra 5 minutes and you’ll never want canned apple pie filling again.

Apple Pie Crust:

We love this apple pie crust just as much as we love the filling. Since it’s an all-butter pie crust (no shortening), it’s flaky and tender. The bottom is never soggy but forms a crispness at the edges which doesn’t get any better.

Imagine roasted saucy apples bubbling through that flaky lattice crust. This is the only apple pie recipe you’ll ever need. Click to watch the pie crust video tutorial and print the recipe. We use this same crust for Blueberry Pie and Cherry Pie.

The Best Apples for Apple Pie:

Any sweet/tart and crisp apple will do and you can adjust the sugar accordingly, we use a full cup of sugar for tart Granny Smith and slightly less for a sweeter apple such as Golden Delicious.

  • Granny Smith – firm, tart and the gold standard for baking
  • Golden Delicious – balanced sweet/tart flavor
  • Jonagold – sweetness amplified by baking
  • Honeycrisp – ultra-crisp and sweet
  • Braeburn – crisp and doesn’t get mushy
  • Pink Lady – sweet and tart apples, hold their shape

Our Favorite Tools to Make Pie:

You don’t need fancy equipment to make a pie. If you don’t have a food processor, you can use a pastry blender to cut the butter into the flour until it forms pea-sized crumbles, then add 6-8 Tbsp ice-cold water, folding it in with a spatula between each addition. It’s easy as pie! Here are our favorite pie-making tools to make the job easier:

To Keep Pie From Browning Too Fast:

If you find the edges of your pie are browning too quickly, Cut a 3″ circle out of the center of a square sheet of foil and loosely place with the dull-side down over the top of your pie.

More Fall Baking Recipes:

Fall always puts me in the mood for baking. All of these recipes are on our regular rotation. These recipes are easy to make and are so good, they are our go-to Thanksgiving recipes!

Watch How to Make Apple Pie:

With the right recipe, homemade apple pie is easier than you think. This crust comes together fast and requires basic ingredients you probably already have on hand. The filling is scrumptious and equally simple to make.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Make the pie crust recipe and chill per instructions while preparing the filling. Preheat oven to 425˚F.

  2. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in 3 Tbsp flour then simmer for 1 minute, whisking constantly. Whisk in 1/4 cup water, 1 cup sugar and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and continue simmering 3 minutes, whisking frequently then remove from heat.

  3. Peel, remove cores and thinly slice 7 cups of apples and place them in a large bowl. Sprinkle the top with 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon and toss to combine. Pour the sauce over the apples and stir to coat the apple slices.

  4. Sprinkle your work surface with flour and roll out bottom pie crust to a 12" diameter circle. Wrap it around your rolling pin to transfer it to the 9" pie plate. Add apple mixture, mounding slightly in the center and being careful not to get the filling on the edges which would make it difficult to seal.

  5. Roll second crust into an 11" round and cut into 10 even thickness strips using a pizza cutter. Arrange strips in a woven lattice pattern over the top (see video tutorial). Beat together 1 egg and 1 Tbsp water and brush the top with egg mixture.

  6. Bake at 425˚F for 15 minutes. Reduce the heat to 350˚F and continue baking another 45 minutes or until apples are soft and filling is bubbling through the vents. Rest at room temp 1 hour before serving.

    I would like to make this pie for a dinner gathering and will normally prepare the dessert in the morning. Will this end up soggy by evening time and if I were to reheat it, what temp shall I reheat at and for how long please? Thank you!

      Hi Yvonne, I would bake it in the morning then let it cool to room temperature. You can either serve it at room temperature or warm it up a little in the oven. It’s great at room temperature though and it will not get soggy.

    I have done this recipe more times than I can count and its delicous.
    I am having a problem though when I make the pie as big as yours the crust crumbles very easily and it looks very sloppy

    Is there something that I might be doing wrong? Thankyou

      Hi Analise, if the dough is crumbling, it may need more water. Make sure also that you are measuring your flour correctly, or just add slightly more cold water for it to hold together easier.

      Hi Krissy, If making it a day ahead, I would let it cool to room temperature then cover and keep it at room temperature overnight. If keeping beyond 24 hours, I would refrigerate it. It’s nice served warmed or at room temperature, but it does reheat well.

    This was my first attempt at making a homemade pie. In the past I’d use store bought crust and filling. I will never go back to making a pie with store bought goods. The crust was perfectly golden and flaky, which I mixed using my kitchen aid since I don’t have a food processor. Never done lattice before, but was pretty easy once I figured out how to do it. I used granny smith apples that were sliced pretty thin by my kitchen aid slicer. This cut down on prep time. Everything came together wonderfully! This was the best pie I’ve had in a long time. Definitely will make again. Thank you for sharing your recipes. Love trying them out! My husband asked me to make him a peach pie. I’m hoping you have a recipe I can follow for that.

    While I was letting the sauce cool, I did the apples(which took longer than I expected). Once I went to put the sauce on, it was hard. Is that what happens if you wait too long or did I do something else wrong?
    Other than messing up, I enjoyed this a lot! It was fun to make and easy to follow!

      Hi Katie, that could be the culprit but, I’m puzzled by why it would be “hardened” though – maybe overcooking or changes in ingredient quantities?

    Hi Natasha, Thanks for the delicious recipe. I added 1/2 cup of dried cranberries, and therefore substituted 1/4 cup apple juice, 5 tbsp butter, 1/3 cup of sugar, dash of salt, dash of lemon and it was fabulous. ( I used some of the butter to grease the glass pie plate for easy serving and cleanup).

    This recipe was great! The only issue I encountered was that the apples were fairly undercooked and a bit crunchy when it was done baking. I’ve seen others recipes that pre-cook the apples in the filling. I’m wondering if I could do the same here? While the filling is simmering, could I add the apples to make them a bit softer? I know the apples shouldn’t be too soft to maintain their shape, but I definitely like them a bit softer! Thanks!

    • Natasha
      May 31, 2021

      Hi Jo, that could also be due to slicing the apples too thick or maybe it was the type of apple used? I hope that is helpful for troubleshooting. Usually, with the lengthy baking time, the apples should soften up.

However, I couldn’t make the sauce as it curdled the minute I added water as per the instructions. Any suggestions on why this happened and how to avoid this? I ended up adding flour butter and sugar to apple slices directly for filling. It still turned out great though 🙂

    This pie is delicious and I appreciate how easy it was to follow the recipe/video! Very accessible for beginners! I used all the filling and I thought it was perfect! I ended up needing to refrigerate it overnight because it was done baking at midnight (oops). It was not runny at all, so could be that people need to wait longer or refrigerate it.

    I also didn’t have a food processor large enough so I used my stand mixer with a paddle attachment and it worked fine- in case anyone else is in the same position.

    This is a wonderful recipe!!! The best tasting apple pie I have ever had. I don’t have a pie dish so I made it in a small cake tin. Next time I would put half of that delicious sauce in but as I said it tasted AMAZING just didn’t have that solid slice consistency as it was so juicy. I was so happy with the crust as well. I did sprinkle some sugar on top of the egg wash…not needed at all. I loved this apple pie! Thank you so much!

        Hi Jay, I haven’t had it turn out watery but I am always happy to help troubleshoot. Make sure not to use too many apples – also it could be due to the type of apples used. Lastly, make sure to give it enough time in the oven for the pectin to break down and cause those juices to thicken.

    I gave up making pies years ago because the crust never turned out. Used store bought for awhile, but hated those results too. Was gifted six bags of apples and came across this recipe so thought I’d give it a try with fingers crossed. In the words of my husband, this was the very, very, very, very best pie he has ever had. It turned out beautiful too with the lattice crust top. I have a picture but don’t know how to add it to this post. I did add the 1 Tbsp sugar into the egg wash like the video said, instead of the 1 Tbsp water like the printed recipe. There was no noticeable difference in the taste. The lattice crust was golden and crazy delicious and flaky. This is definitely my new go-to recipe for apple pie! The most difficult part of the entire baking process was waiting a full hour for the pie to cool. Thanks Natasha I can’t wait to share this with family and friends.

      Hi Susan, I misspoke in the video (like a verbal typo) and there’s no fixing a video audio once it’s out there. Sorry about that and there is no sugar in the egg wash. I’m so happy you loved it anyway and that this has become your new favorite. I wonder if I’m missing out by not putting sugar in my egg wash?

    If you want to freeze the pie for later use, would you bake it and then freeze it or do all steps and not bake?

    I want to gift them.

      Hi Monica, you sure can. This recipe can be made ahead. You can store it in the fridge already baked and cover it loosely with plastic wrap and reheat it the next day in the oven. I haven’t tried freezing this or making it ahead for a long time, and I worry if you assemble and leave it unbaked for two days, it will get soggy.

    Made this pie along with your pie crust three times all with great success! My friends I fed it to loved it too. The first two times I used fuji apples which ended up being a bit sweet even when cutting sugar (still delicious though). When I tried the full recipe with honeycrisp apples it turned out even better! Thank you for the amazing recipe! 🙂

    Hi Natasha, I have asked about making the Apple pie in advance and thanks for your reply. I know you said to warm it up in the oven the next day but can I leave it out on the counter for several hours and serve at room temp? Will it still be good? I’m gonna bring it to a place where there’s no oven for me warm it up. 😉 thank you very much!!

      Hi Wendy, I haven’t tested it that way, but I would not assemble the pie until ready to bake. The crust might get soggy if you keep it refrigerated overnight. It would be better to bake the pie and let it rest and cool at room temperature overnight to serve tomorrow.

    Hi Natasha,

    Thanks for this recipe. Do you have any tips with baking it in a countertop oven? I’m worried the pie’s crust might burn before the filling gets cooked through. Or does the aluminum foil step you mentioned above do the trick?

    Regards,
    Nate

      April 2, 2021

      Hi Nate, I haven’t tested this on a countertop oven but you would definitely want to have an aluminum foil shield ready as soon as you see browning so it doesn’t get too dark. It might bake faster in a counter oven since its closer to the heating element, but that is also specific to whatever model you are using. I hope it works well for you!

      Hi Anusha, red delicious tend to turn mushy in the pie so I would not recommend them. They are also much sweeter and you would have to cut the sugar down, maybe as much as by half.

    I made this the other day with one slight variation and it was amazing! I reserved about a quarter cup of the sauce before mixing it into the apples. I egg washed the crust and baked the pie as per the recipe. When it was just a few minutes from being done I pulled it out, rewarmed the sauce in the microwave and brushed it on the top and put it back in the oven for the last few minutes. Once the pie cooled I had a beautiful sugar glazed pie crust!

    So when you need to egg wash the edges of the pie crust, do you mix 1 egg and 1 Tbs of sugar or 1 Tbs of water together? The instructions say egg and water but your video says egg and sugar.

    Can I make it ahead

      Hi Ghousia, This recipe can be made ahead. You can store it in the fridge already baked and cover it loosely with plastic wrap and reheat it the next day in the oven. I haven’t tried freezing this or making it ahead for a long time, and I worry if you assemble and leave it unbaked for two days, it will get soggy.

    Thank you for the lovely recipe. I always make apple crumble so this was somthing completely different esp the sauce. Please help though, my pie came out very dark :-(. can i pre-cook the apples a bit and then cook the pie on 180C (i think it might be something like 365F) for the hour? or should i cover it with foil in the beginning and then remove the foil. The very dark crust doesnt look nice. Thanks so much. Love from Belgium

      Hi, if the apples came out dark, it’s likely due to using too much cinnamon. A little goes a long way in this recipe.

        No. The pie crust. It is just lovely but its so dark. Doesnt look as nice as yours in the photos. The apples were great. I cubed them. The cinnamon was perfect. I used the recipe as is. Didnt change anything. So thats why i was thinking to bake it at a lower temperature but then i might have to pre cook the apples a bit. How do you keep your pastry so light golden and not very dark?

          Oh, I see, you may just need to shield the crust with foil (see tips for that in the post above).

    This recipe was really good, but the only complaint I have is that it’s too watery. Even after letting the apple pie set for a day, the filling was still so watery. I think the reason for this is that the recipe doesn’t actually cook down the liquid in the apples, which is why it tends to have too much juice. If you are looking for another recipe, I recommend ‘preppy kitchens’ apple pie. It was not watery at all, and it set nicely. But overall, I love your recipes Natasha! Your soups, and chicken pot pie always turn out amazing!

      Hi Carly, I haven’t had it turn out watery but I am always happy to help troubleshoot. Make sure not to use too many apples – also it could be due to the type of apples used. Lastly, make sure to give it enough time in the oven for the pectin to break down and cause those juices to thicken.

      I hear this is a problem when using granny smith apples due to their very high water content. It has been recommended to macerate the apples first (slice the apples and toss them in the 1 cup of sugar) and let them set for about an hour or 2. This will take out much of the juice. You can then reincorporate this juice in a reduction and put it back in your pie filling

    Hi Natasha.

    My sauce did not turn smooth like a caramel sauce. Instead it was chunky. No matter how much I stirred. I followed ur direction but not sure where I went wrong.

      Hi Shani, make sure to cook the flour in butter before adding the liquids. Also, avoid cooking at too high of heat. If you are seeing clumps when you add it to the apples, that is normal and could be due to cold apples, but no worries, it will come together in the oven.

    This looks wonderful! Is it possible to make it ahead of time? Or would you recommend putting the pie together and waiting to bake it on the day of an event?

    Hi Natasha
    My 1st time making pastry n Apple pie.
    It taste very nice, but I think the ingredients maybe too wet. The pie cannot hold the Apple ingredients.
    The top pastry is very crunchy Overall taste very nice.

    I think my problem is I don’t have oven. I use airfryer instead

    I will keep on trying again
    Maybe next times I put in lesser water

      Hi Amanda, this recipe wasn’t intended for an air fryer and I suspect that was the culprit.

    Hi Natasha .. great recipe! but I have a question my caramel when I am cooking it looks exactly like the video, but when I let it cool down it gets harder it is not smooth anymore … do you know what i am doing wrong? I am following the 1 min and 3 min cooking time … not sure why it solidifies when it gets cold… thanks 🙂

      Hi Katia, if you are talking about the sauce that mixes into the apples, it is normal for it to get a little thick when it hits the cold apples but no worries, it will thin out and bake up well with the pie.

    I haven’t tried this recipe yet, but knowing Natasha’s recipes, and by the comments, its going to be another one for my recipe box. However, question before I make this one. Once baked are the apples soft or do they still have a firmness or slight crunch to them? I’m looking for a softer texture. If it is firmer, do you think I could boil the apples in water/juice or even in the sauce for a few minutes before adding them to pie crust? I assume if I add the apples to the sauce while on the stovetop that may ruin the sauce and it won’t setup as well when cooking in the oven? Thank you and I just love your recipes😊

      Hi Sharon, the apples are soft once they are baked. Be sure to slice them thinly so they have a chance to soften up. I hope you love the pie!

    Question on the size of the pie pan I need for this pie, the recipe calls for a 9 inch but not the depth of pan, my pan is 1.5 is that deep enough or will the filling spilling over be a concern?

    I used the recipe for the pie filling with my mother’s pie crust recipe! The filling was delightful! I used Fiji apples since I had an abundance of them and added a dash of nutmeg in too. This recipe is a keeper! I can’t wait to try and make it again with other apple varieties!

    Sensational! My family loved it and it’s a keeper!
    I’ve used 1/2c of sugar instead of 1c and sprinkled the crust with cinnamon sugar.
    My son served it with vanilla ice cream.

    Wonderful recipe! I worked at a busy apple orchard for years and made 1000’s of pies….after some tweeking for my own taste (and a few tricks that I learned over the years), I have to say, this pie was delightful! I have froze the piecrust, thawed it, and it is fine, I made it a day ahead then baked it and it was great Thank you for sharing your passion for food with everyone… you do it with such flair!
