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.

Crust for pie with ingredients to make pie including apples, sugar, flour, butter, cinnamon

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 made this not one, but two of these today and they turned out AMAZING! By far, the best apple pie recipe that I’ve ever made. The recipe was simple and very easy to follow, and my results were almost identical to yours (which I was SO excited about- I always follow measurements precisely and I get so cross when recipes don’t work!).

    I’ve recommended this recipe to quite a few friends now and I can’t wait to try this crust with some different fillings.

    I uploaded a photo on my insta today and tagged you in it

    Ive tried making this filling three times and every time I’ve tried it doesn’t taste sweet once I’m done, it just taste like butter. It doesn’t look like a filling either looks watery. Could it be the pot Im using or is it the butter Im using? ( I do use unsalted butter)
    Is there a specific butter brand I can use?
    Please please help this looks delicious and I can’t figure out what’s wrong🥺

    Thanks for the recipe. The taste is really great. I’ve made twice and the whole family love it.

    What happen if we didn’t refrigerate the crust dough and just sit for 1 hour?

    Why the filling still runny and collapse when we slice the pie? is it normal? or is there a way to prevent?

    Thanks again

      Hi Thomas, make sure you let the pie rest and cool before slicing into it to give the filling a chance to thicken. Also, make sure not to make any modifications to the filling.

    THE BEST APPLE PIE RECIPE!!!

    actually, it’s too good! I’ve made 5 apple pies in the last 2 weeks… I think I need therapy!
    my wife is banning me for making any more for a while 🙁

    The sauce is AMAZING!

    if I wanna make a 12″ pie… how much to I increase the dough measurements? you should have a page for measurements of different sizes.

    Absolutely love this apple pie recipe with your pie crust recipe! Making it the second time and my house smells heavenly!! I just replaced the sugar in the sauce with brown sugar and also sprinkled some lemon on my apples before transferring them into the sauce.Turned out delish!! I had some problem with the pastry breaking and crumbling when rolling it out probably since it was my first time making the pastry from scratch. But I fixed that by sprinkling more flour on my counter when rolling the pastry out, wetting my finger tips very lightly and ‘fixing’ any crack I saw with my wet hands and finally sprinkled a bit more flour before transferring into the baking dish and refrigerating it a bit before baking. It was perfect thank you!!

    Tried to made this and it was yummy and my employers and their 3 y old kid liked it so much!!! The filling was heavenly. My only problem was with the crust. Failed it. Tried to follow your easy crust pie but as I don’t have a bigger food processor, I used a small one and mix the butter and flour in batches, probably the reason why I had a hard time working on my crust. It crumbles fast and as soon as it finished baking it breaks but the bottom crust still have some like doughy texture.

    Hello Natasha,
    Do you pre-bake the crust? If so, for how long and at what temp? Do you allow the pre-baked crust to cool before adding the apples and the top? The edges of my lattice stripes were melting on the hot dish. 🙁
    Thank-you! 🙂

    Reply

    • Natasha
      June 16, 2020

      Hi Lina, there is no need to pre-bake the crust. It sounds like maybe your top crust was out too long and got warm. If you notice your crust no longer feels cool to the touch, you can refrigerate the whole premade pie for 15-30 minutes before baking which will cool the butter in the dough and keep it from ‘melting’.

    Hi Natasha, I made it and it tastes great, although my husband says it is too sweet. I have questions, why the pie have lots of sauce when I cut it? And also, why the crust a little bit sticky? Is it because I use mixer? Overall, thanks for your recipe. It’s my first time making apple pie!

      May 15, 2020

      Hi Maria, the sweetness can vary depending on the type of apples used which is why we love tart Granny smith apples. Also, the crust would be sticky if using a mixer since you are blending the butter into the flour rather than cutting it in.

    I love this apple pie recipe! My first time to make a pie and it was a success although I have to take it out after 35 minutes only because it’s past the golden brown color and close to turning black. I was just wondering why do you need to bake it at 220c first?

    Reply

    • Natasha
      April 28, 2020

      Hi, the higher heat ensures that the filling will cook and reach the proper heat and then we reduce the temperature so the crust doesn’t burn. Starting on high heat also ensures the crust ends up flaky without melting the butter in it.

      Hello my pie is baking right now but the instructions says the egg wash is egg plus water but in the video instructions are egg plus sugar. I did egg plus sugar and top of my crust burned in the high temperature at the beginning. Can I cover with foil next time to ensure it doesn’t burn?

        Hi Diana, that was a blooper. I meant to say water and have no idea why I said sugar. I hope it was clear in the video that I used water. It’s definitely water.

    It’s my hubby’s birthday today and with all the self isolating going on there’s no way we can go out for dinner which is a tradition. He’s not a big cake eater but he loves pie so I broke down and baked him this apple pie. I may have started a new tradition – he raved about it! And he gets to have the whole thing to himself which made him very happy lol. The filling was different than any other recipe I found and it actually looked similar to the canned filling texture wise. Thanks for the recipe!!

    Do you take the pie out of the oven then let it reduce to 350degrees? My oven takes awhile to change temperature. It’s ok for the pie to be sitting on the counter while the oven reduces?

      Hi, I do not take the pie out of the oven. Most ovens take some time to reduce down in temperature naturally, but if there is something unusual about yours, you may open the door for a couple of minutes to cool it down faster.

        Hi Natasha! Thank you for your amazing apple pie recipe.
        I just made this for my father in law.
        Question, do you recommend keeping it in the fridge or at room temperature? and for the sauce filling, is it too bad that if i don’t have unsalted butter and use the regular one??
        Thank you!

          Hi Josefina, If making it a day ahead – I would let it cool to room temperature then cover and keep it at room temperature overnight. You can also refrigerate and put it in the oven before serving just until it is warm. There is no added salt in the pie filling so that may work.

My boyfriend and I ate almost half of the pie right away…it was THAT tasty. Don’t worry if you’re a semi-beginner baker like me and are slightly intimidated by pies– if you follow this recipe carefully, it should turn out great.

      Hi Lucy, it should thicken up nicely and be more like a thick sauce than runny. Did you change anything with the filling mix? Were your apples really large? It could have been too much apples if your 6 apples were very large.

    Why have I never tried this method before?! I have a pretty set apple pie recipe, but I’ve had inconsistent results in the past in terms of the filling setting up correctly. What I LOVED about this was the fact that the guesswork was removed in terms of amounts of flour and butter. I also kept the ratio of sugar the same but substituted some brown sugar (and a secret ingredient) per my normal recipe. It turned out to be the absolute best apple pie I’ve ever made!

    Tip: I see some reviews mentioning soggy pie bottoms… when you crack your egg to make your egg wash, separate the whites from the yolks. Brush the bottom crust with just the white, and reserve the yolk (plus a little water of milk) for the top wash. The whites help to seal the bottom, and it really does wonders in terms of preventing soggy bottoms.

    The filling was 6 apples, 2 tbsp of flour, and half a lemon. There was liquid in the bowl (not thick at all). Cooked for an hour at 350 and let it sit for 4 hours.

    The way you make the filling it should not be runny after following the recipe right?

      Hi Ambreen, I haven’t tried assembling it but my concern is that the filling might get too juicy and cause the crust to be soggy. If anyone else has experimented, please let us know! I have tried making the crust the day before and you just have to let it sit at room temperature for a bit or it will be too difficult to roll out.

    I know the pie crust can be made ahead and refrigerated but what about the apple mixture. Can it be made a couple days ahead and then put together with the crust and baked later?

      A lot of frozen pie crusts come two crusts to a package. You can roll out the second crust and use it for a top. I’ve done this for a making pot pies in the past, works perfectly!

    Hi Natasha – I’m trying this recipe this weekend for a friend’s Thanksgiving lunch but I have 3 pies to make (Apple, Pumpkin and Pecan). Besides making the crust in advance is there anything else that can be done the day before to help manage time on the day? AND…:-) can I use this pie crust recipe for Pumpkin and Pecan pies? xx

      Hi Linda, you can use this pie crust for pumpkin and pecan pies but I would recommend pre-baking or blind baking the crust. I have instructions on how to blind bake in our pie crust recipe post.

My only issue is that the filling didn’t thicken as much as yours did…not entirely sure why but I know there are a couple things I’m going to try differently next time so we’ll see what happens!! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much for all your amazing recipes!

      Hi Lizz, I haven’t had that experience but it is very possible that it is due to the type of apples used, If they are over-ripe or not crisp apples, they can get mushy.

      Hi Diana, That could happen if you used a really small pie pan (like the tin disposable ones), or if using too many apples. I would suggest placing a sheet of foil under the pie to catch any stray juices. Also, make sure to watch the full video tutorial to see where things may have gone wrong.

    I don’t even know where to start! lol Made this pie today and I was so proud of myself! Turned out so delicious. Used granny smith and some other green apples from farmer market that had a lot of flavor. Only used 3/4 of a cup of sugar for the filling and it was perfect! I used to go to the Apple Hill to get that special apple pie every year now I can make my own that taste just like that! I’m so happy. My family loved it too.Thank you so much for the recipe Natasha!

    I tried this recipe over the weekend… and I didn’t like it as much as your original recipe (deep dish apple pie). It was till very tasty, except I didn’t like the mushiness that sauce gave the pie… and I like a closed top instead of the lattice top.

      Hi Julia, I’m glad you loved our deep dish apple pie. This one isn’t normally supposed to be mushy unless a soft apple is used – could that be the issue? Granny smith apples are best since they are crisp and don’t become mushy. I have some other options listed above in the post which may help.

    I had a family favorite apple pie that we’ve made every year – couldn’t substitute with anything for fear of getting yelled at by family members. LOL! However, this one might have just broken our traditional apple pie. Unbelievably delicious!!! My family went crazy for it and it was gone in less time it took me to make it. I did cheat a little and used store bought crust due to time constraints but the filling is out of this world good!!!

      Hi Ibian, you can definitely make this up to 3 days ahead. Let it sit at room temperature about 30 minutes before rolling or it will be difficult to roll out if it is refrigerated for long periods. This dough will work for pumpkin pie also.

      Hi Nivia, you will want to use it right out of the refrigerator. If it’s chilled longer than an hour (say overnight), you will want it to sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes so it is easier to roll out.

      Hi Debi, the best way to make sure is to bake long enough. Starting the sauce on the stove also helps to ensure an even baking of all the apples. If you want to ensure soft apples, bake at the longer end of the time range.

      Hi Vlada, you can make the crust a day ahead. That is what I did for this video (I made the crust the day before). You’ll just have to let it sit at room temperature for a little longer before rolling. When it gets too cold, it’s a little tougher to roll. It won’t work to crumble butter by hand. Your hands are too warm and will soften the butter too much. I haven’t tried with this recipe but a crumble topping may work, although you would still need the pie dough for the bottom. That sounds like an entirely different French or Dutch apple pie.
