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.

    Hi Natasha, I just made my second pie. This time I even did the crust! This pie is amazing!! I used Honey crisp apples, a quick shake of vanilla and a pinch of allspice in addition to the cinnamon and the flavor is amazing!! My pies were always watery, I could never seem to get it right! Those days are history!! I shared your video with a coworker and his family lived the pie as well. Thanks so much for sharing.! I hope to post photos on your FB page soon.

    Amazing recipe! Thank you so much for taking time to do a video with it! my question is, can this pie be assembled for freezing and baking at a later date? Not that I mind eating it immediately but if I can bake some for family to pop in the oven on Thanksgiving or Christmas morning, that would be over the top awesome!

      You’re welcome, Vanesa. 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.

      The cinnamon actually prevents browning. Not sure how, but I know this because I make cinnamon apples as a snack pretty regularly (slice up and apple, put it in a baggie, add cinnamon, seal baggie and shake to coat). The apples will last all day with just the cinnamon!

    I’m going make this tomorrow. Can’t wait. I LOVE good pie crust, so I’d prefer to use a full top crust. If I do, I wonder if the filling will end up too runny because less moisture will evaporate than if I used a lattice crust. What do you think?

    I made it and it was a smashing success. I divided the recipe in two since apples are a bit costly. I used three apples and it turned out so good. The cinnamon gave a warm kick and the apples released there juices it was soft but still had a bite to it. Everyone was surprised that me and my sister did the lattice topping since I’m 12 and she’s 10 . It was the first time I made and ate pie. Thank you for letting me have that experience.

    Followed the recipe exactly. Loved the crust, loved the sauce, but something is missing for me and after several bites, I realized it’s lacking sweetness. Granny Smith apples being tart, it makes for a bit not sweet enough dessert in my opinion. I will try this recipe again but will mix the apples to include a sweeter variety. That’s why this is not a 5 star review.

      I use a combination of granny and honey crisp apples and reduced the sugar to half a cup instead of a cup as the honey crisp apples are sweet. This combo of apples is the best I find,,,tart and sweetness. Have been getting so much compliments from this recipe…it is a winner!🏆

    Okay I’m going to be %100 honest because when I bake I want the same thing
    I’m not a fan of the pie crust flavor (which is nothing you did)
    The apple filling flavor was a great but runny. (I’m not sure what it’s suppose to be)
    I’m not a huge fan of fruit pie in the first place I’m more of a cream pie person so I’m might not be the best judge of it.
    It was beautiful and magazine pictures perfect!

    Any ideas why it was runny? I used pink lady apples and before I put the filling into the crust I tasted an apple slice with the sauce and it was yummy

      October 2, 2021

      HI Amber, maybe it could be the number of apples used or any substitutions made? Also, not baking long enough would affect how the syrup thickens up. Lastly, you want the pie to rest and cool for the juices to thicken before slicing into it.

    Great filling. Not sure what I may have done wrong on the pie crust – although everyone raved about it, it was not flaky. 🙂 Wondering if there are any tips of what I may have done wrong (age of ingredients, or something along those lines?) Thanks for sharing … I’d like to try it again for a flakier crust. 🙂

      Hi Gracie, it’s so hard to say what the culprit is without being there but like you said it could be due to expired ingredients or any alterations made to the recipe. If there is too much flour, that could be the culprit also. Be sure to measure by fluffing the flour first with a spoon then spoon it into a dry ingredient measuring cup and scrape off the top. If you push your measuring cup into a flour bin, you will get up to 25% too much flour. Also, do not tap the flour down in the measuring cup.

      Hi Sandy, 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 it beyond 24 hours, I would refrigerate it. It’s nicely served warmed or at room temperature, but it does reheat well.

          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 for 350°F.

      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.

    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?

    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!

      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 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.
