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 in the center of the oven 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.

Recipe Notes

*Place a sheet of foil on the rack below the apple pie to catch any potential drips from the pie.

    Hi Natasha
    I made the pie yesterday and came out to be the best tasting. However, my crust became flaky and I could not correctly make the lattice shape as it was breaking into several pieces, unlike as explained in your video. Perhaps I had too much water?

    Reply

    • NatashasKitchen.com
      February 3, 2023

      Hi Para! If the crust is flaky and breaking it’s usually a result of not enough water or too much flour. You may need to use more or less water depending on how things were measured and the temperature of your ingredients. It’s best to watch for visual cues. Also- watch my tutorial on how to measure your ingredients HERE.

    By far, the best apple pie I’ve ever eaten. Even with using a pre-made pie crust which I didn’t lattice, this pie is just outstanding. I did use 1/3 cup of brown sugar and 2/3 cup regular sugar but otherwise followed the recipe as written. This one is a winner !

    Hi Natasha. When I make the sauce the fat from the butter separated from the sugar and flour mixture. It happened as soon as I added the water and sugar. So it wasn’t a sauce for me. What might have caused that?

    Hi Natasha! I love this apple pie recipe! It is amazing, but I did have a question. How (if there is any change) would the recipe change if I wanted to *not do the lattice crust on the top? I just wanted to roll it out on top. Would I need to poke holes in the top of the crust? How would the time change, etc.

      Hi Alexis! I’m so glad to hear that. This is our favorite pie crust! The filling will thicken as the pie cools. It also depends on the type of apples you used. In the future, you can also use a little more flour in the filling if needed.

      No! not to bake it more. You simply do the following:

      To prepare the filling:
      melt butter
      add apples (that already have sugar on them) (that is brown sugar and white sugar) and cook stirring until the sugar dissolves and the mixture begins to simmer, about 2 minutes. cover reduce heat simmer until apples soften ( not too much) and the juices are released, about 7 minutes. Then remove the apple pieces and allow to cool. Then simmer the leftover juices until lightly carmelized, about 10 minutes, Later these will be put together (while cool) and then baked into the pie (with out the black birds). Good Luck!

    Delicious pie recipe — I tend to use Cortland apples and usually melt my butter and pour over the apples, but this recipe took it to the next level by blending all of the ingredients in a pot. I cut down the water and added orange juice instead. Added cinnamon in the melted mixture and added more over the apples. The pie is a nice consistency throughout. Thank you for sharing!

    I made the sauce without issue on Thanksgiving but it seems to be causing me issues today!

      Hi Kenneth, I am always happy to help troubleshoot. If the sauce is heated for too long or over too high of heat, it will get too thick. If that happens, mix it together with the apples as well as you can and it will still come together and be ok after it’s baked in the oven and the apples release their juices.

    Hi there! I made this pie at Thanksgiving. I had to cook it about 20 minutes extra to see the juices bubbling, & apples appear cooked. It was amazing!!! Best I ever made! I did it the same way next time, but the apples (Granny Smiths) stayed crunchy, less juicy all around. I have a free standing oven thermometer, so I’m sure the temp was reliable. Do you have any advice?

    I’m pulling this out of my freezer to bake today – do I bake it from frozen or should I thaw it first? Do I follow the same baking instructions?

      Hi LP, you will bake it from a frozen state. It may take a few more minutes so keep your eye on it in the oven.

    I was wondering if I could do 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2cup white sugar? Also, could I add vanilla to the sugar mixture once its taken off heat- before adding it to the apples?

    Possibly THE best apple pie I have ever made. However, could you possibly have omitted a tiny, but important ingredient in the sauce?—salt? My grandma always preached to me that if my butter was unsalted, I should add at least a pinch, maybe even two, to the apples. I did that with this recipe and it was delicious! Perhaps the recipe for the pie filling wasn’t supposed to have any salt, but I felt more confident adding it. I’d love to hear what you think, Natasha, as well as other bakers who’ve made this wonderful pie. Thanks for your patience!

    I made this pie for my family Thanksgiving and it was delicious! I used Granny Smith apples and followed the recipe except I used store bought roll out pie crust (I am not successful with pie crust). I also just used the whole crust on top, no lattice, just vented it. My husband could not stop eating it. I plan to make your blueberry pie recipe for him next! Thank you for sharing!

    Made the apple pie for Thanksgiving, following the recipe exactly. It was amazing. First pie I had ever made. Turned out perfect and was a huge hit. I wish I could post a picture of it!

    Tip: Definitely put foil or a sheet pan on a rack underneath the pie. I missed that instruction and had a bit of a mess to clean up as some of the gooey goodness leaked through the lattice. Even so, it was well worth it.

    Thought I’d try a new recipe this year. Wasn’t crazy about this one, despite the reviews. The one I typically use has nutmeg, brown sugar, and 1/4 of the butter. I thought the light caramelizing of the sugar and butter would make up for the brown sugar, but it ended up just having a generic taste.

    Made this for my family of 15 for Thanksgiving this year (my first apple pie) and it was a hit! My family devoured the whole pie so I’ll be making another one for my husband to enjoy. My brother in law, who is a pie connoisseur, said it was the best apple pie he had ever had! Very easy to put together and bake. I only got to sample a small slice but it was quite tasty. Thanks for the recipe. Made the pie dough the night before and put the pie together and baked it early Thanksgiving morning after putting the turkey in the oven. Made the kitchen smell divine! The only difficult part was waiting to cut it and have a slice.

      Hi Jen! This pie refrigerates well and you can keep it at room temperature for 1-2 days. It reheats well in the oven if needed. You can also assemble it, freeze it and then bake it fresh from a frozen state on the day of. I hope that helps!

    i am making this pie atm and the sugar mixture turned solid and chunky while letting it cool the first time so I reheated it and it went back to a more caramel texture but i’m not sure what happened to make it that way. also does that mixture have to be cooled all the way because it’s taking a long time and the apples are browning

      Hi Hailey! No, it does not need to cool completely. Also, be sure to measure your flour correctly, using too much flour could cause it to be thick. As you can see in the video, the sauce will be thicker but shouldn’t be too chunky. I hope that helps.

      Hi Megan, yes, this recipe reheats well! You can let it come to room temperature or if you prefer this hot, you can pop it in a preheated oven at 350℉ in 10min intervals until it’s to your liking.

      November 23, 2022

      Hi Megan, the best way to make it ahead (in my opinion) would be to assemble and fully bake the pie as directed. Let it cool to room temperature then tore at room temperature overnight then serve it at room temperature or lightly warm it up in the oven if desired. If you combine the crust and apple filling ahead without baking, it will cause the crust to get soggy. Pre-making the apple filling might cause it to get brown. You can make the dough ahead of time though (see make-ahead instructions in the pie dough post). I hope that is helpful to you! Happy Thanksgiving!

    Just finished my pie and used your hashtag on Instagram! Won’t be tasting it till tomorrow but it looks gorgeous. For the crust, I didn’t have a food processor or the right standing mixer attachments so I had to mush the butter by hand with a spoon. Definitely adding some items to my Christmas wish list for next time. I accidentally preheated the oven to 450 instead of 425 for the first 15 minutes, so needless to say my pie was done a little bit faster. Luckily I was checking on it and noticed how dark it was getting so I took it out early. My only suggestion is maybe including instructions for people who may be making this completely by hand.

I was assigned the pie and I took a chance on your recipe and made first (trial) pie and it was so delicious! I think it tastes just like his and it was relatively easy.

      Hi Samantha! Did you use the recommended apples? Some apples break down more than others and it could make the filling watery. The filling will thicken as it cools. You could try adding a little more flour next time if needed. I hope that helps! I’m glad you loved the recipe. 🙂

    Hi! I’ve made this recipe twice and I’ve loved it both times. I’m planning on making two of them for a Thanksgiving potluck. If I were to make two pies, would I have to make the sauce in two batches? I know the dough would probably get overmixed/undermixed if I tried to do it as a double batch at one time, but I’m not sure if the sauce would be the same.
    Thank you in advance (and for such a delicious recipe!)

      Also, 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. You would heat it until heated through. Some ovens vary greatly; I don’t have an exact number. If I had to guess, it’d be about 15-20 minutes, but allow more time in case it’s not at your desired temp.

    Also, I really hope people stop commenting about the sugar vs water thing. You’ve responded to a million comments already about it, can people not use their heads?

    I was wondering if I can use a 10” pie pan, would I have to increase ingredients in anyway? More dough, more apples, more sauce?

      Hi there, I think that will work but feel free to increase it a bit but I think it should work without increasing anything.

    I would make this again. But next time I’d reduce the sugar a little and adjust the spice. I also squirt lemon juice on my apples while I’m slicing. I started with 14 apples for a double batch. Mostly green and some honey crisp. I used a kitchen aid to peel the apples then sliced around the cores in large chunks that I fed into the Kitchenaid slicer. I squirted 1/2 lemon per pie over the sliced apples then followed the recipe throughout. I prefer allspice or apple pie spice instead of just cinnamon. I added more and it was too much so next time I’d replace 1/3 to 1/2 the cinnamon with my homemade pie spice mix. I’ll try again on thanksgiving!

    I am sure this is the best apple pie ever, but unfortunatelly I can never have it unless you give right measers in metric. In my country the table spoons and the cups are much different then in USA. The metric link shows not good measurements. Could you please turn on your scales and measure the ingredients please?

        When you convert to metric, some of the ingredients still list in teaspoons and tablespoons instead of grams. I think that’s what Dorina is talking about.

      For example the butter requirement doesn’t change to grams when you flip to metric but it takes two seconds to google how many grams are in 8Tbs.

      Using my own scale and online conversions, these are the numbers I got from the written recipe:

      1020g peeled, cored granny smith apples (1655 ml)
      3.5g cinnamon
      112g butter
      22g all-purpose flour
      60g water
      210g granulated sugar
      1 egg + 12g water

      Hope that helps.

    I am a college student and me and my friends were craving a little home cooked dessert on a Sunday night so we decided to make an apple pie. This recipe was simple and delicious, it worked well with our limited resources and we were able to enjoy a delicious pie without a lot of hassle. We got a store bought pie crust, and used granny smith apples. This recipe really used minimal dishes and was easy to follow. Because we were cooking with limited ingredients we had to use 3/4 C sugar, and 1/4 C brown sugar which still turned out great! I will definitely be making this again:))

    Not sure if anyone else has this problem this year but my Apple pies are coming out like apple soup. No matter how much extra time baking it just seems like the apples don’t cook. I always used (for over 30 years) Cortland Apples NE NY. I think maybe it has to do with the 2 month drought we had this summer. Any suggestions?

    This is the best apple pie I’ve ever made or had! The crust was amazing, with a tender flaky bottom and crisp top. I didn’t do the lattice top because I prefer mile high apple pie and lattice is too much effort. Also used fresh apple cider instead of water and sprinkled Demerata sugar (2Tbs) on top of egg wash.
    This is my new go to apple pie recipe. Thanks for sharing it!

    This came out great. To save time, I replaced the homemade pie crust with a two Pillsbury pie crusts. I couldn’t get Granny Smith apples, so I used five honey crisps. To cut down on the sugar, I used four scoops of pure sucralose dissolved in the water of the sauce instead. To cut down on fat, I used seven tablespoons of butter in place of eight. I put a foil tent around the pie for the entire hour of baking so the dough would not burn, then removed the tent for an additional fifteen minutes of baking. Perfect.

    It was the best apple pie I ever made! Just ate a huge piece, and hubby is levitating over his. I have one suggestion, if the apples are very juicy, you may need 4 Tbsp flour in the sauce instead of 3 so it thickens enough. I used Honeycrisp. And the pie crust, oh so heavenly and flaky – I used frozen diced sticks of butter and it made it just perfect. What a great recipe!

      I prepare my crust ingredients 2 days before then chill in fridge. The day before I peel & cut up the apples & put in fridge. Then day of, I let dough warm up a bit so it can roll, add stuff to the apples, then bake. This way you aren’t going crazy trying to do everything in one day.

    I have tried this at least three times. The “sugar gravy” never works. Not one time. I’ve gone ahead and put it in the pie, but it doesn’t improve anything. Just a sticky, clumpy mess.
    And for comparison, last spring I “decided” that I could make Zeppole for St. Joseph’s day, and despite never having done so, was able to make a choux pastry perfectly and a nice yellow cream filling. So….not sure what’s not working here, but I’ve given up.

      HI Elsie, I’m glad you had good success the choux pastry. With the filling for this pie, overheating or heating for too long can cause the filling to become thick, but once it’s baked in the oven, it all melds together and will still work out. It’s still useable even if it overheats. I hope that helps.

Only complaint is i followed the video recipe and on there you said “ beat 1 egg and Tbsp Sugar together” not egg and water for the egg wash… I thought it was weird but still followed it. Big mistake bc my pie burned on the top :/ still tasted good though! Would advice you to fix the video recipe if able though!

    We loved this apple pie! Absolutely delicious! Wanted to share that because I am diabetic, I used Truvia Sweet Complete ( cup for cup sugar replacement) to make the yummy sauce. I worried at first after letting it cool, because it became like a thickened gelatin and did not pour, so I quickly thought what should i do?! I added it to my apples w cinnamon, and then put it in a 6 qt pan over low heat to see if that would bring it back to a liquid state, and kept stirring. It worked! Another tip I have it to use a variety of baking apples in the pie just like you would apple sauce- doing that makes the best sauce, so it is reasonable to think the same for apple pie! Delicious and a new family favorite! Just sharing because there may be another person trying to lower sugar. Thanks again for another great recipe! Love your videos!
