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.

    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.

      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?

    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.

    • Natasha
      January 21, 2021

      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.

    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

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😊

    Thank you for the recipe. I made it but I found some discrepancies in the measurements. I used measuring cups and kitchen scale to be accurate but still the outcome was not as I expect it (like your apple pie).
    For example, the dough didn’t need was, 3 tbsp for the sauce was a lot and the filling taste it flour. I wish I did it without the filling sauce.
    Overall it was not bad but as I said it is below my expectations.

      Hi Ahlam, the measurements are correct and this is normally a very popular recipe – make sure to make the sauce over the stovetop as mixing the flour without cooking off the flour taste would make the filling taste like flour. I’ve never noticed a flour taste otherwise especially with the lengthy baking time in the oven. I hope that helps to troubleshoot.

    I’m not a full fledged baker or cook. I followed Natasha’s apple Pie recipe. ( never made pie crust before). It turned out soooooo good, flaky crust, firm apples, pieces stayed together when cut. Did not have a food processor so I mixed by hand with my grandmas dough mixer. excellent! thanks natasha

    I’d like to make this in a cast iron pan. What temp do you suggest and for how long? Cast iron will hold the heat longer, correct?

      Hi Shubhda! I haven’t tried making just the filling ahead but 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.

    Hi Natasha,
    So on your recipe you mention to use one egg and a tbsp of water for the egg wash but on the video you used one egg and a tbsp of sugar. Which one is it? I made this pie for thanksgiving and everyone loved it. I followed your video. Today I made it for the second time and followed the written recipe with the egg and water wash and I’m afraid it won’t taste the same. I’m giving this second one as a gift for my friend. Please can you clarify which one is right. Thank you.

    Your Apple pie looks great, going to try it. Question, in your video right before baking you say to beat 1 egg and 1 Tbsp of sugar apply to top of pie crust for egg wash. Reading the ingredients it states egg and Tbsp of water, should be sugar here correct?

    Made the famous apple pie! My boyfriend isn’t even a huge fan of apple pie and he took seconds and thirds!
    Flaky, flaky crust that was to die for and cooked perfectly at the recipe time. I have used Natashas pie crust before but I found that it was extra perfect with this pie. I did only use half the sugar in the sauce though and I still found it a little sweet so I will use 1/3 cup next time. I realize that makes it less caramel-y but I just don’t enjoy overly sweet anything so it’s just a personal preference.
    I also cut thin slices of the apples and then halved them as i prefer smaller pieces. The only other thing I tweaked was putting the cinnamon in the sauce as it was cooling – I didn’t see the point of coating the apples with the cinnamon and then the sauce. Absolutely delicious and will definitely make again!

        Just as an update and for anyone else that is trying to cut sugar…I cut it to a third cup in the sauce this time around and it did not work. I redid the sauce 3 times and it just kept separating. The last time I cooked it anyway and even though the sauce came together in the oven and the taste was good the crust got hard on the bottom, probably from the separated liquids. Also, I felt the flavor was not as good as last time so I would recommend to go no less that 1/2 cup sugar.

    First time baking a pie ever. It was great! The only thing I noticed is that in the video you said ‘mix one egg with one tbsp of sugar” but on the website it mentions one egg with tbsp of water. I ended up using the video as I was making it so I used the sugar. Also, I think I used a small pan or too many apples bc the liquid overflowed and spilled in the oven. No biggie. For my first pie, I think it was pretty amazing! Especially when you slap vanilla Ice cream on top. Thank you! I just subscribed! 🙂

    Novice baker here, this apple pie filling was a huge success! I can’t speak for the pie crust, as I used a frozen store bought one for ease (maybe will try homemade next time!). It was a HIT at our small family Thanksgiving…my boyfriend and I had to make another one a few days later because we were craving it and there wasn’t any left over.

    We mixed Granny Smith and Honeycrisp apples and used just a LITTLE bit less sugar in the sauce, but my family tends to like things a little less sweet.

    Thanks for the great, easy, delicious recipe!

    Made this for Thanksgiving. Flavor and crust were excellent. I will always use this pie crust going forward. My only complaint was there was a lot of free liquid at the bottom of the pie when I cut into it. I used 3 granny smith apples and 2 braeburn apples. I measured every ingredient and am not sure why there was the liquid at the bottom. It was still very good.

      Hi David, make sure to let the pie rest and cool before cutting into it to give the juices a chance to thicken up and turn saucy, otherwise the slices will slide apart and be difficult to serve.

    I really wanted to love this and I was so excited to make it. I watched the video multiple times, wrote out the recipe and followed it exactly. Unfortunately, I got a horrible, soaking mess. I have made apple pie before and would toss my apples in sugar before adding to the crust so they would release some of their water. Against my better judgment, I trusted this recipe and went forward without doing so. After the pie had cooked over and hour, I noticed liquid around the rim of the pie. To my surprise, I extracted 1 cup of liquid from my pie with an eyedropper!! (I have pics for proof) I am not a novice baker and I really wanted this recipe to work out. It ended up being a waste of 4 hours and a disappointment as my TG dessert. I also found the pie crust made only 1.5 rounds (although I may have rolled mine too thick). I also needed close to 9 tbsp of water to get it to even possibly hold together in a ball, and there were way too many apples for the amount of sauce. If I were to redo this, I’d dessicate the apples and use that juice in addition to the sauce. I’d probably also increase the sauce recipe by at least 1.5 times the original recipe. I also think it was too sour, so I’d up the sugar by 1.5 times as well. I think this has potential ultimately but needs some modifications. I like the idea of the sauce though. Hope this helps someone.

      Hi, I’m sorry to hear that. This is a very popular recipe on our site. I am always happy to help troubleshoot. I’ve never had to extract liquid from my pies before and the liquid that does form helps to bake the apples to the right tenderness and forms that desirable saucy consistency in the cooled pie. I wonder if maybe the pie dish was too small for the number of apples or too many apples were used? Check the link above for the type of pan we used. I hope that helps for next time.

      November 27, 2020

      Hi Barang, make sure to pat down the apples a little bit before putting on the top crust – otherwise if you have any big gaps of air between the layers, it can cause gaps when the apples soften and settle down. Using a pie pan, butter should have stayed in the pan. Maybe try using a larger pie pan if you were seeing any drips over the top of the pan. I hope that helps for next time.

      Unfortunately, I had the same issue. I used the Granny Smith apples. After serving it to my husband. He and I both agreed the apples were under cooked. I place the pie back in the oven at 350 degrees for an additional 45 minutes. The pie was finally fully cooked. I followed the recipe to the letter. The cooking time inadequate. The pie lacked the sweetness as I’m accustomed to in other recipes.

    Hi Natasha! I made this pie, with your delicious crust recipe, the other night with my young niece and nephew. We had a blast and the pie came out delicious! It was my first time making a crust, and can’t wait to do it again tomorrow. I felt accomplished! haha. Thank you for sharing, being thorough, and answering as many questions as possible for all who comment. You are appreciated!! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family!!

      I just made my second Apple pie from scratch from your recipe. My wife and I both had a small piece of my first one before I went to bed. The next morning there was a small piece plus half of the pie left, so I are the small piece before leaving the home for the day. Up on my return home that evening only to lean that the pie was gone. We had no visitors that day, my wife was the only person there and our house is mouse proof, so it isn’t to difficult to figure what happened to the whole one half of the pie. That certainly verifies the goodness of the pie and a great testament of your recipe, it is GREAT!!!! I could use some help in making the crust. I end up with a big mess and can’t roll it out nor remove it to the pie bish.

        I’m so happy you both enjoyed this recipe, Doug! I would refrigerate the pie dough and then let it rest at room temp for a bit just until it’s easier to roll out, but definitely refrigerate if not using right away.

      Hi Regina, that should work as long as the pie pan has good depth, otherwise the filling would overwhelm a short pie pan. See the one we linked in the post above for sizing reference.

        Hi Natasha! Happy Thanksgiving! I’m making your apple pie and using your crust this time! (I cheated last time and bought a pre made crust). I noticed that in the video for the crust, you mention using an egg and sugar for the egg wash, but in the written directions, it says to use egg and water. Does either work?

    Hi Natasha!! I made this pie last week as a test run for thanksgiving for my family – it was a HIT! My elderly parents requested a pie with less sugar and I tried making the filling today with less sugar (1/4 cup) and less flour (1tbsp)..but the filling came out goopy and looked separated from the butter. What do you recommend I do if I would like the stove-top filling to be less sweet? Thank you!

    • Natasha
      November 25, 2020

      Hi Suzzy, if you’ve already made the filling and it seems too sweet or if you are using sweeter apples and want to tone down the sweetness, I suggest tossing the apples in a little lemon juice to balance the sweetness.

    Would it be alright if I thinly sliced the apples and then diced the slices in this recipe. I always like to dice my apples because they usually cook about the same and it’s a little easier to eat. I wanted to try a new recipe for Thanksgiving this year but I don’t want to mess it up.

    Hi Natacha, this is my third time making this pie and my oh my is it delicious. I have a question, though. The first time I made the filling it came out perfect. But the second and third time, after I let the filling cool it becomes very crumbly and is difficult to mix with the apples. I am not sure what I am doing wrong. Any tips or tricks? Thanks!

      Hi Desiree, that can happen if you put warm filling on cold apples but not to worry – it will turn out beautifully after it bakes. That has happened to me before and it’s nothing to worry about.

    Hi Natasha,

    Just made your recipe. I made the sauce, it came out fine, however, i put it asside to cut up the apples and when it came time to mix in the sauce it was hard. i attempted to reheat it, but it appeared to separate. What did I wrong?

    • Natasha
      November 25, 2020

      Hi Alyssa, it may affect the bake time slightly and you may end up with a little darker crust but the center still needs the same amount of time to soften the apples and thicken the filling adequately. As I wrote above, “Pectin breaks down and softens the apples at 175˚ so you want your pie filling to reach 175˚F.”

    Hi Natasha! My wife and I made this pie a few weeks ago and it came out great and looked delicious. We made it again today and as it baked the filling got very wet/juicy and it came out the top and sides of the pie. We’re not sure what we did wrong. The only thing different we did was cover the edge of the pie with a silicone pie protector with 15 minutes left to bake. Could the pie protector have caused it?

    • Natasha
      November 24, 2020

      Hi, the pie protector should not have caused that. My guess is that there were apples used in the pie which would cause it to bubble through the top and drip.

      I also just made this and the filling oozed out the top and over the sides of the dish during the last 15 minutes of baking. Thinking maybe my crust wasn’t tall enough, but any other thoughts? Other than that it was DELICIOUS!!

      Hi Carolina, I made this with a sweeter apple one year and cut the sugar in half. If using half of each, you might cut down the sugar by 1/4 cup or 1/3 cup.
