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.

    My sauce didn’t turn out like yours. It has a more creamy color and hardened while I was doing the apples. I tried again and it was still creamy colored but I poured it hot. I measured very carefully but I did use salted butter. Could that be why?

      Hi Karyn, a little salt should be ok. I’m puzzled by why it would be “hardened” though – maybe overcooking or changes in ingredient quantities?

      Same exact thing happen to me with the sauce, Creamy color and hardened while I was doing the apples. I followed exact recipe and used unsalted butter. I didn’t bother to make new batch, just threw in the hardened sauce. lol it’s in the oven now, so we shall see how it turns out.

    So, I think I just made my first apple pie (at age 51!). Pie crust was easy to make, but I need to practice many more times so I can figure out the rolling. It’s not done baking yet, but my house smells amazing! I am getting ready to retire in a few months and I’m tying to figure out what my new hobbies will be. Baking might be one of them!

    i love apple pie. mom used gravenstein apples. i have never seen in store here in northern canada. however 1 cup of sugar is much to much to a diabetic. can the sugar be left out.

      Hi Mary, if your apples are sweet, you would probably want to cut down the sugar. I haven’t tried this without sugar or with any sugar substitutes. If you test that out, let me know how it goes since I’m sure others may have the same question.

      My grandfather has a gravenstein apple tree on the westcoast of Canada. In my opinion it is one of the best most versatile apples! I think it is heirloom variety of apple that is no longer in circulation.
      You can definitely reduce the sugar, or try monkfruit sugar.

    My grandmother made the most wonderful apple pie. After she passed away, I tried to replicate it but could never get it right. So after many failed attempts, my mission changed to finding a new Apple Pie recipe that would be my go to. I can not tell you how many recipes I’ve tried over the years. So many recipes. Some were not good at all, some were okay, but none brought the angels singing. So the search continued. Until now. I have finally found my go to Apple Pie recipe! The crust is so much buttery flaky goodness. I could seriously just eat the crust alone. The filling is perfect. Not too sweet, not too tart, the perfect amount of cinnamon. And it sets up so nicely. I’ve even started doing the lattice top, which I never did before. If you’ve also been looking for the perfect Apple Pie, try this one. It’s amazing!

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!).

    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?

    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.

      Hi Jessie, we’ve enjoyed it with in the first few hours but I haven’t tested with reheating it but I believe it should work. If you experiment, let me know how you liked the recipe.

    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! 🙂

      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’.

    AMAZING!!!! I cut the apples into cubes instead. I used half green apples and half red. I also made the sauce after I cut the apples. This recipe was the best and my family LOVED it! I used the pie crust recipe and it was perfectly flaky , ugh SO GOOD!

      Natasha this recipe is awesomesauce! I’m having difficulty with the apples, I find they still have too much bite to them. I’ve sliced them super thin, using a veg peeler and they still are not soft enough. Any suggestions on what I can do differently?
      Thank you!

    After I’ve made mini Pavlova from your recipe and it was a star!. I’ve decided to make apple pie for the first time today. I added a little bit of saltana in the filling and it really is amazing. I followed recipe to the Tee and the filling has perfect consistancy not too runny and not overly sweet. Just right amount of cinnamon. Thanks a million!!!

    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!

      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.

    Hands down best apple pie ever! Do not skip making the homemade butter crust. The crust came together in minutes in the food processor. The sauce for the apples was worth the extra step. I used Gala apples and it was fine.

    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.

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.

        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??

          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.
