Apple pie has inspired so many of my recipes like apple pie roll ups, apple pie bread and apple pie cupcakes. Now it’s time to give you guys the perfect classic apple pie recipe. 

What Kind of Apples for Apple Pie?

With an apple pie recipe, you want apples that are tart, sweet, and firm. You want the apples to be strong enough not to break down completely while you bake the apple pie, but light enough that they are soft when they bake. Below are our favorite apples to use in apple pie!

  • Granny Smith – Tart, green, flavorful, and perfect for apple pie
  • Golden Delicious – Softer, sweet, and yellow in color
  • Northern Spy – Red and green, honey notes, and on the sweet side
  • Idared – Red in color, not too harsh in flavor, on the tart side

How To Make Apple Pie

To make a classic apple pie recipe, begin with a double pie crust.

Rolling Pie Crust: If you made homemade crust, roll it to ⅛” thickness (I roll them bottom out to about 12″ circles) and line a 9″ pie plate. Set aside.

How to Make Apple Pie Filling

Prep Apples

  • To make apple pie filling, thinly slice, core and peel apples. I slice them between 1/4″-1/8″ thick thinner slices soften more.
  • Apple peels tend to get chewy when cooked it’s always best to peel the apples first.
  • Toss all of the apple pie ingredients together. In this apple pie filling, the addition of a bit of flour helps to absorb the liquids that the apples release when they bake.

Unlike strawberry rhubarb pie or blueberry pie, you don’t need to worry about adding tapioca other thickening ingredients as apples don’t release a ton of juices like a berry does. Turn the apple pie filling into the pie crust.

If you are making a lattice pie crust, now is your time to shine!  If you are just using a flat piece of pie dough as a topping, roll it out to ⅛” thickness and place it over the apple pie. Crimp and trim the edges, and slice some slits into the crust to allow steam to escape while the apple pie cooks.

How Long to Bake Apple Pie

Start the apple pie at a higher temperature to keep the crust from getting soggy. Depending on your apples, the pie can sometimes bubble over so I always place it on a pan lined with parchment to save my oven any mess.

Bake apple pie at 425°F for 15 minutes and then reduce the heat to 375 for an additional 35-40 minutes or until the apples are tender and the pie crust is golden.

If the outer crust starts to brown too much, cover the edges with foil or a pie crust shield.

Does Apple Pie Need to be Refrigerated?

Allow the apple pie to cool slightly before serving. This also ensure you won’t end up with a liquidy pie. Serve it warm with ice cream and enjoy!

Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator or on the counter for up to 2 days.
