Homemade Apple Pie

I think I've mentioned it before, but I haven't been able to make a decent pie crust. I tried years ago, but when Pillsbury came out with their refrigerated pie crusts, I just gave up because they were so good I just didn't bother anymore. One of these days I'll try it again...I promise. :) This recipe is so easy to make and is delicious every time. I prefer to use the McIntosh or Cortland variety of apples as they have a softer texture and soften nicely when baking. 

Homemade Apple Pie
8-10 McIntosh or Cortland Apples, cored and peeled and sliced
1 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
2 tbsp. Brown Sugar
2 tbsp. All-Purpose Flour
1 tbsp. Butter
1 Egg, whisked
2 Pie Crusts (I used Pillsbury Refrigerated Pie Crusts)

1. Line the bottom of a pie plate with one crust. 
2. In a separate bowl, add the sliced apples, cinnamon, sugar and flour and mix well. 
3. Add the apple mixture to the pie crust, then add the butter pieces throughout the apples. 
4. Add the remaining pie crust to the top of the apples, seal the edges either by pinching them together or using the back tines of a fork and pushing down to seal the edges. 
5. Brush the egg on top of the pie crust then place in a 350 degree oven for 50-60 minutes or until the apples have softened and the crust is lightly browned. Serves 8. 



  1. What a cute pie plate! I'm taking the plunge tomorrow and will attempt my first nut crust. Otherwise it's Pillsbury for me, too!

  2. HI Carrie,

    Found your site via the Kitchen Daily Network - excited to check out some new inspiration. I have to agree with Kirsten, that pie plate is adorable and I am guessing the recipe is tasty. Nothing like homemade apple pie to warm up the house and the bellies. Denise - Chez Us
