Old Fashioned Apple Pie

Sharing is Caring

This Old Fashioned Apple Pie is perfectly sweetened and filled with the warm spices of Fall. It is simple to make and I have included my recipe for a buttery pie crust as well, since a good pie crust will make all the difference.

Fall’s arrival is just around the corner and as it arrives, the excitement begins. Every year I must make this recipe for Old Fashioned Apple Pie to start off the Fall season. On a breezy cool day with the leaves turning, the smell of cinnamon wafting through the house, creating a bit of magic within the home. It is a special time to be sure. A time to be cozy and warm in our homes. A time for snuggles and movies. This Old Fashioned Apple Pie recipe is perfect to make with the apple season upon us. It does capture the warm flavors of Fall.

Another excellent one to bake during apple season is this delicious Apple Cake. It is a moist and delicious loaf-style cake that uses fresh apples and cinnamon.

What You Will Need To Make This Old Fashioned Apple Pie

For the Apple Pie Filling

2 2/3 lb or 8 cups of diced apples

1 tbsp lemon juice

1/2 cup white sugar

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1 tbsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp ground ginger

4 tbsp flour

For The Crust

1 cup of salted cold butter

2 1/2 cups of all purpose flour

3-5 tbsp cold water

Directions

Dice apples into bite sized pieces. Place them into a large bowl. Sprinkle in the sugars, flour, spices and lemon juice. Using a large spoon, mix it well to incorporate. Pour the entire contents of the bowl into a waiting pie crust. Bake at 375℉/191℃ for approximately 60 minutes.

For The Crust

Using a food processor (if you don’t have one see note below), place the butter and flour inside. Remove the pour spout lid of the processor and while pulsing begin slowly adding the water until the dough comes together. Flour a surface and remove the dough from the processor and roll it out. Place the pie crust into a waiting pie dish and form the edges.

Baking Notes

  • Use a piece of parchment paper to roll the dough out on. When the dough is rolled out into circular form, pick it up by the edges of the paper, and turn the crust over into a waiting pie dish. Peel the paper away and form the pie crust edges. This makes for an easier clean-up and a simple way to place the pie crust in the dish.
  • If you do not have a food processor, you can use a fork or your hands to combine the pie crust in a large bowl. To keep the butter in a chilled state, place the dough into some plastic wrap and pop it into the fridge for a few minutes before rolling it out.
