  • 1 Recipe Single Pie Crust

For The Filling

  • 5 large apples cored. peeled and sliced into 1/4-inch thick (about 8-10 cups total) (I use a combination of Granny Smith, Pink Lady and Fuji apples)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest (optional)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

For The Crumble


To Make The Filling

  • In a large bowl, toss the apples, lemon juice, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon zest (if using), and sugar. Mix to combine. Set the filling aside while the oven preheats.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Roll out the chilled dough on a floured work surface. Roll the dough from the center to the edge, turning the dough until you have a circle of about 12 inches in diameter. Carefully place the dough in a 9 x 2 inch pie dish.
  • Spoon the filling into the crust and with a paring knife, trim the excess pie dough off the edges and crimp the edges.

To Make The Crumble

  • In a medium bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, granulated sugar and cinnamon. Using a fork, mix in the butter until crumbly.
  • Sprinkle the crumble over the apples and place the pie on a baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes, reduce the heat to 375 degrees and bake for 30 to 35 minutes. Poke the center of the pie with a skewer or a knife to make sure the apples are soft in the center/middle.
  • Remove the pie from the oven and allow it to cool for about 20 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.


  • If you notice that the pie topping is getting brown too early, place a piece of aluminum foil over the pie.
  • When baking pie, always set the pie plate on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. The baking pan will catch any spills that may occur. It also makes removing the pie from the oven a lot easier!
