Ingredients

For the pie crust

  • 2 1/3 Cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 Teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 4 4/5 Cups unsalted butter, shredded
  • 4 Tablespoons ice water

For the pie

  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tablespoon heavy cream
  • 5 1/2 Granny Smith or Golden Delicious apples, seeded and chopped
  • 3/4 Cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon all-purpose flour, plus more for rolling the dough
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 3/4 Teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 Tablespoon unsalted butter, shredded

Directions

For the pie crust

Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl. Add the butter and toss until fully coated with the dry ingredients. Using an electric mixer with the paddle attachment, mix on low speed. Add the water in a steady, slow stream. Watch the dough continuously and turn off the mixer right when no crumbs remain at the bottom of the bowl. Handle the dough gently and keep cold. Let rest for 1 hour before baking.

For the pie

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

In a bowl, whisk together the egg and cream to make the egg wash. In another bowl, toss the apples with the sugar, flour, lemon juice, and cinnamon. Lightly flour a work surface and rolling pin and roll out the dough to the desired thickness. Transfer to a 9-inch pie plate and use the excess dough to create the lattice.

Put the apple mixture into the dough-lined pie dish. Top with the shredded butter and layer the lattice on top. Brush the top with the egg wash. Bake for 25 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 325 degrees and continue baking until the pie bubbles and is very golden in color, about 25 minutes.

Apple Pie Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Apple Pie Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
