Homemade appel pie recipe

Apple pie

  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 8 portions


This delicious apple pie is the Apple Pie, a sweet dough and a mixture of caramelized apples (6-8 parts for a 9 inch /23 cm diameter pan).


Apple cinamon filling

  • 6 Apple (Royal Gala, Pink lady, etc..)
  • 3 tbsp Sugar
  • 1/2 lemon juice
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract (liquid )

Sweet dough

  • 375 g Flour (All purpose)
  • 50 g Sugar
  • 2 pinch salt
  • 250 g butter (cold or iced)
  • 80 ml Water (cold)


Make the apple filling

  1. Peel and chop the apples.
  2. Place all ingredients in a medium saucepan, chopped apples, lemon juice, powdered sugar, cinnamon and vanilla.
  3. Heat the pan over medium heat for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally until the apples are softened but still a little firm.
  4. Let the apple filling cool completely.

Make the pie crust

  1. Place the dry ingredients, flour, powdered sugar and salt in your food processor and mix for 30 seconds.
  2. Add the very cold butter cut into pieces to the blender and mix at maximum speed for 1 minute. Until you get a sandy mixture.
  3. Add the water and mix again at high speed for another minute until you get a not very homogeneous dough with still some pieces of butter visible.

Assembly the apple pie

  1. Place the dough on a floured work surface and roll it out into 2 discs large enough to cover your pie dish. Place one of the 2 discs in the fridge while you prepare the pie.
  2. Cover the inside of your pie dish with the disc of dough, it should fall over the edges.
  3. Fill the inside of the dish with the cooled apple mixture.
  4. Remove the second disc from the fridge and cut long strips of dough with a pizza cutter (or you can simply cover the pie with the disc of dough without cutting it)
  5. Decorate by making a lattice (see photos or video).
  6. Cut out the excess strips and fold over the edges and pinch with your fingers to form a nice border.
  7. Place your apple pie in the freezer for 30 minutes before baking.

Baking the Apple pie

  1. Preheat the oven to 392°F / 200 °C and prepare a baking sheet.
  2. Apply a layer of gilding with a brush on the top of the pie by mixing in a small bowl an egg with 1 tablespoon of milk
  3. Lower the oven to 350°F/ 180°C and bake the pie for 1 hour until it is golden brown on top.
  4. Let the pie cool completely before covering and placing in the refrigerator.
