Fresh Baked Apple Pie

How to make Fresh Baked Apple Pie

Our apple pie recipe is a year-round favorite. Once intimidating, now I find making pies enjoyable. With less butter and sugar than most, this recipe strikes the right balance. Make sure you serve your pie with vanilla ice cream. It elevates the warm pie to another indulgent level. Enjoy!



8 servings

  • 3 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 5 honey crisp apples (peeled and sliced)
  • 3/4 c dark brown sugar
  • 3 Tablespoon flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 c water
  • 2 pie crusts


  1. Melt butter over low-medium heat.
  2. Mix in sugar.
  3. Add flour, vanilla, and cinnamon.
  4. Then add water and mix together.
  5. Place apples in pan and coat evenly.
  6. Cook apples on low-medium heat until tender (8-10 minutes).
  7. Lightly coat pie plate with no-stick spray and place a pie crust inside pressing dough along the sides and rim.
  8. Pour the apples into the pie crust, then cover them with the second crust. For a lattice design, you can use a pizza cutter.
  9. Bake at 400°F on the middle rack for 40-45 minutes or until the crust is golden, and the apples are bubbling. If the crust is browning too quickly, particularly along the edges, cover with foil midway through baking.
