Homemade Apple Pie Recipes

There’s a reason they call it “As American As Apple Pie”. We have certainly perfected this simple little treat over the years. Below you will find two of my favorite homemade apple pie recipes. The first is a little more involved (but certainly well worth the little extra effort), while the second recipe is easy enough even for a weekday treat.

Homemade Apple PieA freshly baked apple pie with a crumbly topping described in the recipe

  • 6 granny smith apples
  • 1 nine inch pie crust
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Topping:
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 6 tbsp very cold butter

Peel and core all of the granny smith apples. Slice apples thin and place them into the pie shell and set aside.
Combine sugar and flour. Cut butter into small pieces and add to dry mix until crumbley. Place on top of the pie and bake at 400 degrees for 40 minutes.


Super Easy Apple Pie:Freshly baked apple pie, shown here baked in a cast iron skillet, but could also be baked in a regular pie tin.

  • 6 tart apples (granny smiths work well)
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ready made pie crust

Peel and core apples. Mix together sugar and cinnamon. Place apples into pie crust and sprinkle with sugar mixture and butter. Add top crust and cut a slit to ventilate. Bake at 450 degrees for 45 minutes.
