  • 6 medium-sized apples (Granny Smith, Honeycrisp or Golden Delicious)
  • 3/4 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 unbaked pie crusts (homemade or store-bought)
  • 1 egg white, beaten


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Peel, core and slice the apples into thin slices. Place the sliced apples in a large mixing bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together the sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Pour this mixture over the sliced apples and stir until the apples are well coated.
  4. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Once melted, remove from heat and add in the vanilla extract. Pour the butter mixture over the apple mixture and stir until well combined.
  5. Place one of the pie crusts into a 9-inch pie dish, ensuring it is centered in the dish.
  6. Add the apple mixture to the pie dish, leveling it out so it is evenly distributed.
  7. Place the second pie crust on top of the apple mixture. Cut small slits into the top pie crust with a sharp knife to allow steam to escape.
  8. Brush the beaten egg white over the top crust, making sure to cover the edges of the pie crust as well.
  9. Place the pie dish on a baking sheet and bake for 50-60 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbly.
  10. Remove the pie from the oven and let it cool on a wire rack for at least 30 minutes.
  11. Serve the pie warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. Enjoy!
