Apple Pie - Old-Fashioned

Updated: Dec 16, 2022


  • 6 to 7 cups thinly sliced peeled apples. (I use Granny Smith & Macintosh)

  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar

  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice.

  • Your favorite pie crust recipe! (I use my Nana’s form in the pie plate recipe – no rolling out necessary)


  1. In a small bowl, combine the sugar, flour, and spices; set aside. In a large bowl, toss apples with lemon juice. Add the sugar mixture; toss to coat.

  2. Line a 9-in. pie plate with bottom crust. Fill with the apple mixture. Place the cut-out pieces of the crust on top.

  3. Place foil over the edges of the pie crust. (to prevent getting too browned)

  4. Bake at 375° for 25 minutes (then remove foil) and bake an additional 20-25 minutes until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cool on a wire rack.
