Homemade Apple Pie recipe, Best Apple Pie | Jenny Can Cook (1)

Ingredients:

    Crust:

  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour (aerate before measuring)
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 cup milk (low fat or whole milk)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil (I use avocado oil)

  • Filling:

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons all-purpose flour or Minute Tapioca
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 3 pounds apples, cut into 3/4-inch thick slices (9-10 cups) – I use Granny Smith
  • [a Tablespoon of milk + a Tablespoon of sugar for topping]

Instructions:

    Crust:

  1. Preheat oven to 400° F.
  2. Combine flour, sugar, and salt in a bowl.
  3. Stir in milk & oil all at once and combine using a fork. Shape into a ball by hand.
  4. Divide dough in two. Shape each into a 5-inch disc. Wrap one in wax paper.
  5. Roll the other half between floured wax paper into a 12-inch circle and place into the ungreased pie pan. Patch where needed, trim edges, and add leftover dough to the other half.
  6. Refrigerate both while you prepare filling. (Do not put the other half of the dough inside the pie pan)
  7. Filling:

  8. Combine sugar, flour or tapioca, and spices in a large bowl.
  9. Peel, quarter & core apples. Cut into 3/4-inch slices.
  10. Stir apples into the sugar mixture and place in prepared pie pan.
  11. Roll top pastry between floured wax paper and place on top. Trim or flute edges.
  12. Brush top with milk & sprinkle with sugar, avoiding the rim of the pastry.
  13. Poke about 12 slits in the top using a sharp knife to release steam. Place on baking sheet in case of spills.
  14. Cover the rim with a pie ring or foil. Bake for 50-55 minutes until crust is golden. Cool completely (about 3 hours).

    I absolutely love, love, love this recipe. Had to increase the amount of flour for the crust to make it easier to manage. The appleness really shines here. I had some filling left, so made an apple crisp (or anything else you desire).

    Can I use extra virgin olive oil in the crust?

      I suspect that the flavor will be too strong.

      This pie 🥧 always turns out great as do her other recipes. The only recipe that I didn’t like was her sugar free waffle 🧇. Was very tasteless. Her ribs turn out great. The key is to let them marinate.for a couple of days. Not easy to put pie 🥧 dough into pie tin unless you’re an expert. But, still excellent recipe.

        Funding it hard to roll and place pie dough in the pan
        Use parchment paper instead of wax paper and flour. . To much worked in flour wrecks the crust makes it too crumbly.2 pieces of parchment top and bottom works like a charm . Once rolled out just remove top paper. Lift bottom parchment and dough place in pie plate and peel the last piece of parchment off.

        It’s the first apple pie I’ve ever made! I used 1/4 cup of sugar and added in 3/4 cup of raisins and 1/2 cup of walnuts. It turned out great!

        Made your pie today. Looked good and taste good. I have an electric stove. 400 decrees was Browning too fast, so lowered to 375. I think my crust was too thick. It came out hard. Next time I will roll it thinner and add a little less flour. I never was good at making crusts!

          Practice makes perfect and you’re right. Roll it out a little thinner. You’ll be surprised how good that it’ll turn out.

            Jenny,

            Started making the crust for this recipe and it doesn’t seem to be enough to easily make both crusts. I was looking at the recipe for your pumpkin pie recipe so I’m thinking should I just double the crust from the pumpkin pie recipe?

            Hello – Apple pie recipe lists vegetable oil and in brackets that you use avocado oil, the video shows light olive oil being used. Which would be the best choice for optimum flakiness? Please don’t say any of the three!!!

            P.s. No idea how but I accidentally stumbled upon your website and I am so glad I did!

            Thank you.

              As far as I know, the type of oil does not affect the flakiness of the crust but the mildest flavor oil is the best choice. Extra light olive oil is risky because some brands may still taste like olive oil. Canola oil is flavorless but not all brands of avocado oil are flavorless. That’s why I show the products I use in the blog. I hope this is helpful.

                Olive oil works just as well as vegetable oil and is much better for you. I used avocado oil and that was great too.

                  Incredibly delicious apple pie, Jenny! I can’t believe this pie is accidentally vegan as well. Many recipes I looked up used vegan butter, and I really wanted to find one that’s made with oil. I love how simple, quick, and vegan-friendly this recipe is. Happy thanksgiving!

                    My all time favourite pie. Hubby peels, I slice up. Wonderfully easy, no fail recipe. If you like it sweeter, add more sugar! Fall in Ontario, well you recall that Jenny, I’m sure! So brisk, so colourful! My favourite time of year!
                    Stay healthy and safe from Ontario! ??????

                      Hi Jenny, hope all is well. I made your lovely apple pie twice now and it didn’t turn out as I wanted, and both times for different reasons. First time my apples turned into apple sauce and crust was a little burned, but the rest of pie was good (maybe wrong kinds of apples or my hole on the top of pie was not big enough for steam). Second time my crust completed dried up and raised away from the apples(was this because I didn’t press the top of my dough enough onto the apples?) and way to much liquid inside the pie. please help me figure out why these things happen. Thank you Jenny, God bless and happy Halloween ? to come

                      I recently discovered your youtube videoes. I made your cinnamon rolls. They were easy to make and so yummy!
                      My question is can I freeze a raw apple pie using this pie and crust recipe?
                      Thanks.

                        I believe it would be better to cook the pie and then freeze it. I don’t think the apples would do well if you froze them without cooking them.

                          Hi Jenny my husband found this recipe and have been making it since the shut down. It’s the only crust that doesn’t give me heart burn. I tried it today for the first time( I am not competing with hubby) it was not as intimidating as I thought it was going to be. So going forward this is my pie crust. Thank you so much.

Just made your pie crust recipe BUT only needed half as making a single crust recipe. What do i do with the other half – keep in the fridge or freeze, will probably not be using it for about 1-2 weeks. Rhubarb custard pie still in oven, really wanted a healthy pie crust so here’s hoping. Thanks be

I only wish I had this recipe 50 years ago. I will never buy frozen pie shells again. Thanks Jenny for all your excellent recipes, they are so easy and healthy and uses stuff we have in the kitchen. Keep up the good work!!!

                            I made your apple pie after watching on you tube. Was so anxious to sample it, but was so disappointed with the outcome. Although the crust was nice and brown, the apples were still very crunchy. Wondered why you chunk the apples instead of slicing thin. I will not discard the recipe, but will slice apples thin next time.

                              I shouldn’t have used the word chop. I actually slice the apple quarters but I have reduced the thickness of my slices from 1-inch to 3/4 inch because in my last pie, the apples were also too firm so this time I used a ruler and can confirm that 3/4-inch slices always work for me, but “whatever way you slice it” any apple pie is a good apple pie. ?

                                I find that cooking the apples with all the ingredients before putting them in the crust makes them tender and illiminates the crust from rising away from the apples.

                                Hi Jenny, I stumbled across your recipes and have become a baking addict. The breads were awesome////// doughnuts well……..to die for and the apple pie the best I have ever made. That crust was so good. Question: in the past I have always added lemon juice to the apples but with your recipe it was not included/////any reason why you don’ add it? Just curious. Keep those recipes coming I am so hooked. Oh I made the stuffed cabbage also yummly!

                                Jenny, you are a life saver…your no knead bread is to die for! I can’t wait to take it out of the oven, slather a thick slice with butter mm..mm. I brushed the top with a little butter and it softened it making it easier to slice, because I didn’t want to wait. I told my niece Jean (in the UK) and she found you on YouTube, and so now she (also in isolation) is giving it a try. Thank you Jenny.

                                  This happened to me 2 weeks when I made 2 apple pies for my neighborhood fire station. I think the apple were not soft due to large chunks. Yesterday I made an apple pie and cut the apple into thin slices. Not paper thin but about but thin. Apples were great but my crust was horrible.

                                  It’s so odd because I’ve made this pie so many times with no issues but I had the same problem last time. (could it be the season and the apples are extra hard?) So I made one today and cut the slices a little smaller (3/4-inch) and it was perfect. I adjusted the printable recipe because undercooked apples are not acceptable and this seems to have fixed it.

                                  Thank you Ms. Jenny! Just made my first apple pie from scratch thanks to your great recipe. I’ve always served store bought pies or used pre-made crusts. Never again. This apple pie is absolutely delicious. Crust is flakey with great flavor. I’ve already shared the recipe with my sister and brought a fresh slice of apple piece over to my neighbor to enjoy. Only thing I changed was I doubled the cinnamon spice since I love cinnamon.

                                  The pie crust was tough and not flaky.

                                    Hello,
                                    The crust was tough from my experience as well. Instead I used 2 tablespoons of butter and about a little less than a 1/4 of extra light olive oil. Butter allows the crust to soften and become flaky while the olive oil still keeps it a little more healthy. If you don’t care about being healthy you could just use all butter and no olive oil. Make sure to pulse the cold butter with some of the flour in a blender for 2 seconds. This allows the butter to spread evenly and make the crust flakier.

                                      Another tip: I added an egg yoke to the milk. It helps add fat into the crust and make it more flavorful.

                                      Every time I watch you bake it is a totally enjoyable experience. Your sense of humour and casual, easy way of showing us what to do makes it so much fun to watch that I can’t wait to get baking! I noticed you baked the apple pie near the bottom of the oven. Why is the oven level where you bake a recipe never mentioned? It’s not in any recipes that I’ve ever made..except for the recipes from my mother and my sister!

                                        From my experience it’s always the center rack unless otherwise specified. My apple pie bakes on the center rack. If it looks low maybe it’s because it’s a large oven.

                                            Amazing! Changed the sugar amounts to 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/4 white sugar and a little more cinnamon! Amazing just make sure you don’t eat all of it at once ?

                                                No need to reply, Jenny.

                                                My experience with this recipe as written and my opinion is that the hydration in the recipe is too low, need one more tablespoon of oil AND milk. OR, add a beaten egg.

                                                I, also, aerated the flour before measuring BUT, the dough WAS TOUGH, and hard to handle.

                                                Hope this helps someone else trying this for the first time.

                                                I suggest that you make sure to aerate your flour before measuring; otherwise, you could be using too much flour. I make this pie crust often and it’s never dry for me. You can see a short 1-minute video on how to aerate flour in my blog. https://www.jennycancook.com/how-to-aerate-flour/

                                                Your recipe inspired me.
                                                I am gf / vegan (used my own flour blend and coconut milk).
                                                Used 1/2 of your recipe.
                                                Rolled out dough on my counter top using parchment paper. Placed shredded apples, sweetener, cinnamon & crushed walnuts on top. Rolled up the dough so it looks strudel like. Never took it off parchment paper. Slipped it on cookie sheet, baked at 400 for 30 min in convection oven. Was excellent! Thank you!

                                                I like pies but not good with crusts so ì prefer crisps, cobblers, & grunts. Do you have any on your YouTube site ?

                                                  Hi Jenny!
                                                  The pie LOOKED lovely but I don’t know where I went wrong? My husband is lactose intolerant so I substituted coconut milk in the pie crust recipe. I also used your recommendation for the 3 cup flour version. The crust turned out very hard and the pie itself was very dry. I’m so sad since this is my first try with homemade pie! Any thoughts as to where I went wrong?

                                                  hi, Could I use corn starch instead of tapioca?

                                                    Yes, you can. try to use organic corn starch if you can. 90% of American corn is GMO.

                                                    To prevent the wax paper from sliding, I sprinkle a VERY little water on the board, mostly around the edges. I’ve also had trouble with paper coming off so I peel off the top sheet, LIGHTLY pat it back on, and turn it over to peel off the bottom and use the “still attached” top sheet to lift the dough to the top of the pie..Wax paper comes off easily.

                                                    I am a 99 year old cooking for my wife. She had a stroke 2 years ago.
                                                    I love your apple pie recipes, but I might be too weak to roll out the 2.5

                                                      Hello Paul! What a thrill to know you are baking from scratch, especially apple pie which can be challenging for anyone. I did some math and came up with what I believe will work for you. I suggest using these amounts for the crust:
                                                      3 cups flour
                                                      2 Tablespoons sugar (no change)
                                                      1/2 teaspoon salt (no change)
                                                      2/3 cup milk
                                                      2/3 cup oil
                                                      Once it’s mixed, if it’s a little too soft you can always adjust with a bit more flour. Please let me know how it turns out. I also want to send my thoughts to your wife and I wish you both the best of everything, a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. I hope to hear from you on your 100th birthday!!! ❤️

                                                        Made your apple pie recipe. The filling was fine but the crust recipe just was not enough dough to go around my pie plate and to cover it properly.

                                                        Jenny, I made your recipe using your instructions and brought it to our family get together yesterday. It was beautiful to look at and was the best pie I ever tasted. Other family members whole heartedly agreed.

                                                        The pie is delicious. I love how simple the pie crust is to make and a lot healthier for you. I’m just wondering if I can make a bunch of pies and freeze them? I have a large apple tree in my backyard.

                                                          Make a couple extra and put in the freezer for a month then see how it goes.

                                                          what’s the average time you would say it has to say before you cut it?
                                                          because i let it sit for about 3 hours and it was still too watery

                                                            If it was completely cool I suspect you may have not followed the recipe exactly or your oven temperature was not hot enough.

                                                              Can i use this pie crust recipe to make cherry pie?? Do I still need to refrigerate the crust, if I use premade pie ingredients, as in canned cherry pie filling

                                                                Hi, I’ve used this pie crust recipe for cherry, peach and strawberry and it turns out amazing. Cherry and strawberry were from a can, however the peaches were fresh and I cut and peeled them, tossing them gently in cornstarch and sugar before adding. Good luck 🙂

                                                                Hi Jenny,
                                                                I love cooking but never did well with baking especially if it involved yeast until I found your recipes. They are great and you make it easy. Our favorite is the apple pie. I was wondering could I make the crust the 1or 2 days before?
                                                                Thank you for sharing all your wonderful recipes,
                                                                Stay well,

                                                                Hi Miss Can Cook,

                                                                I baked a pie with half the ingredients and it kinda cooked it. Today I am trying again, but half the cooking time (still 400 F). Wish me luck.

                                                                Hello! You inspired me to make apple pie for the first time. It turned out perfect. But the second time I made it I found that there was a lot of water in the pie once it was fully cooked and out of the oven. I had to drain the liquid from he lie after cutting the first piece. Still tasted amazing but I wonder if you could tell me what is causing this liquid to form and what I can do about it. Thanks !

                                                                Reply to this comment

                                                                  Reply to this comment

                                                                  Selina, it might be the type of apples that you used. Or maybe you forgot the tapioca?

                                                                  Reply to this comment

                                                                  Reply to this comment
