Apple Pie

So, I’ve actually made many apple pies in my lifetime, but I seem to always use a different recipe. I thought it would be great to get a recipe that I really like and keep it!

I also found this recipe on It is called Grandma Ople’s Apple pie and it got rave reviews! Of course this is the recipe I had to try! 


  • 1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 8 Granny Smith apples – peeled, cored and sliced
  • 1 egg white and sugar for crust top


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Melt the butter in a saucepan. Stir in flour to form a paste. Add water, white sugar and brown sugar, and bring to a boil. Reduce temperature and let simmer.
  2. Place the bottom crust in your pan. Fill with apples, mounded slightly. Gently pour the sugar and butter liquid over the apples. Pour slowly so that it does not run off. Cover with top crust. Brush the crust with egg white and sprinkle with sugar.
  3. Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Continue baking for 35 to 45 minutes, until apples are soft.

The original recipe called for a lattice top crust and pouring the sugar mixture over the top. I wasn’t feeling quite motivated to hassle with a lattice crust, so I made a few alterations!

This pie turned out great! We had our dear friends, Colt and Lindy, over and they seemed to love it as well!  It didn’t even last 2 days in my house!

I’ll give this recipe a 10/10.
