Classic American apple pie recipe like grandma use to make with tender warm apples in a sweet flaky pie crust. The perfect holiday dessert!


  • 1 Frozen pie dish (deep dish)
  • 1 Pie crust for topping
  • 1 1/4 lbs honey crisp apples (cored, sliced, peeled)
  • 1 1/4 lbs granny smith apples (cored, sliced, peeled)
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg (beaten)
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tub vanilla ice cream


  • Preheat oven to 375F. Take frozen pie crusts from the freezer and allow to thaw in the fridge.
  • In a large bowl, combine the sliced apples, sugar, flour, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice, lemon zest, and vanilla extract. Mix until all apple slices are coated in the mixture.
  • Once pie crust is thawed, use a fork to poke holes in the bottom of the crust. Fill the crust with the apple filling. Place pie crust on top and press the fork down along the edge of the bottom crust to seal. Brush the pie with the egg wash and sprinkle with the tablespoon of sugar. Cut four slits into the top of the pie to create a vent.
  • Bake the pie for 50-60 minutes until the crust is golden brown. Allow to cool before slicing, top with vanilla ice cream and serve.
