  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 4 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 6-7 cups thinly sliced peeled apples I like to use a variety of tart & sweet - Granny Smith, Pink Lady, Cortland and Honey Crisp
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • Pastry for double-crust pie 9 inches
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • egg wash for brushing on crust
  • coarse sugar for sprinkling


  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF.
  2. Combine the granulated sugar, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves together in a medium bowl.
  3. Place the apple slices in a large mixing bowl and drizzle with lemon juice. Toss with the dry ingredients and mix to coat.
  4. Carefully drape your rolled out pie crust over a standard 9" pie pan - using a rolling pin to help transfer. Leave the edges hanging over and trim any excess pieces.
  5. Using a slotted spoon, fill the pie pan with apple mixture, making a pile and packing down tightly. (do not add excess juices from the bowl).
  6. Dot with butter and place the second rolled out pie crust on top (you can make a lattice top or simply cut slits to vent the steam). Trim, seal and flute edges.
  7. Brush with egg wash and sprinkle with coarse sugar. Cover edges loosely with foil.
  8. Place the pie pan on a baking sheet and bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Turn oven down to 350 F and remove foil. Bake for an additional 30-40 minutes, or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly. If the top of your pie is getting too brown, cover with foil again. Cool on a wire rack.
