We had a few kids from Rocky Mountain college football team coming over and I wanted them to have some real home cooked food. I blinked and it was gone! Seriously, the most delicious and perfect from crust to crust. Thank you for elevating my game! I jenn Question If i want to make this pie can i make just Blueberries if is yes how much?
Thanks again. I will come back after I serve it tonight and let you know the results. It looks pretty good, but I do have a couple of burned fingers trying to add the top crust. We will see!
Update: Guests were very happy with the pie. One problem I had is the juice seeped under the bottom crust. It was difficult to remove, even after soaking the dish.
My fault, there must have been a hole in the crust and I missed it. I made this today. I used my LeCreuset pie bird funnel — it was a beautiful presentation. I also made homemade ice cream with my Cuisinart ice cream maker- yes, I cooked all day!
The crust is flaky and delicious! This will be my go-to apple pie recipe. Thanks for sharing.
I served this pie for a family birthday dinner. My son said no cake this year, I want pie! I have used your website before, and your recipes are great. The apple pie got 6 stars!
A little more labor, but worth it! This is a great pie, I had previously been frustrated with runny pie filling and have taken to cooking the fillings prior to loading the crust. Your recommendation of cooking the crust has also made a big difference, thank you. This is a great recipe.
The instructions and pictures are helpful to have the perfect apple pie. Dear Jenn, Thank you so much! You have inspired me to become a baker.
I have been using a packaged pie cust crust. Not pre-made but the mix already done. I have been pleased with the results. Being a glutton for punishment, I decided to give your crust a try. I shared it with my parents and we were all drooling with joy! I have now made 4 of your desserts and all have been outstanding. Lemon pound cake, lemon tarts, warm lemon pudding cakes, and this apple pie! Thanks, Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukah!

Hi Jenn Love all your recipes! Could you tell me the food processor you use pictured in your Apple pie recipe?
I need to get one and that looks like a good one. Hi Donna, So glad you are enjoying the recipes! I use a cup Cuisinart food processor and am very happy with it. The result was so perfect, taste and looks wise, that one of my friends commented that she never saw anything like this in real life, just in cook books. It made me look so good. This did take me a lot of time to make, even though I used this little gadget that peels, cores and cuts apples.
It also caused quite a mess in my kitchen. But the result was nothing short of spectacular and the crust was superb. I let the apples drain for over an hour. Kept a very close eye on the syrup as it reduced, especially towards the end. Hi Jenn, does the 1. I have an excess of apples in my fridge and would like to give this recipe a try! Hi Malak, the 1. This is the best apple pie recipe! Your other recipes have encouraged me to try my hat at baking. Merry Christmas and best wishes for the New Year!!!!
Conquering the problem of hollow crusted pies, collapsed pie crusts, over or under cooked crusts and apple pies that are too sweet has always been the benchmark of perfecting an Apple Pie. This recipe finally meets all the criteria and allows me to present my family and friends with the most perfect pie they could ever want.
Thanks Jenn!! This was was first thanksgiving since my Mother passed. I made this pie and everyone said it was the best pie even as good as hers.
I made this for Thanksgiving, and everyone thought it was the best apple pie! Thank you so much for the yummy recipe, I will be using it as my go to apple pie recipe!
You are the reason I got through Thanksgiving! I find myself turning to your blog over and over for techniques advice etc! I so grateful for all the experience and knowledge you share with us home cooks! Followed the apple pie recipe and it turned out delicious! Were you measuring apples prior to coring and peeling? It is really beautiful and I baked a little piece of the crust separately, it was flaky and nice. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe! I want to make this for dessert for tomorrow and I saw i can prepare it the night before and just leave it out. Do you suggest wrapping it up tight?
