    It’s a bold statement to say you have THE BEST of anything when it comes to recipes, but I’m pretty confident that this recipe is one of the best, if not #1. It was part of my “Friendsgiving” event about a month ago.

    I asked my closest friends to bring me their star dish from the holidays. My neighbor Giovanna, a fellow foodie, brought over her classic Apple Pie. It was pretty amazing and darn pretty too!

    What are the keys to a magnificent apple pie? Well, first of all, let’s clarify this one is traditional, not Amish or sour cream or any of the other varieties. It is absolutely a classic take on apple pie.

    Pie Crust is one of the few things I feel is better bought than made from scratch. Although easy enough, it can be very challenging to get the right pliability and consistency to create a beautiful crust.

    Now, you can choose to make your own if you are feeling adventurous, but if not, it is just as easy to get a frozen pie crust from your local grocery store and sometimes even your local bakery.

    The presentation is the last element to the BEST Apple Pie. Use a small leaf cookie cutter and layer over the top. A light egg wash will create dimension and color to really make your pie pop.

    Course: Dessert
    Cuisine: American
    Keyword: best apple pie, homemade apple pie recipe
    Servings: 8
    Calories: 318 kcal
    Ingredients
    • 1 package refrigerated pie crusts (2 crusts)
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 1/4 cup flour
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons Apple Pie Spice
    • 3 lbs Granny Smith Apples cored, peeled and thinly sliced
    • 1 tablespoon butter
    • 1 egg beaten
    • Fall leaf pie crust cutters
    • Vanilla Bean Ice Cream for serving
    Instructions
    1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a 9-inch pie plate with one of the prepared pie crusts. Press on the bottom and sides of crust with a fork to remove any air bubbles.
    2. Add apples to a large bowl. Mix sugar, flour and apple pie spice in a small bowl, then sprinkle over apples and toss to coat well. Pour mixture into the prepared pie plate, then dot with butter.
    3. Using pie crust cutters, cut a variety of different size leaves out of the remaining pie crust. I took my leaves and lined them around the top in a circle, spiraling in towards the center, but feel free to be creative and place them as you like! The most important thing is to cover the entire top of the apples with pie crust leaves. Once the leaves are in place, brush with a beaten egg and sprinkle with additional sugar, if desired.
    4. Bake 45 minutes or until crust leaves are golden brown and the filling is bubbling. Cool before serving as is or with vanilla ice cream.
