There is no pie more classic or more beloved than the Traditional Apple Pie. For a guaranteed hit, this is the pie for you!

What You'll Need:
  • 8 baking apples, peeled, cored, and cut into thick slices (see Note)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon quick-cooking tapioca
  • 1 pie crust
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together all ingredients except pie crust; toss to coat apples well. Pour apple mixture into pie shell; place second piece of dough over filling, as directed; seal by pinching edges together.
  3. Using a sharp paring knife, cut 6 small slits in center of pie top to allow steam to escape while baking.
  4. Bake 40 to 45 minutes, or until filling is bubbling and crust is golden.
  • You can cut the apples thinner or thicker depending on your preference.
  • For a golden top that looks truly old-fashioned, brush the top crust with 2 teaspoons milk and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon sugar before baking.
