Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 45 minutes
Total Time 55 minutes
Servings 8 slices


  • 1 single-crust pie dough
  • 1.5 lbs apples about 3 large (I used granny smith)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp packed brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 egg beaten
  • turbinado or demerara sugar for decoration (optional)
  • 2 tbsp cold butter cut into small cubes
  • vanilla ice cream for serving (optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 375° F (190° C).
  • On a floured surface, roll out your pie dough to about 12-14 inches. Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet and set aside.
  • Peel and core your apples and then cut them into bite-size chunks. Add them to a large mixing bowl.
  • To the bowl of apples, add the granulated sugar, brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Give it a good mix to coat the apples.
  • Grab your baking sheet with the pie dough and pile the apple mixture in the center of the pie dough, leaving a 2-inch border all around. Do not add any apple juices that may have accumulated at the bottom of the bowl.
  • Brush the beaten egg on the dough border and then fold the dough over the outside edges of the apples, overlapping the dough every so often.
  • Now brush the top of the folded dough crust with the egg and sprinkle on a little bit of the optional turbinado sugar all over the crust.
  • Add the butter cubes on top of the exposed apple pieces.
  • Bake for 45-50 minutes or until the apples are soft and tender and the crust is golden brown. Let it cool for 10 minutes before serving.
