Ingredients List for Your Pie:

Puff Pastry: The easiest way for this ingredient is go pre made. You can find frozen puff pastry sheets in the freezer section in your local grocery store. You can also make homemade puff pastry dough. To be honest, I’ve never attempted to make it, but, do know, that it is time consuming.

If you wish to give it a try, here is a recipe for homemade puff pastry. Just to note: I haven’t tried this recipe. If you do, please let me know how it worked for you.

Apples: Chopped & peeled. A few varieties that work well in apple pie- – granny smith, jazz, pink lady golden delicious & jonagold. You are looking for an apple that is firm and tart. Yes, you can use a combination of different types!

Sugar + Vanilla+ Water

Cornstarch + Ground cinnamon

Cinnamon Sugar: This is an optional topping to sprinkle on top. Simply mix approx 1/4 cup white sugar with 1 tsp of ground cinnamon to make.

Egg wash: Whisk together one egg with about a tablespoon of water.

A few recipe notes:

  • When making your filling, keep a close eye on it. It should only take about 5-8 minutes for it to thicken, but, will burn quickly!
  • Your filling will seem a little messy when the pie is still warm. But, it will thicken up as it cools.
  • Optional: Whipped cream for garnish. Make it homemade! It’s really easy and will save you a little money. You can also topped with caramel sauce or vanilla ice cream

Happy Fall 🍎

    Erin, you really know how to explain your recipes and I so appreciate that. You’re right. I did make my own puff pastry (Julia Child) a couple of times and it was amazing BUT time is a consideration.
    Keep up the amazing work…I’ll be following you.

  2. I have been looking for a “really good” Apple pie recipe. By golly, I have found yours. Simply delicious! I did add 3 teaspoons of fresh lemon juice. ( I was juicing some before hand) I like my pie with a little tartness. But other than that, I followed yours to the letter. Yummy yum yum ! This will be my go to for Apple pie from now on.

    1. So glad it was enjoyed RD! Thanks for letting me know!

    2. @Erin, Hi there. I thought I had made a mistake when I purchased puff pastry dough instead of pie dough… this is how I found your recipe. I missed big step of cooking apples first….It’s in the oven now and I covered it with foil and turned heat down to 350 after cooking for 15 minutes and reading the full recipe. I hope the foil will keep pastry from getting too dark and apples to fully cook. I’ll let you know how it turns out. 🙏praying. It’s for Thanksgiving dessert and nothing is open today.😩

      1. Hi Lupe- -Hope the pie worked out for you and I’m glad you were able to find us for your pie emergency 🙂

    Made this for Thanksgiving and it was devoured. It came out looking beautiful without needing foil – just the right amount of crusty color! I had to do a lot of rolling out to get the rectangular puff pastry sheet to be large enough, and I do think it made the crust tougher than puff pastry should be. Is there a technique that I missed? Would appreciate advice! Thanks! This apple pie will definitely be at the top of my list of pies!

  4. I have been looking around for ages to find a great puff pastry apple pie recipe, other pastries are too doughy . This was wonderful , it will be on top of my go to list for pies . Thank you so much .
