  • 2 premade dough sheets 
  • ¼ cup flour
  • ⅓-⅔ cup sugar
  • 8-9 peeled thinly sliced apples
  • ½ tsp of cinnamon 
  • ½ tsp of nutmeg 
  • 2 tbsp of butter 
  • A pinch of salt  


  1. The first thing to do when making apple pie is to preheat the oven to 425 degrees. 
  2. While the oven is preheating, combine ¼ cup of flour, ⅓ – ⅔ cup of sugar, ½ tsp of cinnamon, ½ tsp of nutmeg, and a pinch of salt. 
  3. Now it’s time to mix the ingredients together until combined thoroughly. 
  4. Once everything is mixed in it is time to add 2 tbsp of butter, it can either be solid or melted, and mix. 
  5. Once the consistency looks moist and has a dark brown color to it, it is time to add 8-9 peeled thinly sliced granny smith apples. 
  6. After all the apples are evenly coated it is time to put the apple mixture into the pie crust. The pie crust is just one premade dough sheet covering a round baking tin. 
  7. Once the apples are evenly spread then it is time to add the second premade dough sheet on top. 
  8. After the dough sheet is on top, cut a few little X’s in the dough and cover with tin foil. 
  9. Once the tin foil is on top, put the pie into the oven for 40-50 minutes. 
  10. Lastly, once it has been 40-50 minutes it is time to take the pie out of the oven and serve. The apple pie can be served by itself or with some vanilla ice cream. 

I like apple pie the most because I love the taste of the apples and like the texture and consistency of them. I also like that apple pie can go with anything and be eaten year round, where as pumpkin pie is more of a seasonal pie. I dislike pumpkin pie because of the consistency has a gooey texture.
