Granny Smith Apple Pie

READY IN: 2hrs 25mins




  • Preheat oven to 425°; line a 9-inch pie plate with 1 rolled-out crust.
  • Put the apples in a large bowl, add the lemon juice, and toss to coat.
  • Separately, combine the sugar, flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg, mix thoroughly, then add to the apples.
  • Gently stir until the apples are thoroughly coated, then spoon the mixture evenly into the crust.
  • Dot the top with the butter.
  • Brush the rim of the crust with water, cover with the second rolled-out crust, seal and flute or crimp the edges, and cut a few steam vents in the top.
  • Make the glaze-mix the warm milk with the sugar.
  • Brush the glaze over the top crust.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, then lower the oven temperature to 350° and bake another 30-40 minutes, until the crust is golden brown and the fruit is tender.
  • Check the pie about halfway through the baking time, and place pie crust shield over pie crust edges (if getting too brown).
  • Cool on a wire rack for 1-2 hours before slicing.
  • Serve at room temperature or slightly warm.
