This Blue Ribbon Apple Pie is an award-winning and AMAZING recipe! I make it every holiday and still get rave reviews on it each time. I love apple pie so much I make it in several different ways that I think you would just love!
Homemade Pie Crust:
For this recipe, you will need two pie crust. One for the bottom and one for the top. If you are buying a store bought crust they usually come with two in a box. If you want to make a homemade recipe I have one that will make two crust so you only need to make the recipe as is. My recipe is really simple and only takes a few ingredients.
This recipe is so simple to make I promise you can do it. You can find the full recipe here, Homemade Pie Crust.
Blue Ribbon Apple Pie:
Step one: Start by preheating your oven and preparing your crust. When the crust is ready you want to put half (1 pie crust) in the bottom and leave the other for the top.
Step two: In a large bowl mix together apples then add in your lemon juice, sugar, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
- Cooking Tip: Allow your apples to sit for 5-10 minutes to draw water out of the apples. This will help your pie from getting too soupy or wet when baking. After several minutes you want to drain the apples well before adding to your pie crust. I usually use a slotted spoon to scoop the apples out of the bowl and into the pie. Leaving any juice in the bowl and not in my pie.
Step three: Fill the bottom crust with your apple mixture and top with the other half of dough. Poke holes in the top or layout crust and slice with a pizza cutter into stripes and place crisscross on top of the pie. When topping your pie you need to make sure you have some type of slits so your crust does not raise to high and far away leaving a large gap between the apples and the top pie crust.
Step four: Whisk together water and egg yolk and lightly brush on top of the crust. Bake for 50 minutes or until golden brown. To keep your edges from burner add foil around the edges of the pie.
