Brown sugar, butter and cinnamon give this pie the unmistakable savor of autumn. Try mixing apple varieties for a fun study in flavors!



Preheat oven to 425° F.

Line a 9-inch pie pan with half the dough. Combine brown sugar with cinnamon and flour and toss with apples and lemon juice. Pour apple mixture into prepared pie shell. Dot butter across the filling.

Roll out remaining dough to form the top crust. Cut decorative vents in crust with small cookie cutters, or just slit it in a few places with a knife. Lay top crust over fruit. Crimp or flute the pastry together. You may brush the surface with a little egg wash and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar if you like.

Bake pie for 10 minutes, and then reduce the temperature to 350° F. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes longer or until pastry is golden brown and filling is bubbly.


If you mix varieties, you can choose from so many different apple flavors and textures. Here are a few of my pie favorites: Granny Smith, Pink Lady, Honeycrisp, Braeburn and Fuji. Feel free to experiment!

love this recipe

It is so simple and perfect! I make them into individual servings using 1/2 pint canning jars then freeze them and bake one as we each want one. Perfect for one or two!
