Bakery-Style Apple Pie

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 10 minutes
Servings 1 9-in pie. (8 servings)

Ingredients

  • Pastry for 1 double-crust 9-in pie
  • 5 cups peeled cored, and thinly-sliced apples
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar or brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons white whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 egg white for brushing
  • Additional sugar for sprinkling

Instructions

  1. Divide pie pastry in half, making one half slightly larger. Take the larger half and roll out to fit a 9-in pie plate. Place crust in pie and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine sliced apples, cinnamon, salt, flour, and lemon juice. Place apple filling in pie crust.
  3. Using the rest of the pie crust dough, make a lattice crust by rolling out dough and cutting into 11-in strips. Weave the strips in and out over apple filling, then trim, seal, and crimp edges of pie crust. If desired, use remaining scraps of pie pastry to cut out leaf shapes and arrange on top of lattice.
  4. Bake apple pie at 350F 55-60 minutes, or until crust is golden and apple filling is bubbly. Cool pie completely on a wire cooling rack before slicing.
