Old Time Apple Pie

User Rating 4 Star Rating (1 Review)


This double crust apple pie is made with brown sugar and nutmeg in the filling.  Use our all butter pie pastry or your favorite pie pastry.


  • pastry for 9-inch double crust pie
  • 6 cups sliced and peeled tart apples
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon butter, cut in small pieces


Line a 9-inch pie pan with pastry. Mix next 8 ingredients and fill pie shell, laying apple slices flat. Dot with the butter. Roll out top crust and cut slits in several places for steam to escape. Moisten edges of crust well with cold water and adjust top crust. With fingers or fork, pinch two crusts together to make a tight seal around pie. Bake at 450° 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350° and bake 40 to 50 minutes longer.

This recipe tastes quite good. I personally add cinnamon and use apple chunks instead of slices but it tastes like the apple pie my grandma used to make!
