Ingredients for Butter Pie Crust Dough Recipe:

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more to dust, *measured correctly
1/2 Tbsp granulated sugar
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 lb COLD unsalted butter, (2 sticks) diced into 1/4″ pieces
7 Tbsp ice water, (7 to 8 Tbsp)


Place flour, sugar and salt into the bowl of a food processor and pulse a few times to combine.

Add cold diced butter and pulse the mixture until coarse crumbs form with some pea-sized pieces then stop mixing. Mixture should remain dry and powdery.

Add 7 Tbsp ice water and pulse just until moist clumps or small balls form. Press a piece of dough between your finger tips and if the dough sticks together, you have added enough water. If not, add more water a teaspoon full at a time.

Be careful not to add too much water or the dough will be sticky and difficult to roll out.

Transfer dough to a clean work surface, and gather dough together into a ball (it should not be smooth and DO NOT knead the dough). Divide dough in half and flatten to form 2 disks.

Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 1 hour before using in recipes that call for pie crust.


2 1/4 lbs Granny Smith Apples, peeled, cored 6-7 apples (7 cups thinly sliced)
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
8 Tbsp unsalted butter
3 Tbsp all-purpose flour
1/4 cup water
1 cup granulated sugar
1 egg , + 1 Tbsp water, for egg wash


Make the pie crust recipe and chill per instructions while preparing the filling. Preheat oven to 425˚F.

Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in 3 Tbsp flour then simmer for 1 minute, whisking constantly. Whisk in 1/4 cup water, 1 cup sugar and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and continue simmering 3 minutes, whisking frequently then remove from heat.

Peel, remove cores and thinly slice 7 cups of apples and place them in a large bowl. Sprinkle the top with 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon and toss to combine. Pour the sauce over the apples and stir to coat the apple slices.

Sprinkle your work surface with flour and roll out bottom pie crust to a 12″ diameter circle. Wrap it around your rolling pin to transfer it to the 9″ pie plate.

Add apple mixture, mounding slightly in the center and being careful not to get the filling on the edges which would make it difficult to seal.

Roll second crust into an 11″ round and cut into 10 even thickness strips using a pizza cutter. Arrange strips in a woven lattice pattern over the top (see video tutorial). Beat together 1 egg and 1 Tbsp water and brush the top with egg mixture.

Bake at 425˚F in the center of the oven for 15 minutes. Reduce the heat to 350˚F and continue baking another 45 minutes or until apples are soft and filling is bubbling through the vents.* Rest at room temp 1 hour before serving.

8 peeled & sliced, half Granny Smith, half Macintosh apples
2 sticks cold and cubed, plus 2 tablespoons cold and sliced unsalted butter
1 1/4 cups plus 1 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 1/2 cups plus 3 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 to 1/2 cup ice water
1 lightly beaten, for egg wash egg
for dusting cinnamon sugar


Preheat oven to 400 °F.

In a food processor combine the 2 1/2 cups flour, salt, 1 teaspoon sugar and pulse. Add in 2 sticks cubed, cold butter and slowly gradually add the ice water. Pulse until dough just comes together. Don’t overwork the dough or it will make a tough crust.

Remove the dough from processor. Cut into two equal sections. Pat sections into discs and wrap in plastic wrap and place into refrigerator. Chill for 1 hour. (can be frozen for future use)

In a small mixing bowl bowl, combine cinnamon, nutmeg, 1 1/4 cups sugar and 2 tablespoons flour, set aside. In a large mixing bowl, add the peeled and sliced apples. Sprinkle spice and flour mixture over apples. Toss to coat.

Remove one chilled disc of dough from the refrigerator and roll out on a lightly floured surface, large enough to cover your pie pan. Shape to fit, cutting off any excess.

Pour apple mixture into pie pan and add your 2 tablespoons sliced butter to the top of the mixture. Remove second dough disk from refrigerator and roll out large enough to fit the top of your pie with an overhang.

Place pie dough on top of apple mixture and crimp edges to seal. With a knife, add four slits to your piecrust. Lightly brush egg wash onto top of dough. Sprinkle liberally with cinnamon sugar.

Place onto a baking tray into preheated oven for approximately 50 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly. Allow pie to rest until cool before slicing. Refrigerate any uneaten portions.

2 ½ cups flour(315 g)
1 teaspoon salt
1 ½ sticks butter, 1 1/2 sticks, cold, cubed
8 tablespoons ice water, or as needed


2 ½ lb granny smith apple(1 kg), cored, sliced, peeled
¾ cup sugar(150 g)
2 tablespoons flour
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
½ lemon
1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoon sugar


1 scoop vanilla ice cream


In a medium-sized bowl, add the flour and salt. Mix with fork until combined.

Add in cubed butter and break up into flour with a fork. Mixture will still have lumps about the size of small peas.

Gradually add the ice water and continue to mix until the dough starts to come together. You may not need all of the water, but if the dough is too dry then add more. The dough should not be very tacky or sticky.

Work the dough together with your hands and turn out onto a surface. Work into a ball and cover with cling wrap. Refrigerate.

Peel the apples, then core and slice.

In a bowl, add the sliced apples, sugar, flour, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and juice from the lemon.

Mix until combined and all apples are coated. Refrigerate.

Preheat the oven to 375°F (200°C).

On a floured surface, cut the pie dough in half and roll out both halves until round and about ⅛-inch (3 mm) thick.

Roll the dough around the rolling pin and unroll onto a pie dish making sure the dough reaches all edges. Trim extra if necessary.

Pour in apple filling mixture and pat down.

Roll the other half of the dough on top.

Trim the extra dough from the edges and pinch the edges to create a crimp. Make sure edges are sealed together.

Brush the pie with the beaten egg and sprinkle with the sugar.

Cut four slits in the top of the pie to create a vent.

Bake pie for 50-60 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and no greyish or undercooked pastry remains.

Allow to cool completely before slicing.

Top with ice cream and serve.
