I've been making this pie for longer than I can remember. It's a family favorite and always gets raves wherever I take it. When a delicious apple pie is needed, I refuse to use any other recipe!

How to Make American Apple Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly press pie crust into a 9 inch pie plate.
  2. In a bowl, combine apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg; spoon into pie plate.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine sugar and flour; cut in cold butter with a fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle crumbs over pie.
