Recipe: How to Make the Most Delicious Homemade Apple Pie

This is the perfect recipe for homemade apple pie! 
Homemade Apple Pie baked and ready to serve from Walking on Sunshine Recipes.

Let's talk pie today! 

What is your favorite pie for Thanksgiving?  For years I've been all about pumpkin, pumpkin, pumpkin and then I discovered how really delicious apple pie can be.

I really like apple pie warm from the oven with just a little fresh whipped cream.  Okay, a lot of fresh whipped cream!  Today I'm sharing with you a recipe for the Most Delicious Homemade Apple Pie that you will love!  It's perfect for Thanksgiving meal or really for any time of the year.  It's that good! 

Oh, and before we get started, I have a confession to make to you.  The apple pie in the photo above is one my sister made the last time our family got together a few weeks ago.  

Thanksgiving is in a few days!  Are you ready?  Is the turkey in the refrigerator defrosting?  It should be!  We picked ours up on Saturday and it's in the refrigerator and hopefully will be defrosted in time for me to prep it on Wednesday night.

Yes, I like to get it all cleaned and ready to go the night before. That way when I get up on Thursday morning I just have to take it out of the refrigerator and into the oven it goes. Don't worry, I don't stuff our turkey any longer. 

By now I'm sure you have your menu all planned and are getting ready to set the table.  Usually my table is always set by this time but we're having some work done in the house and it's delaying me. It's also causing me some major anxiety that things won't be done on time, but it's really beyond my control right now, so let's talk pie and get into this really delicious apple pie recipe.

Add the apples to the pie crust that is already fitted in the bottom of the pie plate.  Add the top pie crust dough, crimp the edges and brush with the egg wash before baking.

Here are a few Finishing Touches for Pie Crust

To make your pie crust beautiful top is off with any of the following washes to the top of the crust; avoiding the edges BEFORE baking:


  • For a shiny light brown crust: brush with an egg white that has been lightly beaten with a teaspoon of water. 
  • For a glossy golden pie crust: brush the crust with an egg yolk and a teaspoon of water.  
  • For a crisp brown crust: brush the pie crust just with water. 
  • For a little sparkle: sprinkle sugar on top as well.
