Good To Know

  • First, don’t overmix the pie dough, mix just until the dough begins to form, you should see small pieces of fat dispersed throughout the dough, this is a sign your pie dough is good.
  • Second, make sure all the apple slices are the same thickness, I slice mine at around 1/4 thick.
  • Third, never, never, never, ever skimp on the crumble topping, add a mountain full covering the surface.
  • Fourth, always use cold butter when cutting it into the flour mixture, this will ensure your pie crust turns out super flaky. I freeze my butter about 1 hour before cutting it into cubes.
  • Fifth, make sure you use ice cold water when mixing the pie dough, this will prevent the butter from melting in dough keeping it in check with a consistent cold dough temperature.
  • Sixth, follow our baking instructions to the T, for the best baked apple pie.
