Table of Content


  • 6 cups sliced peeled Golden Delicious apples
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons apple juice, divided
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon apple pie spice
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

For Crust –

  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup cold butter
  • 6 to 8 tablespoons ice water

Steps To Bake

Step 1 – In a large saucepan, combine apples, 3/4 cup apple juice, sugar, cinnamon and apple pie spice; bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Combine cornstarch and remaining apple juice; add to saucepan. Return to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook and stir for 1 minute more or until thickened. Remove from the heat. Stir in vanilla. Cool to room temperature, stirring occasionally.

Step 2 – For the crust, combine flour and salt; cut in the butter until the mixture is crumbly. Gradually add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, tossing with a fork until dough can be formed into a ball. Divide into 2 portions, making 1 piece slightly larger. On a lightly floured surface, roll out a larger portion.

Step 3 – Line a 9-in. pie plate with bottom crust; trim even with the edge of the plate. Add filling. Roll out the remaining dough to fit the top of the pie; place over the filling. Trim, seal, and flute edges. Cut slits in the top.

Step 4 – Bake at 400° for 40-45 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and apples are tender. Cool on a wire rack.

You now have it! You may make an eye-catching dessert that is visually attractive and tasty with a little effort. Savored warm with a dollop of vanilla ice cream or eaten at room temperature with a cup of tea, the Golden Apple Pie is sure to become a new favorite. Now go bake some, share it with those you love, and revel in the goodness of golden apples!
