This apple pie recipe uses a combination of two types of apples, one for their tart crispiness and one for their sweetness. The apples are sauteed with sugar and spices before baking in a crust, which surprisingly prevents them from turning mushy when baked. What you get is a sweet apple pie with bits of tart and slightly crisp apples with no more mushy bits.
Print Recipe


  • 2 lbs peeled and sliced Braeburn apples
  • 2 lbs peeled and sliced Golden Delicious apples
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 tbsp flour
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • Refrigerated or homemade pie crust
  • egg wash


  • Peel and slice your apples.
  • Melt butter in a large skillet.
  • Add apples and saute them for about three minutes.
  • Add the sugars, flour, spices and salt and saute with apples another five minutes. If the juices are still quite runny, you can saute for another minute or so.
  • Let the mixture cool completely. You can leave in the refrigerator over night.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prepare your pie crust. Set the bottom crust into your pie plate.
  • Add the apples into the crust.
  • Cover with a top crust. Cut slits in the top and crimp the edges. Bonus points if you add some cute little pie crust cut-outs to the top.
  • Brush on an egg wash and bake at 350 degrees for about an hour and 15 minutes.
  • Let the pie cool completely before cutting it.
