  • 2 Apples, peeled, cored, sliced
  • 2 Tbsp Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp Nutmeg
  • 1/3 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla
  • 3 tsp Lemon Juice
  • 1/4 cup Pecans, chopped (optional)
  • 1 9" Pie Crust, room temp. (store bought is a great shortcut)

Egg Wash (whisk together well)

  • 1 Egg
  • 2 tsp Water


  1. Heat oven to 425° (F)

    Line a baking sheet with parchment.

  2. In a mixing bowl, add the apples, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar, vanilla, and lemon juice, and pecans, if using. Mix well to combine.

  3. On the parchment lined baking sheet, lay the crust out and mound the filling on it, leaving about a 2" to 3" margin around the edge.

  4. Fold a section of the crust onto the fruit. The fold will be where the margin meets the edge of the fruit. Turn the pan a quarter turn. Fold over another section, then give the pan a quarter turn and fold another section, and so on until all of the margin of crust has been folded onto the fruit.

  5. Brush an egg wash on the crust and put in the oven. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until crust is nicely browned and apples are tender.
