The Perfect Apple Pie 

After taking advantage of local Ottawa apple-picking orchards, it only makes sense that we give you the perfect apple pie recipe. Apple pie is the perfect Fall staple, hearty and warm. Read on for our recipe. 

Our Favorite Apple Pie

For this recipe, you’ll need: 

  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar

  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 6 to 7 cups thinly sliced peeled tart apples

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • Pastry for double-crust pie

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 1 large egg white

  • Additional sugar

Directions: 

  1. In a small bowl, combine the sugars, flour and spices; set aside. In a large bowl, toss apples with lemon juice. Add sugar mixture; toss to coat.

  2. Line a 9-in. pie plate with bottom crust; trim even with edge. Fill with apple mixture; dot with butter. Roll remaining crust to fit top of pie; place over filling. Trim, seal and flute edges. Cut slits in crust.

  3. Beat egg white until foamy; brush over crust. Sprinkle with sugar. Cover edges loosely with foil.

  4. Bake at 375° for 25 minutes. Remove foil and bake until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly, 20-25 minutes longer. Cool on a wire rack.
