Best Apple Pie Ever

It's versatile and can be adjusted for lots of different kinds of fruits. In this video I make an apple-nectarine pie, but I've also tried it with just apples, or apple-rhubarb, strawberry-rhubarb and apple-peach; all combinations were delicious! This recipe is perfect for using up various summer fruit.

  • 1

    recipe pastry for a 9 inch crust pie (28cm)

  • ½

    cup (115g) unsalted butter

  • 3

    tablespoons (25g) all-purpose flour

  • ½

    cup (100g) white sugar

  • ½

    cup (110g) packed brown sugar

  • ¼

    cup (60ml) water

  • 8

    Granny Smith apples - peeled, cored and sliced*

  • In the video I used 5 apples and 5 nectarines, you can mix the fruit as you like.


Melt butter in a sauce pan. Stir in flour to form a paste. Add white sugar, brown sugar and water; bring to a boil. Reduce temperature, and simmer 5 minutes. Meanwhile, place the bottom crust in your pan. Fill with apples, mounded slightly. (Optional: Cover with a lattice work of crust. I skipped this part because I don't like so much dough.) Evenly pour the sauce over the fruits, and the lattice crust if you made one. Bake for 15 minutes at 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), and continue baking for 35 to 45 minutes.
