Daves Dads Apple Pie
50 Min

Growing up, Dave's dad always made the best apple pie during the summer holidays, and now you're lucky enough to get in on the secret. Your Fourth of July cookout is going to have a dessert that's as all-American as you are! Not even fireworks can hold a candle to this easy apple pie recipe.

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar, plus 1 teaspoon for sprinkling
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • Pinch of salt
  • 5 to 6 Fuji apples, peeled, cored, and cut into 1/4-inch wedges
  • 1 (15-ounce) package refrigerated rolled pie crusts
  • 2 tablespoons butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tablespoon cold water

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix 1/2 cup granulated sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, cloves, cornstarch, and salt. Add apples; toss until evenly coated.
  3. Place 1 pie crust in a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate, pressing crust firmly against plate. Pour apple mixture into pie crust. Place pieces of butter on top of apple mixture, then place remaining pie crust over top. Trim and pinch edges together to seal. With a knife, cut four 1-inch slits in top of crust.
  4. In a small bowl, beat egg white and water together. Crust over top of crust, and sprinkle with remaining granulated sugar.
  5. Bake 55 to 60 minutes, or until golden brown.
