  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 6 cups apples, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • Powdered sugar for dusting


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease a 9-inch pie dish with butter or oil.
  2. Peel, core, and thinly slice the apples. Place the apple slices in a bowl and sprinkle them with lemon juice. Add the cinnamon and 1 tablespoon of sugar, and stir to combine.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, ½ cup of sugar, and salt. Add the egg and softened butter, and mix until a smooth dough forms.
  4. Roll out two-thirds of the dough on a floured surface. Place the dough in the prepared pie dish and press it up the sides of the dish.
  5. Pour the apple mixture into the pie dish, and spread it evenly.
  6. Roll out the remaining dough and cut it into strips or shapes. Arrange the strips or shapes in a lattice pattern over the apple mixture.
  7. Bake the pie in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, until golden brown.
  8. Let the pie cool slightly, then dust it with powdered sugar.

Enjoy your delicious homemade apple pie!
