My family Apple Pie recipe has been kept in the family for a good reason. It’s perfectly reliable and perfect for the July 4th holiday weekend.


  • 1 Double Pie Crust


  • 6 Medium Thinly Sliced Medium Apples (6 Cups)
  • 3/4 Cup Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Unbleached Flour
  • 1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
  • 1 Tablespoon Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Line bottom of ungreased 9 inch pie plate with pie crust. Make sure to press firmly against sides and bottom.

In a large-size bowl, gently mixt apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon, kosher salt, nutmeg, and lemon juice. Spoon apple mixture into pie plate on top of pie crust. Spread evenly. Top with second crust and seal edges by pinching together. Cut slits in several places in top crust.

Place in oven and bake for 40 to 45 minutes until apples are tender and crust is golden brown. Cover edges of crust with strips of foil after first 15 minutes of baking to make sure edges don’t get too brown. Remove from oven and cool for 2 hours before serving. Makes 1 apple pie and serves 8.

While living in France, Victoria studied French cooking from an expert Lyonnais chef. Victoria learned to love the local culture of preparing and enjoying fresh, seasonal foods. While in France, Victoria experienced the joys of shopping for local produce at the market and preparing fresh foods simply and beautifully in order to enhance the experience of the table. During her time in France, she says she “learned how to squeeze tomatoes at the local market” and “took everything in by osmosis.”
