What kind of Apples for Apple Pie?

You can use a mix of Honeycrisp and Granny Smith apples for this pie, but feel free to use any kind of baking apple that you prefer.

For the best apple flavor, use more than one variety of apple. Use apples that will hold their shape during baking: Granny Smith, Ginger Gold, Cameo, Jonagold, Northern Spy, and Delicious are some good choices.


  • You can reduce the sugar by half in the recipe or use a sweetener substitute made for baking.
  • Make sure to slice your apples about 1/4-inch thick. Slicing them too thin will make the filling turn mushy.
  • Make sure to prep your apple pie filling first, then prep your pie crusts. This will give the apples time to release their juices.
  • You can add 1 cup of dried cranberries for to the filling if you prefer. This gives a pretty look for the Holidays.
  • Sprinkle some coarse sugar on the top of the crust before baking for added sweetness and texture.

This apple pie turned out so good! I don’t bake a lot so I was nervous how this would turn out for me. It was really easy and turned out delicious! Best apple pie I’ve had!!5 stars

I haven’t made an apple pie in quite some time and this one seemed simple to make. It turned out delicious. it wasn’t too sweet it was just right. Was a big hit! I appreciated the tips as well. I did put the bottom crust in the oven for first five minutes before filling it. Kept it from getting soggy. Thank you5 stars
