When we got home, it was one of the recipes I couldn’t wait to pull out of my trusty old recipe box and recreate.

This easy deep dish apple pie recipe is the result.

I think you’ll agree that it’s magical.

Deep Dish Apple Pie Ingredients

For the crust, you’ll need flour, unsalted butter, salt, sugar, chilled vodka and ice water.

We’ll also be making an egg wash with egg and sugar for the crust.

For the filling, you’ll need apples (mix of granny smith, honey crisp, and pink lady), sugar, flour, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, lemon juice, brandy and butter.

Now, let’s make some magic happen.

First, in a food processor, pulse together the flour, salt, and sugar to combine. Cube butter and add to the flour mixture. Pulse a few times until you have a crumbs the size of peas.

Drizzle vodka and 2 TBSP of water as evenly as possible over the mixture. Pulse a few times. Pinch the dough, if it holds together remove from the food processor and divide in to 2 disks. If the dough crumbles, add 2 tsp of water at a time and pulse. This will be different depending on the humidity.

Wrap each disk in saran wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes or up to 2 days.

While the dough is chilling, peel, core, and cut apples to 1/4” thick.
