You might be enjoying this type of pie since you were a child, but do you know which apple varieties are used to make this delightful pie?

How does this Apple Pie Recipe work?
This recipe involves two general steps. The first is to prepare the pie, while the second is to bake it in the oven.
Prepare the apple pie by mixing all the ingredients in a large bowl (except for the dough and butter). Arrange a pastry dough in a circular pan and then pour the mixture in. Top with butter and cover with the second pastry dough. You will need to make holes on the dough so that steam can escape when baking.
The baking process is simple. Preheat the oven to 425 F and then bake. You may also want to apply egg wash on the pie before baking to make it look nicer when done.
