Makes: 8 servings
  • 6 apples, such as Ambrosia, Cortland, Granny Smith, or Honeycrisp, or a mix
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) water or milk
  • 3/4 C (180 ml) lightly packed brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp (30 ml) corn starch
  • 1 Tbsp (15 ml) Apple Pie Spice
  • 1 Tbsp (15 ml) apple cider vinegar or lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp (60 ml) Sea Salt (Grinder)
  • 2 deep dish frozen pie shells (9" each), defrosted


  • Peel and core apples; thinly slice. You should have about 8 cups. Place in Multipurpose Steamer . Cover and microwave on high for 4 min or until they start to soften. Uncover and refrigerate until cool, about 15 min. Stir in sugar, corn starch, apple pie spice, vinegar and salt; toss to coat.
  • Meanwhile, preheat oven to 425° F. Place one uncooked pie shell on Sheet Pan. In a small bowl, whisk egg with water.
  • Turn cooled apples into pie shell on pan. Lightly brush rim of pastry with egg wash.
  • Invert remaining shell (still in plate) overtop. Gently loosen dough from edges. Discard foil plate. Gently press dough edges together; crimp with tines of a fork.
  • Generously brush top of pie with egg wash (discard any leftover). Using a knife, cut a few steam vents in top.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 20 min. Reduce heat to 375° F. Continue to bake until crust is deep golden, 30-40 min. Cool completely on a wire rack before serving.
