  • 2 ½ cups pie crust mix
  • ⅓ cup cold water
  • 6 cups thinly sliced peeled apples
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter


  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C).
  2. In a large bowl, combine the pie crust mix and cold water. Stir until the mixture forms a ball.
  3. Divide the dough in half and roll out one half on a lightly floured surface to fit a 9-inch pie plate.
  4. Transfer the rolled-out dough to the pie plate and trim any excess crust.
  5. In another large bowl, combine the sliced apples, granulated sugar, flour, cinnamon, and salt. Toss until the apples are evenly coated.
  6. Pour the apple mixture into the pie crust-lined pie plate.
  7. Dot the top of the apple mixture with small pieces of unsalted butter.
  8. Roll out the remaining pie crust and place it over the apple filling. Trim any excess crust and crimp the edges to seal the pie.
  9. Cut slits on the top crust to allow steam to escape during baking.
  10. Bake the pie in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbly.
  11. Remove the pie from the oven and let it cool for at least 1 hour before serving.
  12. Serve warm and enjoy!
