Rustic Apple Pie

Rustic Apple Pie

A spiced apple assortment gives this pie a farm-to-table feel.


6 servings


  • prepared pastry for one-crust 9-inch pie
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed C&H® Golden Brown Sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 4 cups Golden Delicious apples, cored, peeled and sliced
  • fresh blackberries (optional garnish)
  • C&H® Confectioners Sugar for dusting


Preheat oven to 425°F. Prepare foil-lined cookie sheet.

Roll pastry into an 11-inch circle. Transfer to prepared cookie sheet.

In a large bowl, mix brown sugar, flour and cinnamon. Add apples; toss to coat well. Spoon apples into center of crust, leaving a 2-inch edge. Fold pastry up onto apples, pinching the edge at 2-inch intervals.

Bake for 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 375°F and bake 30 minutes longer, or until apples are tender.

For a special touch, sprinkle the top with fresh blackberries. Before serving, dust with confectioners' sugar.


When you bake an apple pie, you need to choose a variety that can stand up to the heat. Other varieties good for baking include Rome Beauty, Cortland, Stayman, Granny Smith and Winesap.
