  • 1 unbaked 9-inch pie crust
  • 1 can of apple pie filling
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar (optional)
  • 1 egg beaten egg


  • If you don’t have an egg, 2-3 tablespoons of milk will work just as well.

How To Make

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). This will ensure that your apple pie will cook evenly and come out perfectly golden brown.
  2. Grease a 9-inch pie dish. Roll out the pie crust and gently press the pie crust against the bottom and sides of the dish.
  3. Pour in the contents of the canned apple pie filling, and spread the apples out evenly. Trim any excess dough from the pie crust around the edges.
  4. Take you’re beaten egg and brush this mixture over the edges of the pie crust. This will help to give your pie a beautiful golden brown color.
  5. Bake your apple pie in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes. The pie is done when the filling is bubbly and the crust is golden brown.
  6. Once the pie is finished baking, remove it from the oven. Sprinkle the sugar over the top. Then let the pie cool for at least 30 minutes. This will allow the filling to set and will make it easier to slice.
  7. Your delicious apple pie is now ready to be served. Slice it up and serve it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, a dollop of whipped cream, or warm vanilla custard. Enjoy the sweet, warm and gooey flavors of this classic dessert.
