  • 1 refrigerated pie crust
  • 2 medium apples peeled and thinly sliced
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoon sanding sugar or sugar in the raw
  • Optional: vanilla ice cream


  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Roll out the pie crust on the parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl, toss the apples, sugar, cinnamon and cornstarch together until well coated. Arrange the apples in a layer in the center of the pie dough, leaving about 2 inches around to fold in.
  • Fold in the pie dough to partially cover the apples, crimping it if you like. Brush the beaten egg over the dough and sprinkle with sanding sugar.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown and the apples are soft.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool. Slice in the wedges and serve with scoops of vanilla ice cream, if desired.
