1 hr 20 min DURATION
20 min PREP TIME
8 servings SERVINGS


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 6 cups pared, chopped apples (about 6 medium apples)
  • 1 9-inch deep-dish pie crust, unbaked
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 4 egg yolks


  • Preheat oven to 375 F.
  • In large bowl, whisk together sugar, flour and cinnamon. Add apples, and toss gently to coat. Spoon into pie crust, mounding to center. Dot with butter.
  • Bake for 30 minutes, or until crust begins to brown and apples are tender. Remove from oven. Reduce oven temperature to 325 F.
  • In small bowl, beat whipping cream and egg yolks. Pour over apple filling, pressing lightly with fork so mixture seeps into filling.
  • Return to oven, and bake for an additional 30 minutes, or until crust is golden and filling is hot and bubbly.
  • Cool to room temperature before serving. Refrigerate leftovers. Discover more holiday pie recipes.

This apple pie recipe is even richer than ordinary apple pie, with a cream and egg sauce added to the filling halfway through baking.
