• 3 cups  all-purpose flour

  • 1 tsp  salt

  • 3/4 cup  vegetable oil

  • 1/3 cup milk (any kind, dairy or non-dairy works)                                          FILLING

  • 8 cups sliced apples (about 6 large apples, approx 2 lbs, cut 1/4″ thick)

  • 1/2 cup  packed brown sugar

  • 1/4 cup  all-purpose flour

  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon


  • The best flaky pie crust made with only 4 ingredients. All you need for this pie crust is all-purpose flour, vegetable oil, milk of any kind (dairy or non-dairy, so this recipe can be made vegan), and a little bit of salt. There is no chilling required, no food-processor or pastry cutter needed. All you do is mix and roll.

  • The best apple pie filling made with fresh apples and only 3 other ingredients. Other than apples, the only other ingredients you need to make the filling are brown sugar for sweetness, cinnamon for flavor, and flour to thicken the natural fruit juice that is released from the apples while baking (or else it will be like soup when you cut into the pie.)

  • There is no easier apple pie recipe out there that tastes as amazing as this one. Here is what my readers have to say:



  1. You start by preparing your pie crust. So in a large bowl, whisk together some flour and salt. Make a well in the center. Add in the milk and vegetable oil.

  2. Stir the mixture together. Then transfer the dough onto a sheet of wax paper.

  3. Gently knead it into a ball and divide into two parts. Roll each part in between two sheets of wax paper.

  4. Fit one piece into your pie plate. Set the other aside for the top crust.

  5. In another large bowl, toss together your apples, brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Spoon the apple mixture into your pie plate.

  6. Top with the second pie crust. Seal and crimp the edges. Cut a few slits in the top crust for ventilation and bake for 45 minutes.
