This brown sugar walnut apple pie in a flaky, buttery crust, with two varieties of apples, brown sugar, spices, and toasted walnuts makes the perfect easy holiday pie.


  • 1 flaky pie crust
  • 1 cup Diamond of California Walnuts
  • 4-5 medium apples, cored and very thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • pinch ground cloves (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Press your piecrust into a 10-inch pie pan if it isn’t already in one. Bake for 5-8 minutes, set aside.
  • Place walnuts in a large skillet and stir over medium-high heat 3-4 minutes until nicely toasted (careful not to burn them though). Set aside.
  • In a large bowl toss sliced apples with flour to coat. Whisk together brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and salt. Stir in walnuts.
  • Layer half of the apples in the pie crust. Sprinkle half of the brown sugar mixture over the apples. Top with remaining apples, then with remaining brown sugar mixture.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes until apples are tender and very easily pierced with a fork. Serve warm as-is, or with vanilla ice cream.
