Simple apple pie

This simple apple pie is the perfect recipe for the ones who search for low fat and low sugar desserts. It is a delicious and crispy nest filled with apples, little brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

I saw the recipe on TheSpruceEats blog and couldn’t wait to prepare it. I made it today before lunch as it is also quick to prepare.

What to say? That it is so tasty and also so beautiful. Who knows me through the blog knows I love the Italian sentence that says “the eyes have to have their part”.

I prepared it with the apples I had at home, fuji kind. But you can use the apples you prefer. I bought phyllo pastry already in sheets, very easy to use.

Instead of brushing phyllo pastry sheets with butter, in this recipe, you brush them with a mixture of honey and water. Just delicious.



  • 5 sheets of phyllo crust
  • 5 apples
  • ¼ cup of cane sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp flour
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 3 to 4 Tbsp warm water


  1. Turn on the oven 356°F/180°C.
  2. Grease a 9.4 in oven pan with nonstick spray.
  3. Wash and peel the apples. Eliminate the hard parts and slice them thinly.
  4. Put apples in a capacious bowl and add cinnamon, nutmeg, sugar, lemon, and flour. Mix it all with care until well combined.
  5. Mix water and honey.
  6. Open phyllo pastry and, using a kitchen brush, brush the first sheet and put it on the pan, leaving exceeding borders falling outside. Repeat with the next sheet, putting it in over the first creating a cross shape, as to cover all sides well.
  7. Repeat with the other sheets until finished, always leaving the exceeding parts to fall out of the pan.
  8. Pour apples into the pan and then fold in the hanging pastry sides, creating a gallette effect.
  9. Bake for 25/30 min or until the pie I baken and golden.
  10. Serve warm or at room temperature.
  11. Buon appetite!
