The Best Rosemary Browned Butter Apple Pie

Have you ever tasted something so yummy that you just couldn’t get it out of your head? That happened to me last Fall when my lovely sister in-law brought the most delicious apple pie to a family gathering. It was from a local bakery/coffee shop here in town named Bindle.

Ever since then I have been on a mission to recreate that pie and today I am happy to say that with the help of my mom, we were able to do it.  We made the best rosemary browned butter apple pie and now I am sharing the recipe with you!

The Best Rosemary Browned Butter Apple Pie

Friends, this pie is simply amazing. It was yummy served both hot and cold. You really can’t go wrong either way! 

My mom and I teamed up for this fun recipe and the girls jumped in to help too. We had two large bags full of Granny Smith apples. My mom shared her amazing apple peeler and this saved us a ton of time. Peeling the apples for rosemary browned butter apple pie.

Not Your Average Apple Pie

The biggest difference between this recipe and others is that you cook your apples after you peel them. You use flour, corn starch, brown sugar (no cinnamon) and you cook the apples in all of this as well as browned butter and rosemary! Oh goodness it smells so good!Apples cooking in browned butter and rosemary.

Assembling and Cooking Your Pie

Once the apples are cooked, cool them in the fridge and roll out your dough into your pie plate. (I even used store bought dough!) As soon as the apple filling is cooled, load it into the pan. Next, place some pats of butter on top of the filling and then roll the dough over the top. Crimp the top and bottom dough edges together. This doesn’t have to be fancy! Pop it into the oven at 375 degrees for 45 minutes.

The Best Rosemary Browned Butter Apple Pie

The Best Rosemary Browned Butter Apple Pie
Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 45 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 15 minutes


  • 1/4 cup Salted Butter
  • 7 cups peeled and sliced Granny Smith Apples
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
  • 2 Tbsp Unbleached White All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 Tbsp Corn Starch
  • 2 tsp fresh minced Rosemary
  • 1 box (14.1 oz.) refrigerated pie crusts (I use Pillsbury brand, which has 2 crusts in each box)


    1. Place butter in a large pan over medium heat and immediately begin to stir as it bubbles. After a few minutes, you should see light brown bits appear on the bottom of the pan. Once you have reached the light golden brown color, add your sliced Granny Smith apples, which will cool down the pan and stop the browning process.

    2. Next, stir the apples around to coat with the browned butter and cook on a medium-low heat. Sprinkle the apples with sugar and the minced rosemary and let the apples cook for 6-8 minutes, stirring occasionally.

    3. Once the apples start to soften, sprinkle them with the flour and cornstarch, and stir the mixture well. Cook for another 5 minutes or so. Remove the mixture from the heat and let cool completely before filling your pie crust. If you are short on time you can spread the apple mixture on a cookie sheet to cool in the refrigerator.

    4. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

    5. Using room temperature pie crust, unroll the crust and place it in a 9 inch pie pan.

    6. Remove the apple filling from the fridge, scoop all of the filling into the pie, and add 4-6 pats of butter on top of your filling. Then top with the second crust. Crimp the top and bottom pieces together using your thumb and forefingers. Cut a few steam vents on the top of the pie, lightly brush the top of the pie with egg wash (egg and water whisked together) or milk and sprinkle with sparkling sugar.

    7. Place in the oven and bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes. Remove half way through to add foil around the edges of the crust so they do not burn.

    8. Remove from the oven and let it cool for close to 2 hours.


The best part about this recipe is that you can freeze the apple pie filling for up to four months. This enables you to make extra and have an apple pie ready to make and eat in under an hour!
