Last week I made an AMAZING homemade Apple Pie and it was FANTASTIC! It was devoured in about 5 minutes, so I thought I'd share. Enjoy!
Grandma Ople's Apple Pie
-1 Recipe pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie
-1/2 Cup Unsalted Butter
-3 Tablespoons All-Purpose Flour
-1/4 Cup Water
-1/2 Cup White Sugar
-1/2 Cup Packed Brown Sugar
-2 Teaspoons Cinnamon
-2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
-8 Granny Smith Apples- Peeled, cored, and sliced
-1 Egg White
-Preaheat oven to 425 Degrees. Melt the butter in saucepan. Stir in flour to form a paste. Add water, white sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon and vanilla extract. Bring to a boil. Reduce temperature and let simmer 5-10 minutes. Pour about 1/4 cup of the mixture into a small bowl and set aside.
-Add apples to filling mixture. Toss to coat.
-Place the bottom crust in a 9 inch pie pan. Use a basting brush and brush with egg white. (This keeps the bottom crust from getting soggy.) Fill with apples, slightly mounded. Cover with a lattice work crust. Pour reserved caramel mixture over the lattice work.
-Bake 15 minutes in the preheated over. Reduce temperature to 350 degrees and continue baking for 35-45 minutes, until apples are soft.
(Tip: Place a cookie sheet under the pie pan to keep drips from getting on the bottom of your oven.)
