As easy as Apple Pie!

In honor of Fall I will post a grown up pie! 

What you will need:
  • 1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie (I used store bought)
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 8 Granny Smith apples - peeled, cored and sliced

Peel the apples. I used 4 Ginger gold and 4 Honey Crisp
Cut the apples. I only cut 6 of the 8 apples that I peeled.
Look at the yummy apples
Melt the butter
Add 3 tablespoons of flour to the butter..stir well
Add 1/2 cup of brown and 1/2 cup of white sugar to the butter and flour mixture
Add 1/4 cup of water
Bring to a boil and let simmer for 5 minutes
Place pie crust in the pie plate and fill with sliced apples. I only used 6 apples and not the recommended 8 apples.
Cut the remaining pie crust into .5 inch strips
This is a great video on how to make a lattice top for your pie.
Use every other strip of pie crust 

Weave the rest of the pie crust..the above video is really helpful
Pour the butter mixture over the lattice top. Do this very slowly
I saved some of the butter mixture. I brushed it over the entire pie
Bake 15 minutes at 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), and continue baking for 35 to 45 minutes.
This is a really easy and yummy pie. It does not call for many ingredients..I love that about this recipe. The pie was finished before the boys woke up from nap.

Love your blog, Alanna! The pie recipe looks good. One suggestion. Your blog needs more pictures of Derek.
