My husband came home with two big bags of apples last week from an orchard.  We gave one bag to the neighbors and he repeatedly said I could use our bag to make apple pies.  He never says anything like!  He usually eats what I set in front of him and doesn’t specifically ask for anything in particular.  We had the next day off of school and I took my girls to an apple orchard for the afternoon.  As I watched them play I thought, “I should go home and attempt to make an apple pie from scratch…even the crust”.  The girls were done playing and I took them home and looked for a pie recipe that would be easy to follow.  This is the one I stumbled on and I have to say it was not only simple, but delicious!  I actually made 3 pies from the apples and we ate them all!  Here is the recipe:  Enjoy!  (I did use a pie crust recipe from my Betty Crocker cookbook for the double crust)

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Melt the butter in a saucepan. Stir in flour to form a paste. Add water, white sugar and brown sugar, and bring to a boil. Reduce temperature and let simmer.
  2. Place the bottom crust in your pan. Fill with apples, mounded slightly. Cover with a lattice work crust. Gently pour the sugar and butter liquid over the crust. Pour slowly so that it does not run off.
  3. Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Continue baking for 35 to 45 minutes, until apples are soft.
