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)
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
