1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie
about 1/2 cup unsalted butter
around 2 tablespoons of all -purpose flour
A little less then 1/4 cup of water
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 teas cinnamon
1/2 teas nutmeg
1 tablespoon vanilla
About 1 Tablespoon of cornstarch
Around 7 small Granny Smith apples..peeled,cored and sliced. If you do not like Granny smith apples you can use about 4 large red ones. Some find Granny smith to tart.
(Make only half of the mixture first because you will mix it in with the apples inside the pie and the rest needs to be made the last 15min of baking to be poured on top of the pie).
Preheat oven to 350
Melt butter.Stir in flour to make a past.Add water,white ,brown sugar,cinnamon,nutmeg,vanilla and cornstarch.. bring to boil. Reduce Temp and let simmer. (Remember only half of this liquid mixture for now)
Place the bottom crust in your pan (if you don’t like soft crust on the bottom like me you can brush it with egg white before hand.
Fill with apple and pour about half of the butter liquid on apples (mix it well).
Cover with a lattice work crust.
Bake for 30 min at 350 degrees or until apples are soft. Now pour the rest of the mixture on top of the pie and bake for another 15 min.
I know this is a mission. But if it’s done right.You will make the best apple pie you ever tasted. Trust me. It took me tons of recipes and tons of changes to make my own pie and have my own recipe. This is my famous Apple Pie:)
So here it is…enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving.
Tips: Prepare the lattice ahead of time and keep in fridge.
Glass pie dish,they are bigger and deeper than the tin ones.Put a pan lined with foil underneath it before baking so if any juice runs off it doesn’t make a mess.
