|Apple Pie with a scoop of ice cream|
Apple Pie (Original Recipe)
1 recipe for a 9-inch double pie crust
1/2 cup butter
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
8 apples, peeled, cored and sliced (the recipe calls for Granny Smith but I used Fuji, I think next time I will be trying it with the Granny Smith)
|Sugar mixture simmering|
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Melt the butter in a saucepan. Stir in the flour to form a paste. Add water and sugars. Bring to a boil. Reduce temperature and let simmer. (I did make sure to stir this occasionally).
Gently and SLOWLY pour the sugar mixture over the crust making sure that it gets into the pie through the gaps in the lattice work. DO NOT LET IT RUN OFF THE PIE!
|Notice the large gaps in the lattice work!|
