Apple Pie and Crust

As I mentioned in my previous post, I made an apple pie from scratch over the weekend and I now believe I am Martha Stewart. Not really but I was super proud except for the crust fiasco. Last year I tried to make a pecan pie from scratch and the crust was a complete disaster so I felt redeemed. Plus, I had a rolling pin. Last time I used a bottle of Jameson.

The pie is super easy as is the crust. The crust recipe is linked below and is also where I found the pie recipe. It's not as pretty because I didn't have enough dough to finish up the lattice crust but believe when I say it was delicious.

Apple Pie
Two pie crusts
1/2 cup of butter
3 Tbs flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup water
8 apples sliced, cored, and peeled

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees

2. In saucepan, melt butter then whisk in flour. Add white sugar, brown sugar, and water. Bring to a boil continuously whisking, then simmer on low for 5 minutes.

3. Roll out both pie crusts. Place one on bottom of pie and use a pizza cutter to cut other crust into 1/4 inch strips. (I did this all before I started making the filling).

4. Fill pie crust with apples. Pour the liquid evenly over the apples.

5. Add strips of pie dough across your pie to make a lattice crust.

6. Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes then reduce temperature to 350 degrees. Bake for 45 minutes.
