Prep Time:30 mins
Cook Time:1 hr
Total Time:1 hr 30 mins
Servings:12 slices

Ingredients

  • 8 large apples peeled, cored and sliced
  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup water
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 9-inch pie crusts

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 425°F and grease a pie pan. Unroll the pie crust and press down into the pie pan. Press against the sides and the bottom.
  • Add butter to a pan and melt it over low heat. Add flour and stir well to combine. Add sugars and water and bring to a boil. Simmer for a few minutes.
  • Top the crust with apples, add flour sugar mixture on top. Cut the second pie crust into slices and top the pie with the slices.
  • Bake for 15 minutes. Reduce the heat to 350°F and cook for 40-45 minutes more until the crust is golen brown. Serve and enjoy!

Notes

  • Don’t skimp on the flour or you’ll have a watery sauce and your pie will have a soggy bottom!
  • If you’re worried about the crust burning at the edges just add a little foil over it.
  • Not doing a lattice design on top? Don’t forget to cut slits in the top layer of pastry so the steam has a way to escape.
  • Add a warm earthy flavor by adding a pinch of apple pie spice or some ground cinnamon and nutmeg.
