  • 1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter

  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 1/4 cup water

  • 1/2 cup white sugar

  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar

  • 8 Granny Smith apples – peeled, cored and sliced


  • 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.

  1. Sound great and I will definitely be making it. However, I would like to point out that it calls for pastry for a double-crust pie but only mentions using the bottom crust. New bakers may be a bit confused by this.
