Caramel Apple Pie

     I think this was the first pie we ever let my daughter eat. She loves apple pie more than others, not that she has had so many different types in her short lifetime. We usually let her eat apple pie muffins instead, and save the good stuff for after she goes to bed.
     This recipe has actually been sitting in my "to post" file for a couple of months. I don't know why I haven't posted it, because this was a very good pie! I found the recipe, after a friend's recommendation at Allrecipes. It has a 5 star rating, with over 3,000 reviewers, so I'm not the only one who thinks it's delicious!
    
double 9-inch pie crust
1/2 c butter
3Tbl flour
1/4 c water
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c brown sugar
8 apples, peeled, cored, sliced
  • Preheat oven to 425*
  • 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. 
  • Cut top crust into strips, using a pizza cutter. Lay strips across the pie leaving a gap in between each. Rotate the pie and cover with more strips to form a lattice. Weaving takes too long, so just leave the strips layered. 
  • 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*. Continue baking for 35 to 45 minutes, until apples are soft. 

Love sweets like I do?
