Apple Pie

Happy 11.11.11. Happy Veteran’s Day! I thought we could celebrate with some Apple Pie…I like this recipe because it has a little bit of caramel flavor.

Apple Pie

1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie
1/2 cup unsalted butter
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon apple pie spice
1 teaspoon vanilla
8 Granny Smith apples – peeled, cored and sliced
Melt butter in a sauce pan. Stir in flour to form a paste. Add white sugar, brown sugar and water; bring to a boil. Reduce temperature, and simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add apple pie spice and vanilla.
Meanwhile, place the bottom crust in your pan. Combine apples and sauce in a large bowl and then place in your prepared pan. Cover with a lattice work crust. (Lots of tutorials out there…just google it).  Brush crust with egg whites and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Bake 15 minutes at 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), and continue baking for 35 to 45 minutes.
