Ingredients

  • 2 9- inch pie crusts
  • ½ cup butter unsalted
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • ¼ cup water
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ½ cup light brown sugar packed
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 7-8 medium Granny Smith apples peeled, cored and sliced

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  • Peel, core, and slice apples.
  • Place one of the pie crusts in a sprayed pie pan. Add apples, creating a mound.
  • Prepare lattice design for top pie crust. Set aside.
  • Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour to form a paste. Add water, white sugar and brown sugar, and bring to a boil. Reduce temperature and let simmer. Add cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla. Stir to combine and remove from heat and let cool down a bit.
  • Pour ½ of the sugar and butter liquid over the apples and add the lattice crust on top. Slowly pour remaining sugar mixture over crust, letting it seep into the openings.
  • Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees F and continue baking for 35 to 45 minutes, until apples are soft. (Note: place a cookie sheet on the rack beneath the pie in case there is any runoff.)
  • Move pie to bottom oven rack if the top crust is getting too done.
