It's Fall.. time to start picking all those delicious apples.. This is a fantastic recipe for (in my opinion, and others who have tasted it) the best apple pie recipe ever! It was rated 5 out of 5 by 1600 people who have tried it! Delicious!
1 Recipe pastry for a 9 inch double pie crust
1/2 c. Unsalted Butter
4 tbs. All purpose flour
1/4 c. Water
1/2 c. White sugar
1/2 c. Packed brown sugar
8 Granny Smith Apples, peeled and cored
1 ts. Cinnamon
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Melt butter in a saucepan.
Stir in flour to form a paste.
Add water,white sugar, brown sugar and cinnamon. Bring to a boil. Reduce temperature and simmer.
Place the bottom of your crust in the pan.
Fill with apples, mounded slightly. Cover with a lattice work of crust.
Gently pour the sugar and butter liquid over the crust. (Reserve 1/4 of the sugar mixture to baste if using a full pie crust)**
Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven.
Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees. Continue baking 30-45 minutes until the apples are soft.
** I used a full pie crust. After placing top of crust to top of pie, Save 1/4 of the sugar and butter mixture and baste the top of the pie crust. Bake as directed.

YUM. That looks delicious and I love that the crust is made with butter instead of shortening. I am always on the lookout for the perfect apple pie...
