Traditional Apple Pie Recipe
- 1 recipe for a 9 inch double crust pie (Try my Easy No-Fail Pie Crust Recipe)
- ½ cup butter
- 3 tablespoons flour
- ¼ cup water
- ½ cup white sugar
- ½ cup packed brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
- 6-8 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
- Melt the butter in a medium saucepan. Stir in flour to form a paste.
- Add water, white sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer for 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Place the bottom crust in your greased 9-inch pie pan. Fill with sliced apples. Cover with a lattice work crust. (You can also use a traditional one-piece crust top, BUT make sure you have large open slits cut for the next step to work properly)
- Gently pour the butter and sugar mixture over the crust. Pour slowly to allow time for the mixture to drain below the top crust.
- With a pastry brush, brush the sugar mixture that didn't drain into the pie evenly over the crust.
- Bake in a 350° for about an hour, or until apple are soft and crust is golden. If you notice your crust is getting too brown, cover with foil and continue baking.
