My girlfriend Jeanne found an awesome recipe for apple pie on the website: allrecipes.com. I decided to try it this past weekend for my moms 80th birthday party. It was awesome—did not look perfect, but tasted good! I guess that is what counts, right? I love allrecipes.com—always find good things there. And now there is allrecipes.de!!! Yea. I may have lots and lots of cookbooks, but I when in doubt I always check my favorite cooking website for inspiration.
1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch double crust
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
8 Granny Smith apples – peeled, cored
||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.
||Meanwhile, place the bottom crust in your pan. Fill with apples, mounded slightly. Cover with a lattice work of crust. Gently pour the sugar and butter liquid over the crust. Pour slowly so that it does not run off.
||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.
