Like Warm Apple Pie

Original Recipe:  http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Aunt-Carols-Apple-Pie-2/Detail.aspx

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds Granny Smith apples
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie

Directions

  1. Peel and slice apples. Toss with sugars, cinnamon and flour. Set aside.
  2. Roll crust to make slightly larger to fit 10-inch glass pie pan. Fit bottom crust in pie pan. Turn in apple mixture and dot with butter. Put crust on top and crimp edges of crust together.
  3. Wet hands with water and dampen top of pie. Sprinkle with additional sugar. Puncture top of pie with fork so pie will vent.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes at 450 degrees F (230 degrees C), reduce heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and continue baking for about 45 minutes more, until crust is golden brown. It’s a good practice to place a piece of aluminum foil slightly larger than the pie under the pie plate to catch overflows. Serve warm.

My version:

  3. Brush top of pie with beaten egg.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes at 450 degrees F (230 degrees C), reduce heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and continue baking for about 45 minutes more, until crust is golden brown.

Pie Crust Recipe

In a food processor: Combine 1 1/4 cups flour, 1/8 teaspoon salt and 1/2 cup cold butter or margarine. While processing, add 2 to 4 tablespoons ice water. When dough forms a ball, remove and either roll out for pie or wrap in plastic wrap and chill until ready to use. If you want a baked pie shell, bake at 450 degrees F for 12 to 15 minutes.
