I suppose everyone believes that their grandmother can make the perfect apple pie and mine was no exception. Here is a recipe for her apple pie.

INGREDIENTS
1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie
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 Orchard apples – peeled, cored and sliced
A dash of cinnamon

DIRECTIONS

1. 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.

2. 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.

3. Bake 15 minutes at 425 degrees F. Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees, and continue baking for 35 to 45 minutes.

4. For added flavor top off your piece of pie with some great vanilla ice cream and then sit back and enjoy!
