Stolen, from elsewhere. Havent’ tried this yet.

Note: research this recipe


  • 1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie (see my pie crust interpretation)
  • 0.5 cup (113g) unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 0.25 cup water
  • 0.5 cup (75g) white sugar
  • 0.5 cup (75g) packed brown sugar
  • 8 Granny Smith apples
  • 1.5 tsp cinnamon

Step 1

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Melt the butter in a saucepan. Whisk in the flour to form a paste. Add water, white sugar and brown sugar, and bring to a boil. Reduce temperature and let simmer.

Step 2

Peel, remove cores and thinly slice 7 cups of apples and place them in a large bowl. Sprinkle the top with 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon and toss to combine. Pour the sauce over the apples and stir to coat the apple slices.

Step 3

Sprinkle your work surface with flour and roll out bottom pie crust to a 12” diameter circle. Wrap it around your rolling pin to transfer it to the 9” pie plate.

Step 4

Add apple mixture, mounding slightly in the center and being careful not to get the filling on the edges which would make it difficult to seal.

Step 5

Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Continue baking for 35 to 45 minutes, until apples are soft.
