The BEST Apple Pie EVER!!!



Tired of your ordinary Apple Pie? Well this delicious Apple Pie adds a twist to the apple classic. Topped with a beautiful lattice topping, this will surely be a huge hit at your next get together. At the bottom I have also included a fail proof pie crust recipe. It is so simple, yet Soooo tasty!

Ingredients:

1 pie crust; See below for recipe
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
1 tsp Vanilla
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 teaspoons nutmeg
1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
1/2 teaspoon Salt
8 apples, (I like to use all different kinds in my pie), cored and sliced.

Directions:

1. Melt butter in a sauce pan. Stir in flour to form a paste. Add white sugar, brown sugar and water, along with Vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice, and salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce temperature, and simmer for 5 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, place the bottom crust in your pan. Fill with apples, mounded slightly. Cover with 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 heat to 350 degrees F, and continue baking for 35 to 45 minutes.


Pie Crust:

2 cups Flour
1 cup Shortening
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp. Baking Powder
1/3 cup Milk
1 Egg
Directions:

Mix first 4 ingredients with wire whips. Beat Egg and Milk together in a separate bowl. Mix together just until flour is mixed in. Remember, to make this recipe work Don't mix it too much, it makes the pie crust tough. Split dough into two pieces. Flour counter and roll out into a circle.

Ask if you have any questions! Good Luck!
