Apple pie is one of those dishes that just about everybody enjoys, no matter how picky of an eater you may be. It’s the king of pies, in a way, and for solid reasons; you simply cannot beat a beautiful, golden-brown, flaky and warm slice of hot apple pie, and I don’t care what your argument is.
Apple pie is arguably a dish best served when the weather cools off, and with Fall around the corner, I thought I would do a little research to find a recipe to create a truly perfect apple pie. This particular recipe comes from allrecipes.com.
“Apple Pie by Grandma Ople
- 1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie
- ½ cup unsalted butter
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- ¼ cup water
- ½ cup white sugar
- ½ cup packed brown sugar
- 8 Granny Smith apples – peeled, cored and sliced
- Step 1: Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Melt the butter in a saucepan. Stir in flour to form a paste. Add water, white sugar and brown sugar, and bring to a boil. Reduce temperature and let simmer.
- Step 2: Place the bottom crust in your pan. Fill with apples, mounded slightly. Cover with a lattice work crust. Gently pour the sugar and butter liquid over the crust. Pour slowly so that it does not run off.
- Step 3: 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,” the recipe states.
This recipe has some rather promising reviews online, hence why I picked it to share with all of you.
If you’re feeling a little adventurous, allow me to recommend topping your slice of apple pie off with melted, sharp cheddar cheese. It may sound bizarre if you haven’t tried it, but trust me when I say it is life-changing.
