Apple Pie

I got a new pie pan a few days ago, and I just had to try it out. Then my mom came with a big bag of apples from the supermarket, so, yeah, I had to make apple pie.

First make the dough. Mix the flour, salt, butter, water.



Spread in pan and put in the fridge. Then start with filling. Mix the sugars, butter, cinnamon, water and flour over heat. Bring to a boil.

Set that aside, then peel the apples and arrange them on the prepared pan.


Pour the sugar mixture over it, an with the left over dough make the lattice decorations.

And bake!



Double Crust Pastry Ingredients:
2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup butter
6 tablespoons cold water
1. In a bowl, combine flour and salt. Cut in butter until dough is crumbly. Add the cold water and mix until a ball is formed. Divide dough so that one half is bigger than the other.
2. Roll out the larger ball and transfer into a 9″ pie pan. Roll out the second ball and cut long vertical pieces to form the lattice cover.
3. Set in fridge while preparing the apple pie filling.
Filling Ingredients:
1/2 cup unsalted butter
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup water
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup white sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
4 Granny Smith apples (peeled, cored and sliced)
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Melt butter in saucepan and stir in flour to form a paste. Add water, cinnamon, white sugar and brown sugar, and bring to a boil. Reduce temperature and let simmer.
2. Fill lined pastry pan with sliced apples. Pour sugar mixture over the top and cover with lattice pastry crust.
3. Bake 15 minutes in preheated oven. Reduce temperature to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Continue baking for 35 to 45 minutes, until apples are soft.
