    I was so excited. Rarely do any of my first attempts at a new recipe turn out like this! I usually throw them in the trash. :shock:

    I am weird I know. I don't like the apples in apple pie. I love the crust and gooey stuff though. I pick all the apples out. I have to tell you DD, that looks so good. Will you share the recipe for the crust please? Great job dear. :wub::wave:

    Ok...here's the recipe I lifted off allrecipes.com

    a few tips...........different from the recipe.
    1. DO add sugar to apples--I'd say about 1/2 to 1 cup--give or take-depending on how sweet you like your pie.
    2. DO add spices to apples
    3. Pour the butter/sugar mixture VERY slowly over crust and down in between holes in lattice.
    4. Place pie pan on parchment paper covered cookie sheet. You'll thank me later.

    INGREDIENTS (Nutrition)

    • 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 Granny Smith apples - peeled, 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; 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 (220 degrees C). Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), and continue baking for 35 to 45 minutes.
