Apple Pie



I found the method for preparing this pie in an old Gold Medal Flour cookbook of my Mom's. The ingredients go together a little differently, but you end up with a classic apple pie: sweet, juicy, tender apples wrapped up in a golden crust.


Apple Pie

Ingredients:
1  9" double pie crust (my favorite pie crust recipe)

For pie filling:

7 to 8 apples (about 3.5 lbs), peeled, cored, and sliced (I used a mixture of Granny Smith, Jonagold, and Braeburn)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 cup butter
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup apple juice (or water)
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon (or apple pie spice)
1/4 teaspoon salt

For top of pie:

1 egg or 1 egg white, lightly beaten
2 teaspoons sugar
scant 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon



Directions:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a large bowl, sprinkle apples with lemon juice and toss to cover. Melt the butter in a large saucepan. Stir in flour to form a paste. Add juice, sugars, cinnamon, and salt; mix well and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer for 3 minutes or until thickened slightly. Stir in apples, mixing well.

Place bottom crust in pie plate. Pour apples into crust, mounding slightly in the middle. Cut slits in top crust and place over top of pie. Tuck top crust edge under bottom crust edges and crimp decoratively. Brush top of pie with egg or egg white. Mix remaining sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over top of pie. Place pie on foil-covered cookie sheet to catch any drips.


Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes, then reduce heat to 350 degrees and continue to bake for about 35 to 45 more minutes, or until apples are done and pie is golden brown. Place on wire rack and let cool completely before slicing so that the syrupy juices can set.

  5. It does look yummy and that is certainly a different way to make the filling. I will definitely have to try this (when it cools off and I can turn on the oven again!)

  11. I love the way you set up the photo with the flag in the background. Apple pie is one of my favorite desserts. I have a "no oven rule" going on right now, but you are tempting me to break it.

    1. Barbara, you are so right- I can't resist something fresh-baked right out of the oven (like your strawberry chocolate chip cookies, maybe?). I caught a little grief for posting something that required the oven to be turned on, but it's worth it! :)

  31. That looks devine! Haven't tried making an apple pie yet. But, this looks so good! Normally, I just buy Mrs. Smith's when it comes to apple pie. Somehow, I feel like I may have an apple pie baker inside of me.

  35. can this pie be made and then put into freezer to be baked at a later time?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Lisa, that's a great question, but I sure don't know. I've never tried it. Off the top of my head, it's liquid-y enough before baking (thickens as it cooks and then cools) that you might not have very good results. However, if you get brave and try it, we'd love to know how it turns out! :) Thank you for coming by!
