Apple Pie~*

Finally Apple Pie!!! It is best fresh from oven, O-M-G I couldn't stop at just one piece. I peronally favor Gala apple so I used this variety instead of Granny Smith as suggestede in an original recipe (here).

(Ingredients/Directions via, Healthier Apple Pie by Grandma Ople)
1 recipepastry for a 9 inch double crust pie
1/4 cup unsalted butter
3 tablespoonsall-purpose flour
1/4 cup water
1/2 cuppacked brown sugar
8 Granny Smith apples - peeled, cored and sliced (I only used 5 Gala apples)
  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 and brown sugar, and bring to a boil. Reduce temperature and let simmer.
  2. 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. (I didin't pour the sugar/butter liquid over the crust since I didn't have enough. I just brushed the top crust with egg white)
  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.

  4. OMG! It looked so good!! You know what, I'm going to bug my bf tonight to have him make one soon. LOL! Ok, maybe I'll try to be a good house-wife by helping out with cutting the apples then... I'm just so bad at the house-wife department.

  7. You have been very busy too.
    You spend less time on your blog and more time in the kitchen whipping up lots of delicious food. I've been away from blogger for a while. I was busy trying to finish up all my work before I went for a holiday to Italy. And I'm trying to catch up with replying to comments and visiting blogs bit by bit when I'm more energetic to switch on my lappy.

    BTW, you've got a great blog! Would you like to follow each other?
