Ingredients

  • 1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup water minus 1 tablespoon
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 8 Granny Smith apples - peeled cored and sliced

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Melt the butter in a saucepan. Stir in flour to form a paste. Add water, vanilla, white sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg and bring to a soft boil. Reduce temperature to low and let simmer.
  • Prep the double-layer crust of your choice ahead of time. You can use a lattice top, or a full crust top with decorative slices cut out of it. Place the bottom crust in your pie pan.
  • Toss sliced apples with 2/3rds of caramel sauce. Place apples in the pie plate. Cover with preferred top crust. Pour or brush-on the remaining 1/3rd of the caramel sauce over the top of the crust.
  • Bake 35-45 minutes in the pre-heated oven until apples are soft. Remove and cool before placing in the refrigerator.

Notes

*I brushed my bottom pie crust with egg white to ensure it didn't get soggy. The crust was delicious!
