Hot Apple Pie

The frost is on my pumpkins outside and the heat has been turned on …. sigh…….yup winter is making its way up the mountain! slowly, but steadily….

Was a great day for Earl Grey Tea and Apple Pie……..

Now start the fire……grab a wool blanket and find that book you wanted to read three years ago, turn the phone off and put QVC on just in case something like homemade pie crusts come on…….



1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie    (Or use Pillsbury Pie Crusts like I did – you know I’m deathly afraid of making crust!!)

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



  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 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.

To make the cut-outs use a cutter, I have leaf cutters by Williams Sonoma….or make your own, doesn’t matter how they look – as long as      you made it I’m sure it will be fabulous!
