So, without further ado, here is "Apple Pie by Grandma Ople", as found on allrecipes.com.
1 recipe pastry for a 9 inche double crust pie (click here for the easy recipe I used)
1/2 c. unsalted butter
3 TBS all-purpose flour
1/4 c. water
1/2 c. white sugar
1/2 c. packed brown sugar
8 granny smith apples (we used some variety of small red apples the first time, just because that's what we got in our basket).
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Melt the butter in a saucepan. Stir in flour to form a paste. Add water, white sugar 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 crust (I learned how to do that here). Gently pour the sugar and butter liquid over the crust. Pour slowly so that it does not run off the sides.
3. Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees. Continue baking for 35-40 minutes, until apples are soft.
