• 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 3 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. Baking Spice
  • 8 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 2 (9-inch) pie crust dough pieces, homemade or store-bought


Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Melt butter in a saucepan. Stir in flour to form a paste. Add water, white sugar, brown sugar, and Baking Spice; bring to a boil then reduce heat and let simmer.

Meanwhile, place one of the pie dough pieces in the bottom and up the sides of a pie pan. Fill with apples to make a mound. Using the second pie dough piece, cover apples with a lattice top, or use a whole dough piece with several wide slits cut into it. You want holes in the top crust to be big enough to pour the butter-sugar liquid into the apple filling. Pinch the top and bottom crusts together to seal.

Gently pour butter-sugar liquid into the apple filling and over the crust; pour slowly so that it does not run off. Bake for 15 min. Reduce temperature to 350 degrees and continue baking for 35 to 45 min. until apples are soft. #HolidayPies
