This is the dang best apple pie you'll ever eat. Ever. It is absolutely, without a doubt, the best tasting AND easiest homemade goodness on earth. It's guaranteed to bring moans and groans from all who eat it.
I came across the recipe on AllRecipes.com and thought, "What kind of pie would generate 456 positive (5 star) reviews?" Well, Grandma Ople's Apple Pie does of course! And whoever Grandma Ople is, bless her culinary soul for sharing this scrumptious recipe with the rest of the world!
GRANDMA OPLE'S APPLE PIE
- 1 recipe for a double crust 9-inch pie (After countless tries in the past, I've succumbed to relying on Pillsbury for my store-bought crusts)
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup water
- 8 Granny Smith apples - peeled, cored and sliced (I bought large apples and only used 6)
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon (optional)
Meanwhile, place the bottom crust in your pan. Fill with apples, mounded slightly. Sprinkle cinnamon over top of apples. 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.
Bake 15 minutes at 425 degrees. Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees and continue baking for 45 minutes.
