Apple Pie

My apologies for not making the Banana Coconut Ice Cream Pie. I won't lie. I didn't even look at the recipe for this week's TWD. Just didn't have it in me. It looks like delicious though. Don't know how well it would have gone over in this house because of the coconut but it still looks like a great dessert. Make sure to check out the recipe on Spike Bakes.
Instead, I kind of made an apple pie. I used store bought pie crusts but made the filling myself. The pie was really good, but I cut the apples too thin and sprinkled the top with turbinado sugar so the pie tasted more like an apply pastry than your typical apple pie. Can't complain much when served with ice cream :)

Source: All Recipes (here)

1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie
1/2 cup unsalted butter
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
8 Granny Smith apples - peeled, cored and sliced

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). 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.

Place the bottom crust in your pan. Fill with apples, mounded slightly. 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 in the preheated oven. Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Continue baking for 35 to 45 minutes, until apples are soft.

Mmm, I'll take a slice of that! Apple pie might be my favorite pie, which is dangerous for me.
