Like any pie, this one is only as good as its crust. If you're like me and loathe rolling out a pie crust, you can pick up a pre-made pie crust in the refrigerated section of the grocery store.
1 whole unbaked pie crust (top and bottom)
6-8 Granny Smith apples
1/2 cup salted butter
3 T flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup water
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Unroll the bottom pie crust and place it in the pie pan.
Peel and slice the apples, and place them in the pie crust. If you want a traditional apple pie, leave the slices larger. If you want more of an applesauce consistency, slice the apples very thin on a mandolin slicer.
Cover the apples with a lattice crust.
Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour to thicken. then add white sugar, brown sugar and water, stirring constantly. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and let simmer for about 3 minutes.
Pour sugar mixture over pie, filling in space between apples.
Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes, then reduce temperature to 350 degrees and bake for 40 minutes, or until golden brown.
