Apples: This recipe calls for eight small apples.

Butter and flour: The filling starts with butter and all-purpose flour cooked into a paste.

Sugars: A blend of white and brown sugar creates the perfect sweet flavor with a hint of warmth.

Pie crust: Use a store-bought double crust pie pastry


Make the filling: On the stove, make a paste with flour and butter. Add the sugar and water and bring to a boil. Simmer, then remove from heat.

Assemble the pie: Press one crust into a pie plate. Place the sliced apples on the bottom crust. Use the top crust to make a lattice crust according to the recipe below. Pour the butter-sugar mixture over the lattice crust.

Bake the pie: Bake the pie in a preheated oven until the apples are soft and the crust is golden brown.
