1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie
1/2 cup unsalted butter
2 TBL all purpose flour
1 TBL cornstarch
1/4 cup water
1 tsp vanilla
dash of cinnamon
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
6 granny smith apples - peeled, cored and sliced (I used the cheese slicer on my food proccesor to slice the apples)
Preheat oven to 350.
Melt the butter in a saucepan. Stir in flour and cornstarch to form a paste. Add water, vanilla, cinnamon, white sugar and brown sugar, and bring to a boil. Reduce temperature and let simmer.
Place the bottom crust in your pie pan. Mix 3/4 of sauce mixture with apples, and place in crust. Cover with a lattice work crust. Gently pour the remaining sauce mixture over the top of the crust. Bake for an hour, or until the apples are soft.
**I placed a baking sheet on the bottom rack of the oven to catch any drips.
