Introduction: Apple Pie #HMS2020
In this Instructables, I am going to be showing you how to make Apple Pie from scratch under 2 hours. In this recipe i'm using vanilla extract and, cinnamon to add a little bit more flavor to the pie. And i'm using a medal pie pan because, I don't recommend the foil pie pan because it's smaller. For the pie crust, I used Pillsbury pie crust but you can also use a different kind.
1/2 cup of unsalted butter
3 tablespoons of all purpose flour
1/4 cup of water
1/2 cup of white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
8 (or less) apples- peeled and sliced
1/2 Vanilla extract (optional)
1/2 Cinnamon (optional)
Step 1: Prepare the Oven
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit
Step 2: Peel, Core, Slice
Peel the apples. Then evenly slice the apples into very thin slices (1/8 inches). For this pie I sliced/peeled 6 apples depending on how pig your pie is. Make sure you have enough apples to fill in the crust.
Step 3: Prepare Crust
Use 1 roll of the pie crust and place it on the bottom of the pan. Make sure you are putting the pie crust in gently because the dough is very fragile.
Step 4: Creating the Pie
Put the sliced apples on top of the crust in the pan to form a mount.Make sure it's higher than the pan.
Step 5: Making the Sauce
Turn your heat to medium low heat in a small sauce pan to melt your butter. Stir in flour to form a paste. Add water, white and brown sugar, cinnamon (optional), vanilla extract (optional), and bring to a boil reduce temperature and let simmer
Step 6: Creating the Top Crust
Take your pie crust and it into 1 inch strips and form a lattice crust on top of your mount of apples.
Step 7: Saucing the Pie
Gently pour the sauce (sugar and butter) over the crust. Pour slowly so that it doesn't run off.
Step 8: Baking the Pie
Place the pie in the oven for 15 minutes then reduce the temperature to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and bake it for 40 minutes.
Step 9: Cool Down
Remove the pie from the oven and let sit for 30 minutes. Then you have Apple Pie!
Step 10: Conclusion
If I was to remake the apple pie I would make my apples a little more thicker because when it’s very thin it’s very soft. And I would also use a pie pan because I couldn't find a metal pie pan so, I used a cake pan but i'm pretty sure it'll still taste the same.
