This one is loaded with apples. Now the process is a little different and it'll surprise you but you're going to love the results. So let's get started. We'll start with the sauce for the filling. Place a medium saucepan over medium heat and melt an eight tablespoons of unsalted butter. Stir in three tablespoons of flour and let that simmer for about a minute whisking constantly. Next, whisk in 1/4 cup of water and 3/4 cup of sugar. Bring that to a boil then reduce the heat and continue simmering for about three minutes stirring occasionally. This sauce is the secret ingredient. It literally takes less than five minutes but will transform your pie. When it's done, it'll have a light caramel sauce consistency. Take it off the heat and let it cool while you prep your apples. You'll need six to seven Granny Smith apples or you can use your favorite tart crisp apple. All of the apples together weighed two and a quarter pounds. Peel all of your apples then cut them in a half and remove the course. To remove the course you can either use a small paring knife or an apple coring tool, or you can use a melon baller like this one and I'll leave a link to this in the notes. Once the apples are all peeled and cored thinly slice them. You should get about seven cups of thinly sliced apples. Transfer the apples to a large mixing bowl and sprinkle the top with one and a half teaspoons of ground cinnamon. Stir to evenly coat the apples with cinnamon. Next, add all of that sauce that you made earlier and make sure you get every last drop. Stir in the sauce to coat the apples and I'm telling you it's so worth it to spend the extra five minutes to make this sauce, for the most incredible apple pie filling. I'm using our favorite homemade easy all butter pie crust that I've been chilling in the refrigerator. This pie crust is incredible and I will leave a link to the video tutorial in the notes. Sprinkle your work surface generously with flour and roll out your first pie crust. Roll that first crust to about a 12 inch diameter circle. If you find the dough is sticking to your rolling pin, sprinkle on just a little more flour. The easiest way to transfer this into the pie pan is to wrap it around your rolling pin gently and use a food scraper to loosen the dough in case it gets stuck to the surface. Now simply unwrap it into a clean pie plate. Mold that gently into the plate and you should have a little bit of dough hanging over the edges. Add all of the apple mixture mounting it slightly in the center. And be careful not to get the feeling on the edges of the dough which will make it difficult to seal. Set that aside, then roll the second crust on a floured surface, but this time just to about an 11 inch round circle. I found that if you push the edges in like this, it'll roll into a much more even circle, which is important because we're going to be making strips out of this for the lattice topping. Also, if you're curious, this is called a French rolling pin, and it is my favorite. I will leave a link to this in the notes. Using your favorite pizza cutter, cut 10 even thickness strips. Making a lattice topping is easier than you think. Take one of the long strips from the center and place it across the middle of your pie. The first five strips should be in one direction across your pie with the longer strips in the center and the shorter ones towards the edges. Peel back the second and fourth strips and place one large strip down the center. Now peel back the alternating strips and add another strip of dough. Continue doing this on the right and then the left until all of your lattice is complete. Place any remaining scraps of dough around the edges of the pan where needed. Tuck the excess pie dough into the pan around the edges. Once all of the edges are tucked in, you can crimp or flute the edges of the pie dough. And this process is so easy but will make your pie look super fancy. Push the dough in with one finger on one hand and pinch around it with two fingers on the other hand. Pat the edges down slightly so that they don't brown too much in the oven. Next beat together one egg and a tablespoon of sugar and brush that egg wash generously over all of the surface of the dough. This will add a beautiful color to your pie while it's baking. Transfer that to the center of a preheated oven and bake at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes. Without opening the door, reduce the heat to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and continue baking another 45 minutes or until the apples are soft and the filling is bubbling through the vents at the top. Oh, pie. Sweet apple pie. You will not believe how good my kitchen smells right now. And once this comes out of the oven, you want to give it at least an hour to rest, you want those apple juices to thicken up. So that way when you cut into it, it doesn't slide all over the place and you won't burn your mouth. That's important. Been there, done that. Okay, so we're gonna let this rest. (upbeat music) All right, our pie has been resting, it's just barely warm. And honestly that's the hardest part is the waiting because you just want to jump right in and do the taste test. But that's exactly what we're going to do right now because we have been patient for long enough. Okay, so big slice for me, here we go. Okay, that is a big piece. But that doesn't surprise you, right? You've watched enough of our videos. Okay, here we go. Yum! And you can see the slice holds together. It's not sliding apart, this filling is amazing. Okay, lets get that on to our plate. I'm really excited. This is the pie that everyone needs to make this autumn. It looks fantastic. Okay, cool. Let me taste it first. That is worth every second. Fantastic. Just that little bit of cinnamon really amps up the apple flavor. And I love this sweet tart apples, they're perfectly sweetened. This is wonderful. And to be very honest, I love the crust just as much as I love the filling. I mean it's flaky, buttery, really easy to make. And make sure that you watch our video on how to make this crust.
