I made this huge delicious pie for Thanksgiving but it would be great on any holiday or special occasion.

I used a 10-12 inch Pie tin that I had saved from a previous pie purchase @ Sam's Club. I used a bit of a different technique in putting it together & it worked out just great.

My husband enjoyed it so much I will not mention how many pieces he had once it cooled. If you love Apple Pie you will love this recipe.

You can top it with your favorite Ice Cream, or eat it plain, you will not be disappointed any way you slice it. Give it a try, it's a great dessert any time of the year.

Ingredients

1
double crust refrigerated pie crust (or home made)
1 large
egg
1 Tbsp
water
2 Tbsp
white decorators sugar crystals (optional) or use regular sugar
7 medium
granny smith apples, peeled cored & sliced thinly
3 lb
red or golden delicious, gala apples,jona gold, peeled cored & sliced thinly
1 c
splenda brown sugar, firmly packed
1 1/4 c
regular splenda granular
3 Tbsp
lemon juice
1 Tbsp
apple pie spice ( or use 2 tsp cinnamon & 1 tsp nutmeg)
1/2 tsp
salt
5 Tbsp
wondra flour or use corn starch
3 Tbsp
butter

Directions Step-By-Step

1
PREHEAT THE OVEN TO 425 DEGREES F. Wash core and peel the apples then slice thinly and place in a very large bowl. Alternate both varieties as you peel and slice, that way they will be evenly mixed together. Drizzle with the lemon juice, this prevents them from turning brown.
2
Add both sugars to a medium size bowl, then add the spices and salt, add the Wondra flour, then stir till it is blended well. You may want to divide the sugar mixture in half to have enough for each layer of the pie.
3
Now place the first pie crust into the pie tin, Now spread a layer of the sliced apples in bottom of pie tin. Sprinkle with sugar mixture. Repeat this step at least 2 or 3 additional times, alternating with the sugar mixture each time.
4
Finish with any remaining sugar mixture. Now dot the top of the pie with half of the butter.
5
Cover with top crust, sealing the top crust to the bottom crust. Then flute the edges. Make 6 or more slits in tip crust, this allows the steam to escape as the pie bakes.
6
Create an egg wash by beating the egg with 1 tablespoon of water then brush over the top of pie crust. This allows the crust to cook to an even golden brown color. Sprinkle top crust with white sparkling sugar,Optional if desired, or can use regular sugar.
7
Now line a shallow baking pan with aluminum foil and place pie in pan to catch any potential drips while pie is baking. Place in preheated 425 degree F. oven and bake for 15 minutes.
8
THEN LOWER TEMPERATURE TO 350 DEGREES F. for an additional 50 to 55 minutes or until pie is hot bubbly and golden brown on top. Remove from oven and allow to cool COMPLETELY before cutting and serving. SOMETIMES YOU JUST CANNOT WAIT! SMILE
