Blue Ribbon Recipe
Perfect is right! This apple pie is filled with delicious spiced apples with a caramel glaze. The glaze not only coats the apples, but it's also brushed on the crust turning it a beautiful golden brown when baked. Each bite of this pie is filled with caramelized apples and a flaky spiced crust. It's so delicious and perfect for fall or your holiday dessert table.
Place 1 pie crust in the bottom of pie plate. Unroll second pie crust and cut into 'strips' of pastry.
Melt butter in large saucepan over medium heat.
Add flour and stir together until smooth.
Add white and brown sugar, water, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
Stir together until smooth, simmer for 3-4 mins.
Add apples and toss to coat.
Add coated apples to pie plate; reserve some remaining liquid.
Lay pastry strips over apples in a criss-crossing pattern and press ends to the top edge of bottom pastry. Use the longest pieces for the middle of the pie, and the shorter pieces towards the outside, leaving about 1 inch in between rows.
Crimp the edges closed.
Lightly brush the top of pastry lattice with some remaining sugar syrup mixture.
Drizzle any remaining mixture over the pie allowing it to run down into the apples through the pastry lattice.
Bake at 425 for 15 minutes.
Reduce heat to 350 and bake for another 40 mins.
