Apple Pie

Well this morning at 8:45 am I decided to make an Apple pie, I had to be in Church by ten so it was going to have to be a fast easy recipe. Now it helps I happen to live on the church grounds so I could pop it in the oven and then run back over and check it since it had to be turned down in 15 minutes. This was a really quick and easy pie to make and it was really good.
1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch
double crust pie
1/2 cup unsalted butter
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
8 Granny Smith apples - (I used 4 Granny Smith and 4 Pippin)
peeled, cored and sliced

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Melt the butter in a saucepan. Stir in flour to form a paste. Add water, white sugar and brown sugar, and bring to a boil. Reduce temperature and let simmer.
Place the bottom crust in your pan. Fill with apples, mounded slightly. Cover with a lattice work of crust. Gently pour the sugar and butter liquid over the crust. Pour slowly so that it does not run off. ( I did not have the time to make the lattice so I just poured most of the liquid over the apples and covered with another top crust and brushed the rest of the liquid over the top crust.)
Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Continue baking for 35 to 45 minutes, until apples are soft.
