Northern California in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada is apple country. During these days of fall weather and terrible traffic as out of towners descend on us hill folks to participate in apple related activities, I thought it would be appropriate to whip up an easy apple pie at home. This way, I can enjoy the fruits whilst avoiding the crowd. This particular recipe is really easy and everyone seems to enjoy it. I hope you give it a try.

Northern California in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada is apple country. During these days of fall weather and terrible traffic as …
- 2 pie crusts from scratch or store bought
- 7-9 apples granny smith or similar sturdy types.. peeled, cored, sliced
- 1 stick butter
- 1/4 cup ap flour
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line the pie pan with one crust and pile in your sliced apples. They should mound about 3" above the top of the pan.
- Meanwhile, in a small sauce pan melt the butter. Once melted, stir in the flour and incorporate well on low heat for about 2 minutes. Next add all of the remaining ingredients and continue on low heat for about 10-15 minutes while you complete the next step.
- Make a lattice top for your pie by rolling out your dough on a lightly floured surface. Roll the dough into a round shape big enough to cover the top of the pie. Cut the dough into 1" strips. Apply your lattice by weaving the strips on top of the pie.
- By now, the sugar mixture should be good and bubbly.. make sure to stir it good and then slowly pour it all over the top of the pie. There should be some on raw crust and it should be going into all the nooks and crannies in-between.
- Bake the pie at 400 for 20 minutes. Then, reduce heat to 350 and back for another 40 minutes or until the apples are good and tender. Enjoy!
