  1. Melt butter in a sauce pan. Stir in flour to form a paste. Add white sugar, brown sugar and water; bring to a boil. Reduce temperature, and simmer 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, place the bottom crust in your pan. Fill with apples, mounded slightly. Cover with a lattice work crust. Gently pour the sugar and butter liquid over the crust. Pour slowly so that it does not run off.
  3. Bake 15 minutes at 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), and continue baking for 35 to 45 minutes.

Few notes to those having performance problems with this pie: Use a variety of apples, Granny Smith plus one or two sweeter types of apples (McIntosh is good)if you're finding it to be too tart ...

This pie was amazing. I did use the full recommended amount of apples as I was making a deep dish 9" pie. I did change some things, however. I cut the apples up into a bowl, added 2 tsp. cinn...
