Servings: 8Cook Time: 50-60 minutes
6 tart apples, peeled and sliced
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 T flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 T vinegar
4 chunks butter
2 (9-inch) pie crusts
Peel and slice apples. Soak apples in water with 1 tablespoon lemon juice to prevent darkening.
Mix sugar, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, salt and vinegar in a large bowl. Drain water off apples and mix with spices.
Dump apples into a 9-inch pie crust. Place about 4 chunks of butter on top of apple pie filling. Place other crust on top and seal edges. Poke a few holes in the top crust or do lattice-style crust before placing in oven. Cut a few long strips of tin foil to cover the edges of your pie to prevent them from burning. Remove these strips of foil during the last 10 to 15 minutes of baking.
Bake at 400 degrees for 50 to 60 minutes.

My brother (the apple pie king) taught me a tip for apple pie….cook in microwave until the filling is nice and bubbly, then put in the oven only to brown up the crust. This cuts down on oven time and helps make a nice flaky crust.
Just thought I’d share 🙂

I do that and it works! I do that will all fruit pies. I cook the filling on the stove until its thick, then pour into crust and bake until the crust is done. It prevents dark crust with crunchy filling. I bake the pie at 350F for about 50 mins. No more high temps for 15 mins first just to heat the filling.
