Caramel Apple Pie

2 Pillsbury pie crusts (or homemade)

½ cup unsalted butter

3 T all purpose flour

¼ cup water

½ cup white sugar

½ cup packed brown sugar

8 granny smith apples, peeled, cored, and sliced

Preheat oven to 425°, melt putter in sauce pan, and stir in flour to form a paste. Add water and sugars. Bring to a boil. Reduce temp and let simmer.

Place bottom crust in pan. Fill with apples mounded slightly. Cover with lattice work of top crust. Gently pour butter/sugar liquid over the crust. Pour slowly so it doesn’t run off.

Bake 15 minutes in preheated oven. Reduce temp to 350°. Continue baking 35-45 minutes until apples are soft.
