Kids in the Kitchen: Apple Pie



This is quite possibly the easiest and most delicious APPLE PIE RECIPE ever...and, just in time for you to enjoy a couple weeks before Thanksgiving!  So....the background on the recipe (really quick) is that I wanted something delicious for our birthday last month that wasn't cake so Gator (YES MY SEVEN YEAR OLD) made this apple pie.  Today, we made it again! DELISH!!
The INGREDIENTS:

9'' refridgerated pastry crust (2) , 1 stick of butter, 3T flour, 1/4 c water, 1/2 c white sugar, 1/2 c brown sugar, 8 apples - peeled, cored & sliced

The HOW TO:

Simply start this recipe by preparing your apples while you preheat the oven.  Then, take the butter and melt it in a saucepan.  Once melted stir in the flour to thicken.  You'll then add water and both sugars and bring it to a boil.  Reduce heat and let simmer for a short while.  Now, place the crust on the bottom of your glass dish (not greased).   Fill the crust with apples (you'll want it to be a mound of apples since they will shrink up a bit).  Cover the apples with a lattice crust (cut the pie crust into strips and weave).  Then, pour the sugary butter mixture over the crust.  Bake for 15 min at 425F.  Reduce the temp to 350 and continue baking for 40-45 minutes until the apples are soft. You'll want to let this cool a bit before eating!
