The look on my sweet daughters face was priceless when she realized what I was making. To say she was pleased would be an understatement. The rest of the kids were pretty excited as well. I loved listening to them decide what to do with the "extra" pies since there wouldn't be enough for everyone to have 2. I tried telling them that there wouldn't be any extras, because they were all Mom's. I guess I need to work on my poker face, because they didn't believe me for even a split second. Either my poker face is really bad, or they are really smart. I think I like the second option the best.
1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie (I used my Perfect Pie Crust)
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons water
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
4 apples - peeled, cored, and sliced
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (220 degrees C). Melt the butter in a saucepan. Stir in flour to form a paste and cook for 1 minute. Add water, white sugar and brown sugar, and bring to a boil. Add apples and return to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and let simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Divide dough into 10 pieces and roll each piece into a circle (mine were about 6 inches). Place about 1/4 cup of the apple filling in the center of each dough circle. Fold the dough in half over the filling and press the edges to seal. Place on an un-greased baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes. Reduce the heat to 350 and bake for an additional 20 minutes.
