1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie (store bought works)
1/2 cup unsalted butter
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup water MINUS 1 tblsp
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
6 apples - peeled, cored and sliced & spritzed with lemon juice
1 tblsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp apple pie spice
1 egg white
Preheat oven to 350.
Melt the butter in a saucepan & whisk in the flour to form a paste. Add water, white sugar and brown sugar, and bring to a boil. Then add the vanilla, cinn, nutmeg, cloves, allspice & apple pie spice- reduce temperature and let simmer.
Place the bottom crust in your pan (9in glass pie pan works best) & brush with the egg white. Fill with apples, mounded slightly. Pour the above mixture over the apples (reserving about 1/4 cup to brush over the top crust). Brush the top crust (lattice or full) with a little more egg white & the reserved syrup mix.
Bake on middle rack for about 50-55 min
