Directions

  1. Heat oven to 400°F.

  5. Roll out remaining ball of dough into 11-inch circle. Cut out 10 (1/2-inch) strips with sharp knife or pastry wheel. Place 5 strips, 1 inch apart, across filling in pie pan. Weave remaining 5 strips at right angles to strips already in place. Trim ends. Fold trimmed edge of bottom crust over strips; build up an edge. Crimp or flute edge. Brush strips with 1 tablespoon melted butter; sprinkle with 1 teaspoon sugar. Cover edge of crust with 2-inch strip aluminum foil.

I've been making this pie for more than 15 yrs, and I always got so much complement. I tend to reduce the amount of brown sugar and use the Granny smith. People love to taste the actual apples.

Was the best apple pie I have made. I used Granny Smith and Idared apples for my filling. I fudged up the crust recipe and ran out of dough near the end, but made it work. ! Taking the rest of my pie to work to see what the people there think.

An absolutely wonderful pie. As can be imagined, the flavors meld together perfectly. It was a hit with all of my company.
