1 Stick Of Butter
6 Tbsp Flour (for thickening)
2 Pie Crusts
1 Cup Sugar and Sugar To Sprinkle On Crust

This is the most time consuming aspect of making this pie!!
This will seem like a ridulously insane amount of apples.
It is.Place pie crust in pie plate.
We will make this pie in three layers.
Add 1/3 of the apples.
This recipe is so simple your kids can help.
If you consider yourself a novice baker you now have no excuse!
As you’ll see, my 5-year old makes this entire pie!!
Add about 1/3 of the butter
Add cinnamon (as much or as little as you like).
Add 1/3 of the sugar.
Sprinkle 2 Tbsp of flour.
Repeat these steps for Layer Two…
And then do the same for Layer Three…
This is what the pie will look like after Layer Three has been added.
You definitely will get the “Biggest Bang For Your Buck” when it comes to apples in this pie!!
Cover pie with crust.
It probably won’t fit.
No worries. =)
You will have to stretch it a bit.
Use water to adhere pie crusts together.
This will hopefully keep the butter from oozing out during the baking process!
Adhere pie crusts.
Gently stretch the top pie crust so that it meets up with the bottom crust.
Using your fingers wet the pie crust edges and press together.
Water acts as a glue.
Brush the top of the pie with milk.
A pastry brush works great!
Sprinkle with sugar.
Or douse with sugar.
Whichever you prefer
Vent with a knife.
Make pretty designs.
Sign your name if you wish.
Cover with tin foil.
Place on a cookie sheet also covered with tin foil.
Bake with tinfoil on pie for 30 minutes.
Take off tin foil.
Continue to bake pie for an additional 40 minutes.
Or until apples are bubbling.
F.Y.I. I love Vanilla Bean.
Thanks for the inspiration, Jill!
