How to make it

  • Have your pie crust ready first. See Mama's Easy Pie Crust.
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.(220 degrees C).
  • Melt butter in large saucepan.
  • Stir in flour to make a paste. Add apple juice, white sugar and brown sugar; bring to a boil.
  • Reduce temperature and let simmer for about 2 minutes or so.
  • Add vanilla & cinnamon to the mixture.
  • If you have cut or sliced the apples, cover them with lemon juice so they won't turn brown.
  • Toss them around with the lemon juice in a bowl to cover evenly. Add the apples to the butter mixture in the saucepan.
  • Have your crust ready in the pie pan. It's a good idea to put this pie on a cookie sheet lined with foil or parchment paper since the pie could bubble over in the oven.
  • Carefully put the apples in the pie crust lined pan. You could put a lattice top over the pie or cut out cute shapes with a cookie cutter to place over the apples.
  • Whatever you feel like placing on top of pie.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes.
  • Reduce temperature to 350 degrees F. (175 degrees C) Continue to bake for 45 minutes, sheilding pie after 10 minutes .. so it doesn't get too brown around the edges.

    Thank you sooooo much!! My mama used to put her pies in the top oven. With the pilot light on, it would keep the pie "warm" and it always tasted fresh out of the oven!! She also would make a glaze out of powdered sugar and water that she would drizzle over the top. I sure do miss her.

    I posted the picture for you Jett - I warned you that I had some "difficulties" getting the top crust on (it tore)...hey, I'm still learning this whole homemade pie crust thing...and FYI, your pie crust held up BEAUTIFULLY on day 2 (my true test of a good crust - can it remain flaky as it sits for a day or two?).

    I made this today, with Jett's pie crust recipe, and all I can say is: MAKE THIS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! Oh my goodness - the combo of white and brown sugar gave the filling an almost caramel like taste, the apple juice sweetened it up even more, and the tart Granny Smiths were the perfect offset to the sweet syrup filling. You HAVE to make this - just phenomenal. My husband can't quit raving about it! (my top crust broke as I was trying to put it on the pie, so my pictures didn't turn out "pretty", but if you want me to send it to you, let me know!)

    I like the apple juice addition - this sounds sooooo good...thanks for sharing it with us (and I have to check out your pie crust recipe now, as I'm trying to learn to make my own instead of always using the refrigerator crusts...nothing like homemade!).
