My mom's pie crust (I will post that at a later date.)
Filling ingredients :
6 cups apples (golden delicious, usually about 4-6 medium)
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar + ~1/4 c. more later (to taste, sometimes the corn starch can be over powering)
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour + a couple of T. to thicken (I will eliminate the extra T later in favor of cornstarch).
1 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon or about 3/4 t. Penezes Cinnamon (It's really strong)
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla
6-7 tablespoons heavy cream
4 tablespoons butter
3 T. cornstarch mixed with cold milk and pour into hot sauce, quickly
Directions: Make your pie crust. Separate into two portions. Roll out the first part and make the bottom crust and put it in the pie plate. Put the other portion in the fridge while you make the filling.
Now take the second portion of pie crust and roll it out and top the pie. Pinch the edges to make seal the crust however you so desire. Vent the top by cutting small holes in the top. Brush the top with egg white and sprinkle with raw sugar (the big crystals.) Bake at 450 for 15 minutes. Reduce heat toReduce heat to 350 degrees F and bake 45 minutes longer.
Enjoy! Great with icecream and or whipped cream :)
