Grandma Ople's Apple Pie

I found this recipe on Basket 411 a week or two ago so I showed it to Andrew since I knew we had apples in our fridge that hadn't been eaten from a few different BB. Andrew instantly wanted me to make it because he loves anything drenched in caramel or caramel sauce! The recipe is super easy and if you cheat like me and use store bought pie crust, it is even easier. ;)

Grandma Ople's Apple Pie


  • 1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 8 Granny Smith apples - peeled, cored and sliced


  1. Melt butter in a sauce pan. Stir in flour to form a paste. Add white sugar, brown sugar and water; bring to a boil. Reduce temperature, and simmer 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, place the bottom crust in your pan. Fill with apples, mounded slightly. Cover with a lattice work of crust. Gently pour the sugar and butter liquid over the crust. Pour slowly so that it does not run off.
  3. Bake 15 minutes at 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), and continue baking for 35 to 45 minutes.

  1. Did it really take 8 apples? I'm not sure how many of the granny smiths I have left. I think I have 4 different kinds of apples right now! I might have to try that recipe.
