Apple Pie Recipe
Dough and Filling:
- Dough for double crust 9-inch pie (homemade, frozen, or refrigerated)
- ¾ cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Dash salt
- 3 ½ cups peeled, chopped cooking apples
- 1 (16-ounce) jar applesauce
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons butter, chopped into small pieces
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- Dash salt
- 1 tablespoon butter, at room temperature
Preheat oven to 425˚F.
Line a 9-inch pan with half of dough. Combine sugar, flour, cinnamon, and salt in a bowl. Stir in applesauce, and lemon juice. Spoon apple mixture into pie pan and dot with butter. Cut remaining crust into strips; arrange in a lattice design over top of pie. For crunch topping, combine flour, sugar, and salt in a bow. Using a fork, cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle over top of crust. Bake for 10 minutes, then reduce heat to 350˚F and continue to bake for about 45 minutes, or until crust and topping are golden brown.
