Introduction

Simple ingredients, the only cheat is the crust. You can make your own crust using a Sparkrecipe but I just thin-out a store bought crust for this one.

Ingredients

    Store-bought frozen crust (2 shells)
    4 medium-sized sweet apples (such as Gala) OR 3 sweet apples and 1 tart apple for a complex taste
    1tsp vanilla extract
    1 tsp lemon peel (dried and reconstituted or fresh)
    1 heaping tablespoon honey
    1 tbsp cinnamon
    1/3 cup flour

Tips

*Cut the cals: cut up the second crust and make a lattice-work topping, using only 2/3 of the dough.
*Cut them even further: make an open-faced apple pie and don't even use the second crust!


Directions

Preheat oven to 350 F.
Let the crusts warm up naturally until they are pliable. In the meantime, you can cut up the apples.
Cut 3 apples into 1/4" chunks (I leave the skins on my apples, so make sure the pieces are small enough that the skin doesn't bother you)
Cut the fourth apple (if you are using a mixture of sweet and tart, this should be a SWEET apple) into very small pieces (minced). This will help make that sticky consistency that holds the pie together.
Dump the apples into a bowl and let rest for 15 minutes until juices pool at the bottom, then add the rest of the ingredients, coating the apples. Add flour last. Add flour slowly, and stop adding when it no longer soaks into the apples.
Turn-out the pie crust into a 9" pie plate. It is okay if it breaks a little and doesn't fit, you are going to use some greased fingers and ingenuity to press the crust thinner and fill out the plate.
Then add the apple mixture and turn the second pie crust out on top. You can also roll this crust separately if you want to have defined edges to your pie. Add some holes to let steam escape and bake the pie for 30 minutes at 350 F.
