  1. * Pastry dough for double-crust pie*
  2. * 8-9 cups of apples cored, peeled and sliced. Use a mix of Granny Smith and McIntosh apples. The Granny Smith stays firm and does not get mushy. McIntosh apples add a nice tangy sweet flavor
  3. * ½ - ¾ cup raw honey, to taste
  4. * 1 TBLS cinnamon
  5. * 2 TBLS unsalted organic butter
  6. * 1 teaspoon vanilla, optional
  7. * 2 TBLS organic lemon juice, freshly squeezed (optional)
  8. * 1 TBLS arrowroot flour for thicker sauce (optional). Commingle well with 2 TBLES cold water
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C)
  2. Prepare apples; core, peel and quarter in thirds crosswise
  3. Place apples in a large bowl. Stir in honey, spices, vanilla, lemon juice and arrowroot mixture
  4. Ready a deep dish baking pan with your favorite pie crust. Strategically place the apple mixture into the baking dish. Dot with butter once filled with apples
  5. Top the apples with a second crust, seal edges and flute. For a fancy presentation, braid the crust for a beautiful lattice display. Note: if you choose not to braid the crust, make sure to cut 3-4 slits with a knife to allow steam to escape
  6. You can also add an egg wash to the crust to give it a nice golden color with a shiny finish. Beat 1 egg with 1 TBLS of water, brush on gently. You can use milk instead of water for a reddish-brown color with a fairly matte finish.
  7. Bake for 30 minutes at 375°F then reduce heat to 325°F (160°C) and bake for another hour or until crust is golden brown and apples are tender
  8. Cool deep dish apple pie on rack for at least 2 hours. Serve with French vanilla ice cream or with Crème Anglaise Custard Sauce
