When I created my fall bucketlist, "bake an apple pie" was number two on my list! My friend Angela and I got together last weekend and baked the most delicious apple pie - not too sweet, nice and moist with a lovely latticed top. I hope you enjoy our recipe!

What You'll Need:
6 Granny Smith Apples
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup milk
1 stick butter
2 pie crust (1 package normally comes with two)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt 
2 teaspoons Vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Take out pie crust to thaw (if frozen) so that it gets to room temperature. Set aside.

Cut the apples into 1/8ths and peel. Put the apples in a bowl and lightly dust with 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 teaspoon each of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves.

To make the caramel sauce: In a pot, heat one stick of butter with 1 cup of brown sugar and 1/2 of milk or heavy whipping cream. Add 2 teaspoons of vanilla and a 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Continuously stir over medium heat for 12 minutes or until thickened.

Place one pie crust into pie pan. Put seasoned apples in the pie pan and pour caramel sauce over them.

To make the lattice top: Take second pie crust and cut into 1/2 inch strips. Use these strips to make the lattice top. Place one strip in the middle of the pie pan. Place two strips on either side of the middle strip (so that there's five strips on top, total.) Fold down strips 2 and 4 half way and place new strip across perpendicular. Unfold strips 2 and 4. You should start to see a weaving pattern. Fold down strips 1, 3 and 5 half way and place new strip across perpendicular. Keep doing this until you have a full lattice pattern. (Example here.)

Cover outer crust with foil (to keep it from burning.) Place pie in the oven and bake for 1 hour 15 minutes at 350. Remove foil after 1 hour.
