Affordable Apple Pie and Cream
Who doesn’t love apple pie or tart with a dollop of cream. This pie was made for our large family. A nice size pie dish would be the best. A great pie crust is also what makes the difference for this pie. I used bought pastry, but in the future will try and make a pie crust myself.
We had a large quantity of apples needing to be used. Sweet apples were used. Would rather recommend a blend of granny smith and sweet apples. Chop up the apple pieces smaller. Add raison and cinnamon and toss to mix that cinnamon evenly to all the apples pieces.
Heating the butter and thickening with some flour makes the sauce. Then adding the sugar and some more water to make a frothy creamy sauce. This sauce was darker, as panella brown sugar was used and not white sugar.
Pour the sauce over the apple pieces and stir up and mixed thoroughly.
Roll the pastry dough in the bottom of the pie dish and press up the sides of the dish.
Fill the dish with apple pieces. Without wetting the sides of the pastry, and place more in the middle of the bowl.
The other piece of pastry cut with a pizza cutter into some strips for a lattice. Much nicer than I did. But it came out much prettier.
The baked apple pie cooling on a rack.
Then whip up some cream until stiff and slice and serve with a dollop of cream.
This pie or tart, is really an affordable apple pie and cream with a dollop on top.

Preheat oven 425 Deg.F (220 Deg. C)

Sprinkle the top of the apples with cinnamon and toss to combine all.
Melt butter in a pot on medium heat.

Then Whisk in your water and sugar, with continues whisking. Bringing to boil then reduce heat and simmer for 3 min. whisking all the time.
When frothy and smooth, remove from the heat.
Pour the butter sauce over the chopped apples and coat the apples while turning around.
Layer a sheet of pastry dough in the bottom of the pie dish, pressing the dough firmly to the sides and lapping the top of the pie dish.
Fill the coated apples into the ready pie dish, making sure that the apples do not make the lips of the dough wet with sauce on the sides and edges. This will make the pasting of the dough difficult when doing a lattice on top. Leaving the apples to be higher in the middle of the dish.
Layer the next pastry dough on a floured top. Cut with a pizza cutter into strips for latticing. Take the longer strip for the middle and do a lattice over the top of the apple pie.
Placing any left over dough on the edges and pressing the doughs together, making an edging with your fingers.
Bake in heated oven for 15 min.
