Old Fashioned Apple Pie

Double Sure Fire Pie Crust
9” glass deep-dish pie dish

8 large apples (about 13 cups)
(A mix of Granny, Cortland, Golden Delicious, Jonathan or apples of your liking)
¼ cup white sugar
¼ cup light brown sugar
2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
½ cups honey
1 Tablespoon cinnamon
1-2 teaspoons nutmeg
A pinch of ginger, and cloves and salt
¼ cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract powder, optional
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 Tablespoons butter, cut into pats

In a large bowl combine all ingredients; toss gently to mix.
Spoon half of the mixture on to prepared pie crust; pack down tightly. Mound the remaining apple mixture into a dome. Press dome with hands for a firm shape. Add pats of butter around apple mixture.
Cover top with pie crust; use glaze around edges and pinch or flute to seal. Make vent holes in decorative pattern. Use remaining dough pieces to make star or other shapes for top of pie. Brush top of pie with glaze and use like glue for decorative top pieces. Sprinkle course turbinado sugar on top of pie.

Glaze: (to seal pie edges and for top of pie/decorations)
1 egg
1 teaspoon water
2 Tablespoons sugar

Heat oven to 425°F and place pie on center rack. Bake for 10-15 minutes. Reduce temperature to 325°F and bake for 35 minutes, or until crust is golden brown. If crust is browning too quickly place foil around edges of pie to protect the crust.
