Quick and Easy Apple Pie
Makes 1 pie pan (9.5" diameter and 1.5" depth)
2 pcs Fuji apple, thinly sliced
1 pair of store-bought pie crust
¾ cup granulated sugar
6 tbsp unsalted butter, roughly cut + more for greasing
2 tbsp all-purpose flour
½ tsp cinnamon powder
1 egg, beaten
3 tbsp water
1. Melt butter in a medium pot over medium heat. Once melted and bubbly on the edge, add in flour, sugar, and cinnamon powder. Whisk constantly to avoid any lumps. Bring mixture to a boil then reduce heat, simmer for 3 minutes until mixture is thickened. Take off heat and pour over sliced apple. Give a toss to coat all the apple slices and set aside.
2. Grease pie pan with butter. Line pie pan with bottom crust, at this point it’s okay if you have excess crust on the edge. Fill pie pan with apple mixture along with the sauce. Roll the top crust on top of the filling, press seams together to seal it and fold it down all the way around. Using your thumbs and index fingers, pinch crust (like in the picture) to flute. Brush top crust lightly with egg wash and sprinkle with sugar if desired.
3. Set oven to 425°F for upper heat and lower heat using Bake method. Bake pie in the oven for 15 minutes, then turn oven down to 350°F for upper heat and lower heat to continue baking for 25 minutes more. Cover top of the pie with aluminum foil if crust turns too brown. Remove from oven and let cool for at least 30 minutes before cutting. Eat it warm, hot, or cold.
