Ultimate Apple Pie

Apple pie is the official food of this mystery writer (well, after steak, green chile, french fries, and macaroni). I make this stuff every year. Enjoy it topped with a scoop of French Vanilla ice cream. It’s delicioso…

Filling:
8 apples cut up really small
1/3 cup honey (plus extra to dribble on the crust)
3 TBSP sugar
LOTS AND LOTS OF CINNAMON
2 TBSP of FLOUR or CORNSTARCH

Topping (optional, I only use it sometimes…)
1/4 cup butter
1 pkg graham crackers, crushed…
cinnamon to taste
1/3 cup brown sugar

Crust:
I use the Better Homes and Gardens single crust recipe for a 9″ pie. If you want to do a lattice topping, you may want to make enough for two crusts.

METHOD (madness):
1. Make pie crust, roll it out, refrigerate it while you make the filling.
2. Cut up apples, mix in honey, sugar, and cinnamon to taste. Also, add flour to thicken.
3. Sprinkle on topping if you so desire.
4. Bake pie (with tin foil covering it) at 400 degrees for 15 minutes and than at 350 for an additional 30 minutes (both times, please. I don’t know why, it’s just in the recipe.)

Enjoy!
For those of you with an adventurous personality, try this recipe with GREEN CHILE! Trust me, it’s exceptional. Just throw a couple of diced green chiles into the apple mix and follow the reqular instructions…
