Here are the recipes for the desserts on my Thanksgiving buffet dinner menu. I figured I’d post the recipes now before the kitchen chaos begins (and I’ll post pics of the final products by Thursday)…
prepared double pie crust
½ cup butter
3 tablespoons flour
¼ cup water
½ cup white sugar
½ cup brown sugar
1/2 tablespoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
8 apples, peeled, cored & sliced thin.
Preheat oven to 425.
Melt butter in saucepan & stir in flour to form a roux.
Add water, sugars, vanilla and cinnamon and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer.
In a deep dish pie pan, place one crust.
In a bowl, add apples that have been sliced thin.
Gently pour 3/4 of the sugar/butter mixture into the bowl of apples; toss to coat.
Carefully layer apples into crust, piling high to use them all.
Cover the top of the pie with a lattice work of crust.
Brush lattice work top with remaining sugar mixture.
Bake 15 minutes in the oven.
Reduce temp to 350 and bake 35-45 minutes.
