Flat Apple Pie

One word...yum! (and yes that is a bite missing before I could take the picture!) This is a recipe out of the Pioneer Woman's cookbook and it is so quick, easy, and delicious! It makes the perfect amount for my little family with no left overs, which is a good thing so we aren't eating apple pie everyday for 5 days. The recipe makes 2 of these, but I halved the recipe since my family is small.

5 peeled and sliced Granny Smith apples
2 Tbsp. flour
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
2- 9" round pie crusts, or 1 recipe for homemade
1/2 stick of butter

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2. Stir together apples, flour, lemon juice, sugars, and salt. Set aside.
3. Roll out pie crusts into large circles and place on a baking sheets.
4. Place half apple mixture on one crust and the remaining on the other.
5. Fold over the edges of the crust so that it covers 2-3 inches of the apple mixture. (No need to be artistic here!)
6. Dot the tops of the pies with chunks of butter. Bake for 30-40 minutes until golden and bubble. Slice with pizza cutter and serve in wedges.
*Top with jarred caramel for extra sweetness, if desired.
