Life isn't complete without an amazing recipe for Apple Pie. Even better if it has been handed down from generation to generation. This Homemade Apple Pie is filled to the brim with fresh apples and then coated with a from-scratch caramel sauce that will have everyone licking the plate and asking for a second slice.
In a large bowl add sliced apples, water, and salt. Allow the apples to rest in the water for about 10 minutes.
Add sugar, brown sugar, and water and bring to a boil. Reduce the temperature to low, and simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
Set out an 18" piece of parchment and roll out one of the pie crusts to about 14". Using a pizza cutter, slice into 1-inch strips. Set aside.
Place the second pie crust in the bottom of a 9-inch pie pan. Pressing the sides to fit the pan.
Drain and rinse the sliced apples to wash off any remaining salt, and then pour them on top of the bottom crust.
Gently pour the sugar mixture over the latticework crust. Do your best to cover as much of the crust as you can, gently use a basting brush to cover any open spots.
Bake on the lowest oven rack for 15 minutes at 425° and then reduce the temperature to 350° F, and bake for another 35 to 40 minutes.
