8 Granny smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced


Preheat oven to 425°F.

In a small saucepan, melt butter. Stir in flour to form a paste. Add water, white sugar, and brown sugar and bring to a boil. Reduce temperture and let simmer.

Place the bottom crust in pie pan. Fill with apples and slightly mound.
