Romantic Monday APPLE PIE A LA MODE


2 store-bought, refrigerated pie crusts 
¼ cup brown sugar
¼ cup white sugar
½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
2 tablespoons cornstarch
pinch salt
7 Granny Smith apples, peeled & thinly sliced
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
HAAGEN DAZS vanilla ice cream 
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Unroll pie crust into a pie pan or use a ready-made pie shell. 
With a fork, poke holes all over the crust. Bake crust for 10 minutes. 
2. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, white sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cornstarch & salt. In 
a large bowl, combine apples, lemon juice & vanilla. Stir the apple mixture well & pour it 
into the half-baked pie shell. Sprinkle the sugar mixture evenly over the apples. Place the 
pieces of butter evenly over the apples. 
3. Cover the pie with the top crust. Seal the edges with a fork or finger tips. With a sharp 
knife, cut four 1-inch holes in the top crust, to allow the steam to escape. Cover the edges of 
the pie crust with foil to prevent them from burning. Place the pie on a cookie sheet & bake 
for 45-50 minutes. Serve each slice warm with ice cream on top.
