Recipe Ingredients:

Pastry for two-crust (9-inch) pie

6 Gala or Golden Delicious apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup chopped nuts

Rum Sauce:
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 cup cold water

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (205°C). Line a 9-inch pie pan with half of pastry.
  2. For Filling: In large bowl, combine apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt; mix well. Transfer apple mixture to pastry-lined pie pan.
  3. Roll out remaining pastry to 10-inch round; cut into 3/4-inch-thick strips. Arrange strips in lattice pattern on top of apples; trim edges. Pinch edges of bottom crust and lattice top together.
  4. Bake 15 minutes. Reduce oven heat to 350°F (175°C) and bake 30 to 35 minutes longer or until apples are tender.
  5. For Rum Sauce: In medium saucepan, combine sugar, water and cinnamon. Bring to boil over medium-high heat; boil 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. In small bowl, blend cornstarch and cold water; gradually stir into hot sugar mixture. Return to heat and cook, stirring constantly, until mixture bubbles and thickens. Stir in rum; cook 1 minute.
