Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Melt the butter in a saucepan. Stir in flour to form a paste. Add white sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla extract, bringing to a boil. Reduce temperature and let simmer. (Mixture may appear clumpy…don’t worry–it’ll be fine once baked.)
  2. Mix caramel mixture in with apples until evenly coated. Place the bottom crust in your pan. Brush bottom with beaten egg. Fill with apples, mounded slightly. Cover with top crust. Seal bottom and top crusts together and add crimping to edges. Brush the top and edges with beaten egg. Sprinkle with course sugar.
  3. Place foil-lined cookie sheet on lower rack to catch juices. Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees. You may need to cover with foil to prevent burning, so keep an eye on it! Continue baking for 35 to 45 minutes, until apples are soft.
