1/4 cup corn starch
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup corn syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 large apples, peeled and thinly sliced
1 9-inch pie shell, unbaked
2 tbsp chopped walnuts, optional
Ground cinnamon to sprinkle over top apples, optional
In a medium bowl combine the sugar and corn starch; whisk in the eggs. Stir in the butter, corn syrup, and vanilla extract. Fold in half the apple slices. Pour into the prepared pie shell.
Place the remaining in an overlapping circle design on top of the pie. Sprinkle with the chopped walnuts and/or cinnamon, if using.
Bake the pie at 375 degrees for 50 minutes or until the center of the pie is set. Cool completely on a wire rack.
If using a frozen pie shell, do not thaw. Place pie in a preheated oven on a preheated cookie sheet and bake as above.
