2 tablespoons butter, melted
5 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon apple pie spice
½ teaspoon sea salt
1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons sparkling sugar
1 (half-gallon) carton vanilla ice cream

Step 1-2: Line a Sweet Creations ceramic pie pan with one round of pie dough. Prepare apples

Step 3: In a large bowl, stir together apples, lemon juice and zest, brown sugar, butter, flour, apple pie spice and sea salt, until well mixed.

Step 4: Pour apples into crust-lined pan, pressing down firmly to compact the apples as much as possible.

Step 5: Place the second round of pie dough on top…

Step 6: Crimp edges.

Step 7: Cut 4 small slits in the top of the pie.

Step 8: Brush beaten egg on top, sprinkle with sparkling sugar.

NOTE: If pie crust turns medium golden as it cooks, cover gently with a sheet of foil to keep the crust from over browning.
