First make your butter syrup. In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium or medium-low heat, taking care not to let the butter brown. Once the butter has melted, stir in the flour to form a thick paste. Slowly add the water, white sugar and brown sugar. Stir everything thoroughly and bring the mixture to a boil. Then reduce the heat and let it simmer for a few minutes.
Take a 9 inch baking pan and carefully lay half of your pastry crust over the bottom. Slice your apples and fill the baking pan with them generously, forming a slight mound. Work the rest of your crust into a lattice and place it carefully over your apples, sealing the edges carefully and cutting off any extra dough. Take your butter syrup and gently trickle it over the crust. Make sure you pour the liquid slowly so that it does not run off the apples or the crust.
Place your pie in your preheated oven and bake it for approximately 15 minutes. Then reduce the temperature to 350°F/175°C and let your pie bake for another 35 to 45 minutes until the apples inside are steaming and soft, while the crust is beautifully golden and crisp.
