Oh, it's a 4th of July weekend! Happy 4th of July to all my American readers! Here's a recipe from Simple Pleasures of the Home: Comforts and Crafts for Living Well to sweeten the weekend:

Rosey Apple Pie

3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup red cinnamon candies (Red-Hots)
5 medium cooking apples
1 tablespoon flour
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon butter or margarine
9-inch double pie crust

Preheat oven to 400 F. In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, water and cinnamon candies; cook until candies dissolve. Pare, core, and slice apples. Add to sugar mixture and simmer until apples are red. Drain; save syrup. Blend flour into cooled syrup and add lemon juice. Spread apples in a pastry lined 9-inch pie plate and pour syrup over apples. Dot with butter. Cover with top crust, seal and flute edges. Cut slits for escape of steam. Bake about 30 minutes until desired brownness. Makes 1 pie.
