CRUST

  • PREPARE single pie crust according to recipe directions, using a 9-inch pie plate. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons bread crumbs onto bottom of crust. Do not bake. Heat oven to 425°F.

FILLING

  • PLACE apples in large skillet with a lid. Sprinkle with cinnamon and water. Cover. Steam on medium heat 7 minutes or until tender, stirring 2 or 3 times.
  • SPOON apples and any liquid into large bowl. Sprinkle with 3 tablespoons flour. Toss gently.
  • COMBINE brown sugar, heavy cream and 2 tablespoons butter in small saucepan. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil. Boil 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla and almond extracts. Reserve 1/4 cup brown sugar syrup for glaze. Add remaining syrup to apples. Toss to coat. Cool.
