An awesome apple pie...and yes, it does work better with store-bought frozen pie shells!

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup heavy cream, and 1/4 cup butter. Heat until butter is melted, stirring occasionally. In a small bowl, whisk together 2 tbsp. cornstarch, 2 tbsp. milk, and 1 tsp. vanilla. Stir into saucepan, cook until thickened, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and set aside to cool slightly.

In a medium bowl, combine 2 (3 if they're small) cooking apples (Macintosh/Spartan) peeled, cored and sliced, 1 tbsp. flour, and 1/4 tsp. cinnamon. Mix well.

Thaw frozen pie shells at room temperature for 10-15 minutes. Line a 9-inch pie pan with one of the crusts. Pour thickened filling mixture into the crust. Arrange apple mixture evenly over filling. Top with second crust, seal and flute edges. Cut slits in top crust.

In a pre-heated 400 degree oven, bake for 30-40 minutes, or until crust is a golden brown and apples are tender. Cool for at least 30 minutes.

In a small bowl, combine 1/2 cup icing sugar, 1 tbsp. milk, 1/4 tsp. vanilla, and 1 tbsp. softened butter. Blend until smooth, pour evenly over warm pie. Refrigerate fo at least 2 hours before serving.
