How to Make Apple Pie Filling

Knowing how to make apple pie filling is one of those things that practically defineswhat it is to be an American...well, an American home cook, anyway!

Directions
1. 
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion and saute 3 minutes. Sprinkle onion with the flour and cook 2 minutes. Add the celery, carrots, peas and chicken broth. Turn heat to medium high; cook 2 to 3 minutes, until sauce thickens. Add the chicken, salt and basil to taste; mix.
2. 
Spoon the mixture into six oven-safe ramekins, filling each to the top.
3. 
Unfold the sheets of phyllo dough, keeping them stacked. Use a paring knife to cut the dough into six circles that are 1 1/2 inches bigger in diameter than the ramekins. Place one stack on each ramekin; brush with some of the egg yolk. Top with the 1/4 teaspoon of basil and coat again with egg yolk.
4. 
Cook on the top rack of oven 10 minutes. Serve.
