Old Fashioned Apple Pie

  • 9 inch pastry for 2 crust pie

Combine:

  • 3/4 – 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 – 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp flour

Mix lightly through 6 – 7 cups sliced peeled apples (2 – 2 1/2 lb), sliced 1/4″ thick. Heap in pastry lined 9″ pie pan. Dot with butter. Adjust top crust and flute edges; cut vents. Bake in hot oven, 325°, for 50 – 60 minutes or till crust is browned and apples are tender.

NOTE: Amount of sugar you will need varies with the tartness of apples.

GREEN APPLE PIE:  Add 1/2 cup more sugar. Omit the spices completely or reduce amounts. If apples are very juice, then add 2 Tbsp more flour.
