Pie.Chef's picture
Ingredients
  Pastry 1 (For Double Crust Pie)
  Sliced cooking apples 6 Cup (96 tbs)
  Lemon juice 1 Tablespoon
  Sugar 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  All purpose flour 2 Tablespoon
  Ground cinnamon 1 Teaspoon
  Ground nutmeg 1 Dash
  Butter/Margarine 1 Tablespoon
Directions

Prepare and roll out pastry. Line a 9-inch pie plate with half of the pastry. Trim pastry to edge of pie plate.
1. If apples lack tartness, sprinkle with the 1 tablespoon lemon juice.
2. In mixing bowl combine sugar, flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg. (For a very juicy pie, omit the flour.)
3. Add sugar mixture to the sliced apples; toss to mix.
4. Fill pastry-lined pie plate with apple mixture; dot with butter or margarine. Cut slits in top crust for escape of steam; place pastry atop filling. Seal and flute edge.
5. Sprinkle some sugar atop, if desired. To prevent overbrowning, cover edge of pie with foil. Bake in 375° oven for 25 minutes. Remove foil; bake for 20 to 25 minutes more or till crust is golden. Cool pie on rack.
