|Apples||4 Large, peeled and sliced|
|Sugar||1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)|
|Brown sugar||1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)|
To the apples add 1/2 cup sugar (or a bit more, as your taste dictates and according to the sweetness or tartness of the apples), the brown sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon to taste, and the flour.
Line a pie pan with pastry and into it pour the mixture.
Dot with butter.
Cover with a top crust and bake in a fairly hot oven, 450°, about 45 minutes.
A very easy way to be sure that the apples will be cooked as tender as you like them is to stew them with the sugar for a short time before putting them in the crust; let them cool a bit before adding the flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg, and then put them in the crust to bake.
