Apple pie! I love this recipe that I have using for many years. It came from the Fannie Farmer Baking Book which I *think* is out of print now. It’s not overly sweet like some apple pies. I usually use Granny Smith apples but sometimes I mix the apples up and use a couple of different kinds in the same pie. Try to use ones that hold their shape some or you will get an applesauce pie. I am pie dough challenged so I use the Pillsbury ones from the store.
Dough for a 2 crust pie, either homemade or store bought
6 large apples, peeled and sliced
about 3/4 cup sugar, if your apples are very sweet you can cut down on the sugar amount
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 tbsps flour
1/8 tsp salt
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp butter
Mix all filling ingredients, except butter, together in a large bowl. Place filling ingredients in bottom crust, dot with butter, put top crust on. Crimp the pie dough edges together. Cut a couple of slits in the top of the pie crust.
Sometimes, I brush half and half over the top crust and sprinkle with sugar.
Bake at425º for 30 minutes. Reduce heat to 350º and continue baking for 20 to 30 minutes.
