Apple Pie

P1010805

  • 6-8 tart apples, sliced thin. ( 6 cups)
  • 3/4 to 1 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. flour
  • 1/2 to 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp. butter

Pastry for 2 crust, 9 inch pie.

Combine sugar, flour (if used) & spices.  Line 9 inch pie pan with pastry. Fill with apples mixture, placing apples in carefully.  Dot with butter.  Adjust top crust, cutting slits for escape of steam; seal.  Brush with a little mile if you want a brown top crust. Bake at 400 degrees for 50 minutes or until  brown and apples are soft.

Oma’s tips:  Tartness of apples is important.  Mackintosh, Granny Smith, Ida red, Jonathan, Stayman/Winesap are good but not Delicious. Avoid too much sugar.  Be sure apples are thoroughly cooked.  The 2 Tbsp of flour prevents too much juice when serving, but I don’t use it.  To get a flaky crust, avoid too much handling.
