Apple Pie

Spring is upon us and I don’t know if you’ve noticed it, but my root cellar contents are less than fresh.   If you have some apples that are getting a bit soft this is a great way to use them up!

This was my first ever baked pie recipe.  It was so yummy that I haven’t changed it a lick over the years.   Enjoy!


· 6 c. apples, thinly sliced

· ¾ c. sugar

· 1T butter

· 1 tsp. cinnamon

· Nutmeg, to taste

· 9” double pie crusts


Prepare pastry for a 2-crust pie.  Preheat oven to 450F.    Prepare/slice apples.

In a small bowl, combine cinnamon, sugar and a dash of nutmeg.   Amount used depends on tartness of apples.

Arrange apple slices in pastry-lined pie plate.  Sprinkle each layer with cinnamon/sugar mixture.   Repeat until apples are gone. Dot top layer with small pieces of butter. Cover with top crust.

Place pie plate on a cookie sheet and put on lowest rack for 10 minutes.  Reduce temperature to 350F and bake for another 30-35 minutes.

Serves 8.

    It is, I made it before I could cook at all — it;s especially easy if you buy the crust :).
