Mom's Apple Pie

This is THE pie of choice for my Dad. My Mom has been making this pie for my Dad for 55 years and when you've had the same pie for that many years you don't deter from the plan. Ask my best friend Kathy about that LOL.

First make pastry for a 2 crust pie (Recipe for that later or use your favorite or just buy one Debra!)
Pie:
1/2 cup of sugar
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. salt
8-9 medium tart apples peeled and sliced thinly
2 TBS. butter

Instructions:
1. Heat oven to 425 degrees. Prepare pastry for pie.
2. Mix sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in a small bowl.
3. Dot bottom of pastry with 1/2 of butter. Arrange apples in pan. Pile them high as they will cook down while baking.
4. Sprinkle sugar mixture on top of apples and dot with remaining butter.
5. Cover with top pastry and cut 6- 7 slits in it. Pinch the edges together and mark with fork all the way around.
6. Cover edge with 3 inch aluminum foil to prevent excessive browning.
Bake for 40- 50 mins or until crust is brown and juices are bubbling through.
Remove foil last 10 mins. of baking.


Enjoy!
